One Direction's First Post-Zayn Song "Drag Me Down" Is the New Song of Summer

Excuse us while we listen to this on repeat forever

Sadie Gennis

All the haters who said One Direction was over after Zayn Malik announced his exit from the boy band in March can get to stepping, because the group's new single is three minutes of pop perfection.

"Drag Me Down," which was released without any promotion overnight on Friday, is the first song off of One Direction's upcoming fifth album, due for release in November. The single immediately began trending on Twitter worldwide and we completely understand why. "Drag Me Down" is the perfect pop rock anthem to get us through the remaining weeks of summer!

Excuse us while we listen to this on repeat for the rest of our lives.
