The One Direction star Louis Tomlinson (finally) dropped his premiere solo album Walls late Thursday night. And the fandom world of past Directioners hasn’t been the same since then.
The release immediately began trending with over 600,000 tweets about it and sending it straight to the top of the worldwide iTunes album chart.
Louis posted a screenshot of the feat on Instagram, calling it the “proudest moment of my career to date. Can’t believe it.”

The whole thing is basically Louis showing the world that he too can create single success for himself, alongside his other bandmates who have gone on to create music. Louis was the last of the five lads to release a solo album.
Louis had previously released some singles, but with the release of a full album fans are going crazy. And, for good reason. I mean, listen to his song below:
Despite the drama behind One Direction’s split in 2015 and many of the boys being very authentic about the disputes between the boys, Louis is quick to point out he doesn’t want any beef with any of the boys.
In a new interview with Rolling Stone, he says, “I [expletive] love the boys, and I love everything we’ve done together. And I still miss my time with them. I think any of the boys would be lying if they said otherwise.”
Louis said that whenever a band breaks up and separate members begin to talk trash on the other mates, it isn’t authentic — it’s only for attention. But, he is ready to part ways with the band. And his new music is a totally different style than what his Directioners are used to.
The album brings more of a indie-rock vibe and distinguishes his voice from the pop-styled music he’s been accustomed to.
And, despite the potential disappointment from fans, it looks like the boys will continue on their separate paths.
“And we do all have a different range of inspiration — that’s what made it interesting, both on a personality level and on a music level,” Tomlinson says. “I think we’re all making really [expletive] good music as well.”
