Harry Styles on Zayn Malik's One Direction Exit: We've Had Some of Our Best Shows Since He Left

Harry Styles is opening up about Zayn Malik leaving One Direction in this new interview with EW.

Here’s what the 21-year-old One Direction member had to say:

On the 1D tour since Zayn left: “There have been incredible shows across Europe. Some of the best we’ve had! So we’re super excited about coming to America.”

On how One Direction has changed since Zayn’s departure: “The only changes have been that the parts Zayn sang have been picked up by different people. Other than that, the shows have been going absolutely great.”

On Zayn’s solo in “Story Of My Life”: “It would be pretty devastating if we took that song out. PHOTOS: Check out the latest pics of Liam [Payne] stepped up to do the high notes. He kicks them in the bollocks every show. He doesn’t hold back. The other guys have picked up [Zayn's] parts. We all know the songs well enough to do that.”

    I don’t know One Directions music, but the guys are adorable and it looks they don’t need him. I hope this kid knew what he was doing because it doesn’t look like he has been doing much since he left.

    Actually, Zayn is under a contract that he cannot release any music for 2 years. All the songs that have been coming are just leaks :)

    They let the crowd sing Zayn’s part most of the time now. They’re just lucky it’s not the Take Me Home tour where Zayn was belting out notes in almost every song or they would’ve sounded horrible. I think they need to just take a break.

  • Samanta

    Zayn has a good voice but I honestly prefer One Direction as a four piece. They look a lot more happy and involved now. It’s nice to see that they’re enjoying every concert and that every single member is part of the group because they really want to.
    Zayn didn’t feel like he wanted to be part of it. That is fine. But it doesn’t mean that 1D days are over.
    So excited for their new album!!!

  • Samanta

    Maybe they need a break because they are working non stop since the first day the group was formed.
    They have done more than some artists do in 8-10 years.
    I think they are ver talented and their music is much more mature now than it was before. The WMYB era is gone. Which is understandable. They sang WMYB when they were 16. At the time they were supposed to sing mature songs. They were kids.

    Laura, So true!!!

  • NickyAngel

    Sure Harry…That’s why they couldn’t sing Zayn’s part of the songs…Zayn had the more versatile voice, I think
