One Direction Collaborations [PHOTOS]
The British Boy Band, One Direction, is definitely on a roll.
From a million Twitter followers to hoards of fan girls at every turn, the five simple boys that started out from "X-Factor" UK are proving to be the next big thing. Now, there's new music to be written on the cards and Zayn Malik, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne and Niall Horan are working with a few big names in the industry in preparation for it.
It is all thanks to Simon Cowell that the boys of One Direction had even come to be. Plus, if not for the boys losing streak at "X-Factor" UK, then "Directioners" would have nothing to root for today. Apart from selling out concerts and making even more girls fall head over heels for them, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Harry Style are also focusing on the music.
Big names are being set to collaborate with the boys of which include Canadian Crooner, Justin Bieber and British singer, Ed Sheeran. In an interview with Justin Bieber, the 18-year old is hyped about the collaboration and had nothing but great things to say about the boys.
"The One Direction guys are great. We have a lot of fun whenever we hang out. They came over to my house and we were just chilling out around the pool and listening to music," said Bieber in an interview with BBC Radio
"We were talking about me collaborating with them on a song on their next album. It's gonna be great."
Keeping it close to their UK blood, the boys formed a British brotherhood with Ed Sheeran. The singer is also set to collaborate with the boys plus even help out with their follow-up album to "Up All Night".
"I'm going into the studio in August to produce the tracks for them. I won't feature on the tracks though. There's definitely a divide in genre," explained Sheeran.
According to the web tabloid, Daily Star, the boys' next album will feature two amazing songs written by Ed Sheeran when he was only 17 years of age.
"I have a tune that I think they're recording for their album that I wrote. They're really cool guys. If you take the boyband element out of it, they're just teenage dudes," said Sheeran to XFM.
Other collaborators said to be working with the boys are Kyle Falconer, Boyce Avenue and Mika. All these big names are enough to make "Directioners" antsy and hyped for One Direction's upcoming album.
