One Direction Reportedly Taking A Hiatus in 2016 To Pursue Solo Projects


By ISABELLE CHAPMAN

Just months after singer Zayn Malik left the most popular boy band on Earth, The Sun is reporting that the four remaining members will go their separate ways in March to pursue solo endeavors.

"It is definitely not a split and they fully intend to get back together at some time in the future," a source allegedly told the British publication.

This news comes after a big year for the band -- their single "Drag Me Down" recently broke a major Spotify record for most streamed track in one day, with 4.75 million streams around the world.

Their album, "Four," which was released last November, was an international hit.
