We were in for a right shocker yesterday morning when we woke up to discover One Direction released their single ‘Drag Me Down’ without any kind of warning and it seems like we weren’t the only ones, either.
It seems as though surprise releases are the way to go as ‘Drag Me Down’ is officially 1D’s most successful global single launch to date. Slaying again, Directioners!
In total, so far, the song has hit No.1 in a staggering 82 countries. If that isn’t amazing enough, ‘Drag Me Down’ was the top worldwide Twitter trend for over ten hours yesterday, with 22k tweets per minute being sent, and 3.2 million tweets by 3pm today. Directioners are seriously dominating right now.
How exciting is this?! We’re not sure if our bodies are totally ready or totally not ready at all for the music video, but will we even get a warning? Tweet us your excitement @maximumpop and keep the song on repeat because it is officially our summer choon.
