One Direction was one of the most prominent boy bands of their time. The band’s spark has not dimmed a bit despite the end of the singers’ venture together. They all have built successful careers outside the band, but who is the wealthiest star?
“One Direction”: Who Is The Richest?
Over ten years ago, they became famous worldwide through “The X-Factor”. We’re talking about the boy band “One Direction”. By 2015, the band consisted of Niall, Liam, Harry, Louis and Zayn. Then Zayn Malik suddenly left “One Direction”. About a year later, the band announced an indefinite hiatus. A friend of the boys has now revealed that a “One Direction” comeback could be likely in 2022. After many years of success, fans wonder: what assets do the musicians have in their accounts?
Outside of 1D, Louis Tomlinson released his debut solo album Walls, featuring the singles Walls, Two of Us, Kill My Mind, We Made It and Don’t Let It Break Your Heart. The singer has also teamed up to collaborate with musician Steve Aoki and singer Bebe Rexha. The tracks “Just Hold On” and “Back To You” was dropped. Louis Tomlinson’s net worth has skyrocketed over the years. It should be about 70 million US dollars.
Since his solo career, Niall Horan has been signed to Capitol Records and has released two albums. “Flicker” in 2017 and “Heartbreak Weather” in 2020. “Slow Hands” was the most successful song from “Flicker”, and from the album “Heartbreak Weather”, it was the track “Nice To Meet Ya”, which trended in for weeks the music charts. Niall Horan’s net worth is also estimated to be approximately $70 million.
Liam Payne also has a net worth of approximately $70 million. He released a solo album titled LP1 in 2019. But he also writes songs for others and has dropped some successful song collaborations. For example, remember the killer track “For You” with Rita Ora. The 29-year-old is also a regular model, for example, for the fashion company Hugo Boss.
Although Zayn Malik left the band early, his net worth is higher than his former colleagues. The 28-year-old is said to have about 75 million US dollars in his account. In 2016, “Pillowtalk” was the track to launch his solo music career. While shooting the music video, Zayn also got to know Gigi Hadid better. There was a spark between the two. They had an on-off relationship for years and even had a child together in September 2020. In 2018 he dropped his second album, and his last single was released in January 2021.
At the top of the podium, we have Mr Harry Styles. His solo career is the most successful of all the “One Direction” members. His album “Fine Line” dropped in December 2019 and stayed on the charts for over 102 weeks. The most famous song releases are “Adore You”, “Golden” and “Watermelon Sugar”. Harry even got a Grammy for “Fine Line” approximately $80 million.
