The devastating news of Zayn Malik’s disassociation with popular British-Irish boyband One Direction has left fans (or “Directioners”) all around the world feeling purely broken-hearted. The question all fangirls are all asking themselves during this sad time in their lives is: Why would Zayn do this? Well, it might not necessarily be a bad thing. It’s time to look back to times when solo artists made a successful name for themselves after breaking away from their musical group or band.
There’s no doubt that Michael Jackson is an icon, and will be remembered for decades to come. But he wouldn’t have been who he was without the help of his brothers and their popular musical group ‘The Jackson 5,” started in 1964, and known for songs “ABC” and “I Want You Back.”
Afterwards, Jackson would go on to become one of the first artists to perfect dance moves such as the moonwalk and robot, and release the best-selling album of all time, “Thriller,” in 1982.
