1D's "Drag Me Down" Breaks Spotify Record, Gets Live Debut & Zayn Cosign
One Direction might not have Zayn Malik anymore, but they aren't slowing the pace. Last week they shared "Drag Me Down," their first single since Malik's departure. The song broke a Spotify record for one-day streams: This bad boy was played 4.75 million times in a 24-hour period, beating Wiz Khalifa's "See You Again," which did 4.26 million.
The group then hit Indianapolis to perform the song live for the very first time; everyone loved it. See a clip of "Drag Me Down" live up top. We're calling it now—it's a total Liam Payne/Harry Styles banger.
The news doesn't end there! Following the release, Zayn Malik tweeted his support of "Drag Me Down," meaning all is well between our favorite British blokes:
Proud of my boys the new single is sick. Big love. :) x— zayn (@zaynmalik) August 1, 2015
