Liam Payne Misses One Direction Bandmates Ahead Of 1 Billion ‘What Makes You Beautiful’ Streams

Liam Payne is showing appreciation for his boy band days. The 29-year-old singer took to his Instagram on Wednesday to share about an upcoming major milestone for him and his One Direction bandmates. “Wow I just got told we’re about to make a billion streams on wmyb! Never in the making of this song so early in our career did I think I would be looking at those numbers what an achievement boys! I’m so lucky not only to share this with you but also this amazing fanbase everyday I’m learning about myself and what was all of this for but now when I listen back and think of the power we all had including you as a fanbase I’m so happy that for 5 years we made such a great soundtrack to life for myself and everyone who got to listen sharing laughter pain and everything in between miss you boys,” he captioned the post. One Direction, which consisted of Liam, Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson, broke up in 2015 after Zayn announced he had left the band that year.
