Why should one bet on One Direction this spring? The popular British boys band has three strong reasons to reunite this year and you can benefit from this decision too. In addition, the chance that Styles, Horan, Tomlison, and Payne will perform at some big festivals in 2021 is really big.
Even if you are far from the modern music industry, you should have heard about One Direction. This British boys band formed in 2010 at the British X-Factor, where all its members initially participated separately. Although boys finished 3rd in the competition, they quickly gained worldwide popularity. Once their song “Forever Young” leaked onto the Internet, One Direction was signed to a record label and started working on the debut album that made them “new Backstreet Boys”.
On the peak of the band’s success, one of the members quit One Direction. In 2015, Zayn Malik announced his split from Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, and Niall Horan. This was the first shot for fans that resulted in the band’s hiatus one year later. All 4 members of the band decided to develop their solo careers, but then rumors about their reunion appeared. Together with 1xBet Sportsbook, we will give 3 strong reasons to bet on One Direction to be back on stage.
Solo careers of band members didn’t meet expectations
The first reason to bet on One Direction to reappear as a band is the modest success of their solo careers. Can you remember any case when all members of the music group were equally successful? Yes, there was Justin Timberlake from ‘NSync and Beyonce from Destinys Childs, but where are their bandmates? The last example of a successful solo career from a former band member is Camila Cabello, who left Fifth Harmony in 2016. At the same time, her colleagues failed to reach her level even close.
When speaking about One Direction members’ career, the situation is even worse. None of the singers is as successful as his colleagues from other bands. When Malik left the group in 2015, he managed to hit the charts with his debut single “Pillow Talk” but disappeared as quickly as he got there. The next One Direction’s lead Harry Styles recorded two solo albums and both hit the mark but didn’t make him a new pop prince. The other members of the boy’s band – Payne, Tomlinson, and Horan – had modest success in the US and UK charts. Therefore, suggestions about the band’s reunion make sense, so you better learn how to bet on celebrities and follow One Direction bets at 1xBet.
Styles, Horan, Payne, and Tomlinson didn’t split forever
Another reason to suggest that the reform of One Direction is round the corner is the official status of the band. The group didn’t split like Oasis with feud and scandals; the boys just decided to try their skills in solo. At the 2017 Brit Awards, Liam Payne received an award for 1D’s “History” as the Video of the Year. He accepted the prize on behalf of the band, though all its members have already released their debut solo singles. It proved that Styles, Horan, Payne, and Tomlinson chose a different way of “splitting” than Noel and Liam Gallagher from Oasis. Therefore, there’s nothing holding them from performing together at Glastonbury 2021 or other music events. If you also think so, bet on boys to headline the festival next year.
Bet on One Direction to reunite for the previous success
Finally, a successful example of Pussycat Dolls’ reunion proved that sometimes more is better than one. The pop band was back in 2020 with the new song “React”, which got rave reviews from critics and fans. Girls even announced a tour, but the plans for 2020 were canceled and concerts were postponed.
One Direction can use their colleagues’ example as a formula for their own success. As a band, they reached much more than solo artists as for now. Their band is the most awarded ever at Teen Choice Awards with 28 wins out of 31 nominations. 1D also received many other prizes like Brits, AMAs, and VMAs. They topped the UK music charts several times and reached the top-3 in Billboard Hot 100 as well. So, bet on One Direction at online sportsbooks in Ireland and the UK with 1.91 odds and wait for them to reform this year.
