Get ready to blast «History,» because One Direction has dusted off their social media accounts in preparation for the boy band’s 10th anniversary.

«Tomorrow! You and me got a whole lot of history #10YearsOf1D,» the band shared on both Twitter and Instagram on Wednesday (July 22) alongside a simple black-and-white graphic that reads «10 Years of One Direction.»

Prior to the surprise post, the last tweet from the quintet’s official account came two years ago to celebrate their eighth anniversary. Meanwhile, the band’s last Instagram post was all the way back in May 2016, promoting their guest appearance on FOX’s Family Guy months after they had announced their indefinite hiatus.

While it’s unclear what surprises the 1D guys have in store for their legions of fans, rumors have been rumbling for quite some time about an impending reunion between the bandmates.

The evidence? Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson have all openly discussed the likelihood of getting the band back together in various interviews over the last few years. (In fact, just a few weeks ago Payne sent Directioners into a frenzy by posting a TikTok of a cryptic FaceTime call with Styles.)  Zayn Malik, meanwhile, has remained mum on the subject since leaving the group in early 2015, though his former bandmates all re-followed him on social media back in April as well.

Check out 1D’s 10th anniversary teaser below.

Liam Payne Says One Direction ‘Have Been Speaking’ About 10th Anniversary

No reason to freak out here, but Liam Payne confirmed on Monday night (April 13) that you’re not the only ones thinking about One Direction‘s upcoming 10th anniversary. Late Late Show host and friend of 1D James Corden reminded Payne that July marks the boy band’s tin anniversary, so he wondered if they had anything in store for fans who are cooped up in so many ways these days.

«Are there plans afoot for you guys to do anything to celebrate this milestone,» Corden asked from inside the makeshift studio in his Los Angeles garage. «I’m not allowed to say too much obviously, because I’d be giving it away. But we’ve been speaking a lot more at the moment,» Payne said from his lush London apartment.

In case you missed it, that was not a no. In fact, it was very close to a yes.

«I think that we’re all feeling that that 10 year is a very special moment,» Payne said, noting that at 26 he’s a decade into his music career already. He said he had a «beautiful» FaceTime with Niall Horan recently, who he hadn’t spoken to in a long time, adding that he’s also chatted with Louis Tomlinson. «Yeah, it’s been really nice, it’s a nice moment.»

Directioners lost their collective minds on Monday when Niall, Liam, Louis and Harry Styles followed former member Zayn Malik on Twitter again.

Payne and Alesso then performed their new single, «Midnight,» on TV for the first time, with Alesso rocking out on samplers and drum pads in the disco-lit backyard of his L.A. home and Payne giving a tour of his very nice-looking London pad as he was filmed by a drone hovering just inches from his face.

Watch the interview and performance below.

One Direction Is Following Zayn Malik on Twitter Again and Fans Are Losing It

No lie, we are also losing it.

In these rather dark times, One Direction fans have found a ray of light: The 1D guys are all following Zayn Malik on Twitter once again.

Eagle-eyed Directioners noticed that Niall HoranLiam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson — as well as the official One Direction Twitter account — are all now part of Malik’s 28.5 million followers. It’s unclear exactly when all of those follows happened (or when the guys had previously unfollowed Malik), but the development certainly has fans in a frenzy.

Hashtags like #OneDirectionReunion and a more timely #1DOnlineConcertStayAtHome have flooded Twitter recently, with several fans rounding up hints of a reunion beyond the guys re-following Malik, who left the group in 2015. Others are taking to Twitter to simply freak out: «I’m not sure what to do with myself,» one fan wrote in all caps, adding, «if this is real help me.»

Harry Styles Earns First Pop Songs No. 1 With ‘Adore You,’ Becomes Fourth One Direction Member to Reign

1D was already the only act with three soloists with Pop Songs leaders.

Harry Styles scores his first No. 1 on Billboard‘s Pop Songs radio airplay chart, as «Adore You» (released on Erskine/Columbia Records) ascends from No. 3 to No. 1 on the list dated April 11.

Of his three prior solo entries, he’d hit a No. 12 high with his first, «Sign of the Times,» in 2017.

Meanwhile, Styles becomes the fourth member of One Direction to have topped Pop Songs, extending the group’s record as the only act with more than two members with solo No. 1s.

Here’s a look at all the Pop Songs No. 1 by members of One Direction. (Zayn departed the group, which is currently on hiatus, in 2015.)

Harry Styles
«Adore You,» one week to-date, April 11, 2020

Liam Payne
«Strip That Down,» featuring Quavo; two weeks, beginning Oct. 14, 2017

Niall Horan
«Slow Hands,» one week, Oct. 7, 2017

«Pillowtalk,» two weeks, beginning May 7, 2016

(The Pop Songs chart, which began in 1992, measures total weekly plays, as tabulated by Nielsen Music/MRC Data, among its reporting panel of 169 mainstream top 40 stations.)

As a group, One Direction tallied 13 Pop Songs entries, in 2012-16, including four top 10s: debut smash «What Makes You Beautiful» (No. 3, 2012); «Story of My Life» (No. 4, 2014); «Drag Me Down» (No. 6, 2015); and «Perfect» (No. 10, 2016).

Only two other groups each feature even two soloists with Pop Songs No. 1s: Fifth Harmony and Destiny’s Child. 5H’s Camila Cabello has achieved four leaders and Normani has notched one, while the group also earned one: «Work From Home,» featuring Ty Dolla $ign, in 2016.

Apart from Destiny’s Child, Beyoncé has banked six solo Pop Songs No. 1s and Kelly Rowland has scored one. The act collected two No. 1s: «Jumpin’, Jumpin’ » and «Independent Women Part 1,» in 2000-01.

Meanwhile, Louis Tomlinson could make for a clean sweep as far as One Direction members topping Pop Songs. So far, he’s reached a No. 25 high with «Back to You,» featuring Bebe Rexha and Digital Farm Animals, in 2017. Late last year, he tallied his first Pop Songs entry without any accompanying acts: «We Made It» debuted in December and reached No. 32 in January.
