One Direction Premiere New Single ‘Drag Me Down’

July 30 2015, 10:28 pm


The British boyband gets seriously funky on their just released new single.

One Direction just pulled a(nother) Beyonce (they did this last year, too) and premiered their new single on iTunes out of nowhere!

It sounds equal parts Ed Sheeran and Bruno Mars, a far cry from the teen pop of old. And while Zayn Malik thought he was getting all the attention this week – signing with RCA to make “real music” and working with Frank Ocean producer Malay, it was 1D who had the trick up their sleeve. “Drag Me Down” marks the boys’ first record together as a foursome, and we must say, under the circumstances, it suits them quite nicely.

The song was written by Louis Tomlinson, along with frequent collaborator Julian Bunetta.

Update: The track hit #1 on the US iTunes in less than an hour, and is currently #1 on iTunes in 34 countries. Whoa.
