Transcript for One Direction Talks New Single Drop, Life After Zayn Malik
You know, so much has changed since the fresh-faced boy banders of one direction hit it big just a few short years ago, but one thing hasn't changed. They're still some of the most popular men on Earth, as amy row balk just found out at their live concert on gma. Reporter: They're at it again, one direction, melting the hearts of millions of fans and setting the internet ablaze with the unexpected new release of their new hit single "Drag me down." The way you introduced this single, you surprised your fans. How long had that been in the works? We'd never done that before. We wanted to drop it and see what happened. It's fun. It's almost aggressive. It's kind of a little dirty. Reporter: "Drag me down", now joins other massive hits like "Story of my life", and "Steal my girl." Last night, thousands of those die-hard fans camped outside new York City's central park, all to stand feet away from harry and his band mates. Their new single, "Drag me down", how is it different? We've slowly introduced our fans to different music over the years, and I feel like this is the place where we want to be now with our music and stuff. It's quite an eclectic sort of sound. Reporter: The new sound was a record breaker, according to spotify, "Drag me down", was streamed more than 4.75 million times on the day of its release. The song is part of a new album expected later this fall. There's different tracks on there, one that reminds me of toy story. But it's like a modern version of the "You've got a friend in me", song which I love. Reporter: It will be the first album since zayn malik left over four months ago. His departure left many of one-d fans wondering if they would stay together or split up. I think when any team loses a member the team bond a little stronger. We've got and little stronger, as long as he's happy doing what he's doing, we're happy too. Reporter: And louie will soon be a dad. I want to congratulate you on your upcoming fatherhood. Thank you. It's obviously a very exciting time. Reporter: The band credits all their success to their fans who are dying to know just one thing. We polled the crowd here and asked them for a couple questions to ask you. One that stood out to me was, what qualities do you look for in a woman? You're a single man. I like, I like someone that's cute. I like someone sweet, but, like doesn't know that they're hot, you know? I like someone quite chill, with pretty eyes. I suppose you want someone who doesn't take themselves too seriously. Reporter: For "Nightline," I'm Amy robach in New York. So what's your favorite one direction song and why? Head to our "Nightline" Facebook page and let us know.
