One Direction is all grown up.
The fivesome-turned-foursome released their music video for "History," the latest single that was written as a tribute to the Directioners, and it is insanely nostalgic. Although Zayn Malik has made it clear that he has moved on in his life, that doesn't mean his participation never happened, so the guys included him in the video.
Talk about emotional, right?
The music video features black-and-white footage from the very beginning, including their time on The X Factor. Simon Cowell makes a cameo in it and launches what would become one of the most successful boy bands of a generation. They all look adorably young, jumping for joy at their victory. It splices footage of the now-foursome singing against old school, behind-the-scenes looks at the guys as they travel on their tour bus, meet fans and perform in concert.
