Zayn Malik on One Direction's 'Drag Me Down': 'The new single is sick'
"Proud of my boys," Malik tweeted, adding that "the new single is sick."
"Drag Me Down" -- written by Jamie Scott, John Ryan and Julian Bunetta, and produced by Ryan and Bunetta -- hit the Internet earlier in the week, to the surprise of fans. The unexpected new track jumped to the top of the Billboard + Twitter Trending 140 shortly after its release. On July 31, One Direction performed the song live for the first time, in Indianapolis.
