One Direction took to the dead of night to release the music video for their newest single “Drag Me Down.” It’s their first single/video since Zayn Malik left the band back in March.
It’s pretty obvious when you listen to the song that it was originally written to include Zayn in it because of the fact you can feel/hear the part that was written for him. Niall does shine in the song because he is doing the Zayn parts. Also, all the members are actually singing in it and you can tell the difference. That right is like a miracle because it’s usually Liam, Harry, and Zayn.
The video features 1D going through their training as NASA prepares to send them into space. I would also like to point out that it’s rather a slap to the face of Lance Bass that One Direction will be able to go into space and he won’t. In between training for space, they also have time to perform the song in an open storage area, kinda like how the Backstreet Boys did in the “I Want It That Way” video. The video was okay. It wasn’t anything to be like “OMG” at. I’m not going to lie, it kind of doesn’t make any sense why NASA would send 1D into space when you have Lady Gaga and Lance Bass just dying to go up. That was just random.
Overall, the song is a good catchy song. Not one of their best song, but it’s still a good song. I’m big on it just because everyone’s voice stands out in it. The video is bland and just random.
Here’s the video for your eyes to enjoy:
