Today marks the one year anniversary of Zayn Malik's announcement that he was done with One Direction leaving Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson to pick up the pieces and continue on as a foursome.
Ever since Zayn dropped this bombshell on the fandom, so much has happened to the boys. From releasing a new album to having babies and starting new relationships, nothing is the same today as it was 365 days ago!
Just because everyone is talking about Zayn's first ever solo album today, Mind of Mine, we thought it would be fun to take a look back on 1D's accomplishments without the Bradford bad boy – because there's a lot! These guys not only got through a hard time but succeeded just as usual!

The boys dropped their fifth album Made in the AM, but this was their first one without Zayn! Harry even said in an interview before it was released that he thinks this was their best album ever. Shade?
