One Direction are still one of the best boybands of all time so even though there's no new music from Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan and Zayn Malik, we can still appreciate their top tunes - here’s a full list of 1D’s albums.

One Direction fans will more than agree with us when we say the boys produced some of the best albums and as it doesn't look likely we'll see any new music from them as a five-piece for a while, we couldn't help but reminisce over their old albums.

After we celebrated a whole decade of Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan and Zayn Malik formed on the X Factor, we took a look back at all of the music they’ve ever made together and it was just as amazing as we remembered.\

Will One Direction reunite in 2022?

The boys had been working hard to come out with tunes like ‘Live While We’re Young’ and the most heartfelt song that still gets us in our feels, ‘Little Things’.

Made in the A.M.
