One Direction Releases ‘Best Song Ever’ Music Video; Zayn Malik Does Drag
One Direction finally released the music video for their latest hit “Best Song Ever” off their forthcoming album.
Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne have been getting their fans excited about the video on social media. “I was asleep… But the video for 'Best Song Ever' is on Vevo now! Go watch it six times and let us know what you think. Hope you like it .x,” tweeted Styles. Horan tweeted, “I hope u like the video! A lot of hard work went into it! well done @benwinston. smashed it mate!”
The “Best Song Ever” music video begins with Horan and Tomlinson playing Hollywood movie studio executives. Styles plays a slightly nerdy marketing guru, while Payne hams it up as a flamboyant choreographer. Most shocking, however, is Malik, who goes in convincing drag as a female assistant. After the in-character One Direction members pitch the singers playing themselves, the song finally begins.
What follows is a music video much like One Direction’s previous releases – the five young men mix up goofing off with tightly choreographed dance moves to the music.
"Best Song Ever" will appear on One Direction’s yet-to-be-titled third studio album that's expected to get a release date towards the end of 2013. The boy band’s 3D film, This Is Us, will hit theaters Aug. 29.
