One Direction: ‘What Makes You Beautiful’ (Premiere)

For those of you who don’t remember, One Direction is the boyband that finished third on the seventh series of UK’s The X Factor. Shortly after their loss, the boys signed a two million record contract with Syco. Since then Zayn, Niall, Harry, Louis, and Liam have been hard at work on developing their debut studio album due out before the end of the year. Today they stopped by BBC Radio 1 to premiere the lead single “What Makes You Beauitful” with Scott Mills. The upbeat pop track was produced and written by Savan Kotecha, Carl Falk, and Rami Yacoub who has crafted hits for artists such as: Britney Spears and the Backstreet Boys. “What Makes You Beautiful” is totally giving me the late 90’s bubble gum pop feel but I’m not complaining at all, I actually really like it. Be sure to check it out, Enjoy!

    The verses remind of The Feeling (who I like), and you’re right Jon; very 90s pop, but I LOVE it, and it’s perfect for their demographic as we grew up in the 90s – nothing better than nostalgia!

    I agree with the late 90s pop vibe, but I’m not complaining! It’s a fun song and puts me in a good mood. I never heard of these guys, but they remind me of hobbits in that pic heh 😛

    I can’t look at them, I’ll only listen! They’re so freakin attractive and they’re far from close to legal!

    Awesome song, love this kind of pop. They kind of look like an ambercrombie add which i think is good for them. And we know they can perform live (Xfactor is live right?). Looking forward to the debut performance.
