Listen To This: One Direction Drops First Single Without Zayn Called “Drag Me Down”

Zayn Malik might have just signed a solo record deal with RCA, but One Direction isn’t letting anyone drag them down…as they proved by dropping this single by surprise, appropriately entitled “Drag Me Down.” The foursome released the new track in the early morning hours on Friday, but we’ve been listening to it on repeat since we woke up. Listen below!

Our verdict? Pretty catchy, and we’re getting a Bruno Mars vibe that we’re digging.

Here are the lyrics for those Directioners already trying to sing along:

I’ve got fire for a heart, I’m not scared of the dark
You’ve never seen it look so easy
I got a river for a soul and baby you’re a bow
Baby, you’re my only reason

If I didn’t have you there would be nothing left
A shell of a man that could never be his best
If I didn’t have you I’d never see the sun
You taught me how to be someone, yeah

All my life you stood by me when no one else was ever behind me
All these lights that can’t blind me
With your love, nobody can drag me down
All my life you stood by me when no one else was ever behind me
All these lights that can’t blind me
With your love, nobody can drag me down

Nobody, nobody
Can drag me down
Nobody, nobody
Can drag me down

I’ve got fire for a heart, I’m not scared of the dark
You’ve never seen it look so easy
I got a river for a soul and baby you’re a bow
And baby you’re my only reason

If I didn’t have you there would be nothing left
A shell of a man who could never be his best
If I didn’t have you I’d never see the sun
You taught me how to be someone, yeah

All my life you stood by me when no one else was ever behind me
All these lights that can’t blind me
With your love, nobody can drag me down
But you’re love, nobody can drag me down

One Direction is currently touring the U.S. before heading back to the U.K. for another leg of the tour. Fans can expect their fifth studio album this November.
