The hashtag #1DHistoryVideo is all over Twitter as One Direction released the music video for “History”, the third single from the band’s fifth album, Made in the A.M.
“You and me got a whole lot of history, so don’t let it go, we can make some more, we can live forever” Harry, Liam, Louis and Niall sing on the chorus while a tear-inducing black-and-white footage from the X-Factor days in 2010 plays in the background.
“History” is an upbeat pop song written by Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson alongside producers John Ryan and Julian Bunetta.
The nostalgic and emotional video is packed with footage of the band throughout the years, including footages of former member Zayn Malik, one of which sees him huddle up together in the back of a car giggling, while another shows him Niall and the newly solo star flaunting their bromance as they share a hug in the back of another vehicle.
One Direction is currently on a hiatus, taking a “well-earned break,” as stated by Horan last August in his tweet.
