British pop band, One Direction, may be coming together for their 10th anniversary. Liam Payne, one of the members, revealed the possibility in his exclusive interview with The Sun published on April 9. 

One Direction had taken a break four years ago after Zayn Malik exited the group unexpectedly. Each of the five members, including Harry Styles, Niall Horan, and Louis Tomlinson, went on working solo.  

Payne was quoted as saying the boys have been speaking a lot over the previous weeks about the anniversary. One Direction is turning ten in July. What became more interesting for Payne was hearing "a lot of people's voices and seeing old content and different things," he said, which they have not seen for a long time or have not seen at all.  

Payne, 26, did not disclose more details about the plan. He admitted that he is not allowed to say more. However, he mentioned the members have brainstormed with ideas to make the anniversary reunion special to 1Ds. He further said the band is trying to make different things happen. "Stack It Up" singer reflected that more than anything, reconnecting is a good time for all of them. Of course, that excludes Zayn, who has yet to talk again with the rest of the band.

There might be some silver lining ahead, though.  Zayn was reported to have been re-followed by the four boys on Twitter. Malik, though has not appeared to follow them back. The observation fueled more excitement among the die-hard fans for the complete reunion they had all been anticipating. Fans took to social media expressing their euphoria over the development of a possible five-member full homecoming. #OneDirectionReunion started to trend on Twitter.

Hints for One Direction reunion had always been in the news. Last month, Harry Styles hinted at the possibility during his interview with the British show "Heart Breakfast" while quarantining in LA with his friends. The idea of streaming a concert with the band during the pandemic would be an "interesting way to reunite."

One Direction hiatus

Zayn Malik broke away from One Direction on March 19, 2015, in the middle of the "On the Road Again" worldwide tour. Stress was his reason for quitting. He went on solo and has released two studio albums. "Icarus Falls," his second LP was dropped in 2018. Several of his hits are "Pillowtalk," his debut single. "Dusk Till Dawn (ft. Sia)," "Let Me," among others.

Liam Payne came out with "LP1," his solo debut album in 2019 with the lead single "Strip That Down." On April 8, his collaboration, "Midnight" with DJ Alesso, was dropped.

Harry Styles has two solo albums; the first is the 2017 self-titled album and "Fine Line" released in 2019. "Lights Up," "Falling," "Sign of the Times" are several of his hit songs.

Niall Horan released two albums - "Flicker: Featuring the RTE Concert Orchestra" (2017) and the most recent, "Heartbreak Weather." "Slow Hands," "This Town," and "Too Much to Ask" are some of his top songs.
