One Direction Then and Now

Where the boys are currently in life

After Zayn left the band on March 25, 2016, the four-piece put out the album Made In The A.M. and then took a year-long break. Rumors that One Direction is over have been all over social media since the beginning of their hiatus, and especially now that they have been doing their own things.

Niall Horan released his new single “This Town” on Thursday, Sept. 29. Harry Styles was featured in Another Man Magazine which released the same day as Niall’s single. Liam signed to Capitol Records as a solo artist earlier this year on July 21. While Louis Tomlinson is MIA from the social scene, former member Zayn Malik has collabed with Snakehips, M.I.A., and Kehlani. People sadly see very little performances from Malik as a solo artist because of his anxiety. Many students are still following the boys as they go their own directions.

“I’m following Harry on his path to be honest; I feel amazed by Harry’s new pictures,” sophomore Kayla Garcia said. “He is doing his own thing and not caring what anyone thinks. He actually let his own magazine out. He let wore outfits in different styles that were gorgeous and rocked them.”

Also Styles is going to be in the new movie Dunkirk coming out July 21, 2017.

“Harry is doing acting now, and I’m looking forward to that,” junior Kaitlin Welborn said. “I think it’s great that he’s reaching out into different fields of entertainment. Also I love Niall’s new song.”

Malik also has won One Direction fans hearts again as a solo artist.

“Zayn’s album is great because the production is virtually flawless, and you can’t deny he is an impressive vocalist,” junior Grant Rorem said. By Mia Robinson


Illuminate the Music Industry

Check out a review of Shawn Mendes’  second album

On Friday, Sept. 23, Shawn Mendes released his second album, Illuminate. This love-based album shows different pieces of Mendes’ life. He makes soul-pop music that relates to teens.

People can expect some tears to fall when listening to his album because he emotionally exposed himself through his music. The song, “Treat You Better”, shows the confident side of Mendes who treats a girl the right way. “Mercy” shows his vulnerability in relationships. The songs “Three Little Words”, “Bad Reputation”, and “Roses” all show the hardships of real relationships. Overall, the album is good and personal.

He will be coming to San Antonio for his tour, Illuminate The World Tour on Friday, July 21, 2017, so if students like the album, they better get those tickets. By Mia Robinson
