Actually, Harry thought of the name & this is very basic knowledge of One Direction.
One Direction started in the year 2010. One direction is a boy music band that comprises of four guys named Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, and Harry Styles. They are from England and Ireland. They were originally five in numbers before Zayn Malik pulled out. Their mentor, Simon Cowell, was the one that gathered them in the year 2010. He thought it well to put them together so as to enable continuity. They went for the 7th series of The X Factor competition together, and they got the third position.
The group was signed to Syco Music, after which they released one of their most famous singles; ‘What Makes You Beautiful”. The group also recorded their first album soon after they were signed to the Syco Music. Part of the popular tracks in their first album includes ‘Gotta Be You’ and ‘One Thing.’ They have toured through Asia, Europe, Australia, South America, and North America continent.
I think Zayn Malik's decision to One Direction was a good step for his career. Zayn Malik has maintained on several occasions that he left One Direction so that he could have time for his solo career. He opined, leaving One Direction would give him the time and the avenue to explore his creativity fully. This is quite understandable, as there is little to what he could do as a group.
Although according to the official statement he made out to people in connection to his departure from One Direction, he made it clear that he was leaving so that he could enjoy his life as a gentle 22-year old guy. He also stated that he left because he wanted to have time for his private life. However, his decision didn't shake the decision of the other four members to continue as a band, and they were able to release their 5th album.
The reason as to why One Direction took a hiatus in 2016 is one of the things people have been trying to unravel. The real reasons why One Direction split is not too difficult to figure out; in fact, each member of the band had on many occasions stated why they needed to split for a while. I think the first reason is that they wanted to have a life of their own where they could decide and have control over their time.
Since 2010 when One Direction started as a band, they have been released five albums; that is one album per year. This, according to them, was energy sapping and stressful. It was on this account that a member of the band by the name Zayn Malik left the group. He actually stated that he left because he wanted to enjoy his life and relax. Another reason for their breakup is that they all wanted to start their solo careers separately.
One Direction is a group of five young guys with amazing talents in music. What made them stood out during their days as a group was the uniqueness in their music and their individual's talents. While I truly love all the members of the group equally, however, Niall Horan happens to be my favorite talent of all time. I decided to call him 'talent' because he is indeed one.
Aside from the fact that he has a unique voice, he is also a guitarist, and his lines are always top-notch. Louis Tomlinson would have been my favorite because he is a songwriter, and he equally has a sweet voice, but he looks like the weakest of them all. Niall Horan is not only my favorite because of his talent, but he is also a cool guy anybody would love to hang out with. And I always think of him as the most loyal out of the five.
It was in the seventh series of The X Factor, where Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, and Zayn Malik came to audition as solo singers. The X Factor is a reality television show in Great Britain, which was created by Simon Cowell to discover new singing talents. The show actually started in the year 2004. These five earlier mentioned guys could not make it individually to their show, and the judges of The X Factor series had to put them together to form a group.
This group was given the name ‘One Direction.’ They came out the third position in the series competition. After the competition has ended, Simon Cowell thought the guys were worth keeping and bringing together. So, he gathered them for continuity. After a few moments, they were signed to Syco Music, where they fully started their music career. Though it seems they have been silent recently, they are still coming back on stage soon.
No doubt, One Direction remains on the world's biggest boy bands. The uniqueness in their music style, plus the amazing talent of each member of the band can be attributed to the huge success they have recorded in their careers. The truth here is that One Direction has released many songs which brought them the fame they are enjoying today, however, 'Best Song Ever' still remains their top-selling album of all time. 'Best Song Ever' was released on November 25, 2013.
A total number of 600,000 copies were sold, and this makes One Direction to be the first band to have their three albums entered the Billboard Music Awards. And not only that, all the three albums were rated very high. The album also made the record as the second top-selling album in the UK. Through this album, One Direction won the MTV Video Music Award for Best Song in 2013.
One Direction has won a total of 242 awards since they released their debut album in 2011. One Direction has also been nominated 366 times. Let's go down into the breakdown of how those awards were received. The lists of awards received by One Direction are Billboard Music Awards, ARIA Music Awards, Bravo Otto, Bambi Awards, American Music Awards, Do Something Awards, Brit Awards, and many others.
