No doubt it’s been a rough day for #Directioners everywhere. With rumours swirling of the band’s hiatus becoming permanent, it’s taken all of our strength not to curl up in the fetal position and weep while listening to the boy band’s discography on loop. As of now reps are ensuring us that the boys are enjoying our hiatus.
The only thing left to do? Jam out.
Niall Horan, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne — even in trying times, your voices give us hope and strength. You’re perfect to us.
… That was a pun. Everyone laugh. If you’re not going to giggle at our puns or have run out of original 1D tunes to heal your breaking heart, we here at ANDPOP have got your back with some unforgettable coves done by the guys.
Here are 5 covers performed by One Direction to make everyone feel a bit better in this confusing time.
Wheatus’ “Teenage Dirtbag”
This 90s pop-punk tune has never sounded so angelic — please hold us.
Rihanna & Kanye West feat. Paul McCartney’s “FourFiveSeconds”
We love the addition of strings to this acoustic jam. Plus Harry and Louis SLAY their bits during the second half of the performance.
Jason Mraz’s “I’m Yours”
LOOK AT THEM!!! So young, so innocent, so adorable. They’ve come so far. ALL THE PROUD MAMA FEELS!!!
Teenage Kicks’ “One Way Or Another”
A cover with a purpose — to raise money for charity. The boy band never ceases to make us smile with their silly gags and goofy personalities.
Natalie Imbruglia’s “Torn”
The cover that started it all — WE’RE NOT CRYING. YOU ARE.!!!
