Remember the initial rumors with the “back to you” video? To hear it from some people, Louis was a vagrant around town, stealing shopping carts and gang posing in dark allies. Or he was going to be more stoic with scenes from his childhood home in Donny. Instead we got a sexy, charming, playful guy indulging in some footie with a kid, enjoying a game of pool, grubbing and drinking tea with his friends, bantering and nearly missing a high five with his co-star, bopping his head to the beat and giving the camera his wry, signature smirk. And gaaaaah. What a rush that was. It’s the one solo 1D video I always go back to. His swagger on the field, his laughter with Bebe and his command of the moment. “Lets do this!” God bless.
Now there’s bits about “miss you” coming out from a set in downtown LA that includes a rooftop, a museum, a club/party scene and Louis playing a larger than life character and I’m trying to take in these rumors with a grain of salt and set my expectations, but it’s haaaaaard. Louis in a club, dirty, reckless, beaming, sweaty, laughing, cocky and full of bravado, followed by him in quiet, moody honest moment, raw and vulnerable and beautiful, is all I want. All I fucking want!
