Which One Direction Member Had the Best Solos of the Group? Vote!
In light of Tomlinson's recent comments about never getting a solo on 'X Factor,' we want to know who you think had the best solos in 1D. Was it Louis, or did you favor someone else's big moments?
With One Direction still on hiatus, all five members are getting time to shine with their own solo endeavors. Although Harry Styles is the only one to have a full album out (aside from Zayn Malik, who left the band in March 2015 and released his debut LP Mind of Mine in January 2016), each 1D member has flexed his solo singing muscles with at least one single.
Prior to them going their separate ways, though, the One Direction guys all had shining parts as members of the group, too. While Louis Tomlinson acknowledged in a recent interview that he never had a solo as the group competed on X Factor(U.K.) in 2010, even Tomlinson had plenty of breakout moments when singing with the guys – especially in their two most recent albums, FOUR and Made In The A.M. And if you don’t believe us, please take a listen to “No Control” and “Love You Goodbye” right now.
But as Tomlinson alluded to in his Guardian interview, his bandmates each had some amazing solo opportunities as well. Niall Horan’s parts in “Better Than Words,” Styles’ belt moments in “Drag Me Down,” Liam Payne’s “Little Things” croons, and Malik’s falsetto in “You & I” – all are terrific examples of the vocal ability each 1Der showcased on the five albums the group released pre-hiatus.
So, in light of Tomlinson’s recent comments, we want to know who you think had the best solos in 1D. Was it Louis, or did you favor someone else’s big moments? Vote in the poll below!
