“Twelve years ago today the band got formed, but the first album was s–t any way,” he said.

One Direction’s debut record Up All Night was released in 2011 and went on to sell 4.5 million copies worldwide, with their tracks “What Makes You Beautiful” and “One Thing” becoming major hits. They dropped four more albums, culminating in 2015′s Made in the A.M.

“There’s still pressure obviously for me to deliver a good record . . . and me trying to find my feet coming out of a band as big as One Direction,” Louis added. He released his first solo album, Walls, in 2020.
