WATCH: One Direction’s Video for ‘Drag Me Down’

Zayn Malik: 'Proud of My Boys'
Zayn Malik congratulates One Direction on new single.

British boy band, One Direction, premiered their music video for their single, “Drag Me Down,” early Friday morning on their VeVo YouTube channel.

The song (first released July 31 of this year) is the first single released by the band without former member, Zayn Malik, who left the remaining members, Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson, to strike out on his own.

Despite Malik’s absence, the single quickly became the fastest selling single on iTunes and then topped the most streamed song on Spotify shortly thereafter. “Drag me Down” is the first lead single from the group’s fifth album, which has yet to be released.

In the video, the four guys take on the roles of American astronauts in NASA, setting the scene for an otherworldly experience.
