Rami Yacoub and Carl Falk are the co-writers of the Take Me Home Album. They contemplate how the music album acts as the cornerstone of the band members’ solo music promotion.

2012 was a groundbreaking year for the biggest hits, artists, and cultural movements in pop music. Before 2010, the screaming fanatics of boy bands were almost barren. Forerunners like NSYNC and Backstreet Boys broke up and were not in the news anymore.

One Direction members – Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, and Louis Tomlinson, individually auditioned on The X Factor (U.K.). They were given the task of practicing and performing covers in a group by sharing the spotlight. And just within a few months, they successfully attracted millions of audience, thereby increasing their fan following.

Simon Cowell formed one Direction, and he also signed them up with the largest record label – Syco Records. The five band members and other songwriters and pop producers released their debut album Up All Night in 2011.

Most of the songs of the album were inspired by melody music producers. Singers Rami Yacoub, Carl Falk, and Savan Kotecha helped make the album’s hit song What Makes You Beautiful. This trio has previously worked with boy bands like Westlife, Backstreet Boys, and NSYNC. Kelly Clarkson, Jamie Scott, and Steve Mac also had outstanding contributions to the album.

All the crew members also participated gladly in their second album, Take Me Home, in 2012. And that is when Zayn, Harry, Liam, Louis, and Niall’s music interests escalated. They learned to write songs on their own, play instruments and produce melody music.

Songwriter Yacoub explains that their only motivation to set the five together was to craft the finest pop music. However, the individual members of One Direction were thirsty to craft their songs. Falk says that there was an excellent probability of the five members to explore entirely new aspects.

Songs Last First Kiss and Back for You from the album Take Me Home had song credits of all five. After their breakout in 2012, the boy band found themselves rewriting their script. Niall Horan would spend almost the entire day learning the guitar from Falk. At the same time, Liam Payne studied the whole process of creation. On the other hand, Harry Styles grew interested in learning how to write songs.

Falk and Yacoub recall that songs were being brought to them just a decade ago. But now, they have their unique musical visions. Horan has wholly embraced the roots of being an individual songwriter. Malik also gained popularity when he collaborated with Timbaland and Kehlani.

However, Tomlinson and Payne took some time to carve their personal space in the music industry. And lastly, Harry Styles gained the ultimate momentum to become the breakout star of One Direction.

Falk says that their songs will carry on their legacy as a boy band. Repenting, he adds, it becomes demanding to find them as an actual boy band.
