It’s been about two years since One Direction went on a “hiatus,” depriving Directioners of new 1D for way too long. But luckily for fans, DJ Earworm is hyper aware of fans’ dire need for more of the most revered modern century boy band, so he’s created a mashup of some of their biggest hits. You’re welcome.
The song is a 3 minute trip down memory lane, using “What Makes You Beautiful” as the backbone, gradually flowing into hits like “Gotta Be You,” “Story of My Life,” and “Perfect.” As for the video, it somehow seamlessly ties the song’s respective videos together, giving each alumni member their own 30-second highlight reel.
Check it out below.
While there is technically no new music coming from the band, there is plenty of new material coming from each former member separately. In 2016, Zayn Malik debuted his first ever solo album with Mind of Mine, which was followed by Niall Horan‘s Flicker and Harry Styles‘ self-titled soft rock LP. Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne have both followed with singles as well.
As for the main behind the mixing, DJ Earworm is most recognizable through his “United States of Pop,” end of the year mashups, which remix all of the biggest songs of the year into an easy-listening pop medley.
