Next month, One Direction completes 10 years since the boyband was formed in The X Factor. In five years, 1D became incredibly popular and stamped their mark on the globe with five chart-topping albums. However, after Zayn Malik shockingly quit One Direction in 2015, the remaining members - Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan went on an indefinite hiatus and embarked on their individual journeys. All five members jumped into their solo careers which proved to be a successful move for each of them.

For a debut to be extremely successful, the solo artist's first single usually does the trick. For Harry, the drastic shift from a boyband singer to a solo singer was seen in his debut single, Sign of the Times, which ushered in the rock era for the eccentric, larger than life musician. To talk numbers, Sign of the Times earned the #4 spot in the Billboard Hot 100 and the music video has 617 million views and counting.

Then we have Liam, whose debut single, Strip That Down ft. Quavo, became a staple at clubs because of it's dance-inducing beats. Strip That Down charted at #10 on Billboard Hot 100 while the music video has 321 million views and counting.

Next up, we have Louis who collaborated with Steve Aoki for his debut single, Just Hold On, and tried a successful hand at EDM. While Back To You ft. Bebe Rehxa is Tomlinson's highest-charting song on Billboard Hot 100 at #40, Just Hold On claimed the #52 spot. Just Hold On's music video has 39 million views and counting.

Niall showed us just how talented he is with his debut single, This Town, that focused heavily on his soulful vocals. While Slow Hands is Horan's highest-charting song on Billboard Hot 100 at #11, #ThisTown earned the #20 spot. There isn't an official music video for This Town, but the lyric video has 41 million views and counting.

Finally, we have Zayn, who was the first 1D member to ride solo and his debut single, Pillowtalk, managed to make history as the addictive track claimed the #1 spot on Billboard Hot 100 which is something even One Direction songs as a collective could not achieve (1D's highest-charting single was Best Song Ever at #2). Pillowtalk's music video, which features Malik's girlfriend Gigi Hadid, has 975 million views and counting.

Toxic solo harries, please stop comparing the boys. They are happy doing what they love. Go drool over harry somewhere else.

This poll is absolutely useless! What good is going to come from ranking their solo careers? All of their solo music is totally different. It doesn't make sense to compare their music at all. If you enjoy someone's music then listen to it. If you don't then don't then just simply don't listen to their music!! There is no reason to drag them just because their music is not your type of music. Please understand that the boys are happy doing what they love. Comparing them is only going to create unnecessary drama.

This poll is useless. It's already clear in YouTube global viewers that: 1. Pillow talk viewed 976 million 2. Sign of times viewed 618 million Heck, even Zayn Malik's dusk till down reach 1.3 billion viewers. Not even any of one direction songs ever surpass that one single song of Zayn Malik dusk till Dawn. So stop debating thing that's already clear. That's stupid.

There's more Louis chat in the comments that I expected. Considering he's the one with the biggest grudge against Zayn. Wish he'd just get over it.

Anonymous 11 months ago

What do you mean? Please explain. By the way, Zayn and Louis were best friends. Like all best friends, they had a falling out. Having a falling out is natural and is completely understandable. Louis held a grudge against Zayn because he was not there for him when Louis needed him the most (when jay passed). It is very clear now that they don't talk, but at they same time they are both trying their best to be friends again. Everything takes time. Also the fight was both Louis and Zayn's fault. So they both have grudges against each other. Not only Louis. Please understand that. :) Sending all the love! Hope you are doing well!!

Why do you want Harry to ditch the pearls? He seems happy wearing them. Why is what he is wearing affecting you? I don't want to come off as rude....but there was no reason for you to comment this. The poll was not about this at all. Please understand. Hope you are doing well...tpwk
