One Direction surprised fans on July 31st with the release of their latest single, “Drag Me Down.” The song, which marks the first since Zayn Malik‘s departure, set the record for the most Spotify streams in one day, with 4.75 million plays on Friday.
On Tuesday, Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson appeared on Good Morning America to perform the single. After Malik tweeted his support with “Proud of my boys the new single is sick. Big love :)x” GMA hosts Lara Spencer and Michael Strahan asked the band about life as a foursome.
“Obviously, it’s different but, you know, when you lose a member of your team obviously everyone gets a little bit close together. No, it’s still going great. And that’s what this album is about, we’re still going strong, and we’re all still here,” Payne replied.
Fans were noticeably excited when Tomlinson finally broke his silence on his impending fatherhood. Strahan turned to Tomlinson and said, “Louis, from one father to another I want to congratulate you on your upcoming fatherhood. So how are you feeling?” Louis replied with a big smirk, “Thank you. Obviously it’s a very exciting time, so I’m buzzing.”
Well, sorry it’s officially official ladies.
