One Direction’s “Drag Me Down” Music Video Will Make You Forget There Ever Was a Zayn. Almost.

By  | 

July 31, 2015 marked a huge moment in One Direction history; the boy band, comprised of Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne and Niall Horan, released its first single since the long-lost fifth member of the group, Zayn Malik, called it quits on March 25 of the same year. That single’s titled “Drag Me Down.”

In true Beyonce-like fashion, the foursome’s tune came as a complete surprise to Directioners all over the world, who had only just learned that Zayn had signed to RCA Records in the days prior. Pretty impressive, considering the group’s entire Midnight Memories album, among other musical properties, leaked before the scheduled release dates. Well, fans, guess Columbia Records has found the secret formula — KEYWORD: secret — to keeping these kinds of things on lock (for the time being, anyway) because the official music video for “Drag Me Down” has magically debuted!



Seemingly out of nowhere, the first footage since “Night Changes” hit the web, and it’s got everyone freaking the eff out. ’cause when NASA is involved, you KNOW the guys have gotta mean business.

Although we do miss ourselves some Zayn, this was so bad-ass, you practically forget there ever was a fifth member. Well… almost. Watch for yourselves above, sing along with the lyrics below (as if you haven’t memorized them already) and tell us your thoughts in the comments!

[Harry:]
I’ve got fire for a heart
I’m not scared of the dark
You’ve never seen it look so easy
I got a river for a soul
And baby you’re a boat
Baby you’re my only reason



[Louis:]
If I didn’t have you there would be nothing left
The shell of a man who could never be his best
If I didn’t have you, I’d never see the sun
You taught me how to be someone, yeah

[Liam:]
All my life
You stood by me
When no one else was ever behind me
All these lights
They can’t blind me
With your love, nobody can drag me down

[Niall:]
All my life
You stood by me
When no one else was ever behind me
All these lights
They can’t blind me
With your love, nobody can drag me down



[Chorus:]
Nobody, nobody
Nobody can drag me down
Nobody, nobody
Nobody can drag me down

[Niall:]
I got fire for a heart
I’m not scared of the dark
You’ve never seen it look so easy
I got a river for a soul
And baby you’re a boat
Baby you’re my only reason

[Harry:]
If I didn’t have you there would be nothing left (nothing left)
The shell of a man who could never be his best (be his best)
If I didn’t have you, I’d never see the sun (see the sun)
You taught me how to be someone
Yeah

[Niall:]
All my life
You stood by me
When no one else was ever behind me
All these lights
They can’t blind me
With your love, nobody can drag me down

[Chorus:]
Nobody, nobody
Nobody can drag me down
Nobody, nobody
Nobody can drag me

[Liam:]
All my life
You stood by me
When no one else was ever behind me
All these lights
They can’t blind me
With your love, nobody can drag me down

[Niall:]
All my life
You stood by me
When no one else was ever behind me
All these lights
They can’t blind me
With your love, nobody can drag me down

[Chorus:]
Nobody, nobody
Nobody can drag me down
Nobody, nobody
Nobody can drag me down

Nobody, nobody
Nobody can drag me down
Nobody, nobody
Nobody can drag me down
