While Directioners worldwide are freaking out over One Direction's new single, "Drag Me Down," there's one person we've been waiting to hear from -- Zayn Malik. But don't worry, the former 1D member broke his silence and gave his former bandmates some love.

"Proud of my boys the new single is sick. Big love. :) x," Zayn tweeted on Saturday afternoon (Aug. 1).

Things haven't been smooth sailing amongst the guys since Zayn announced his departure from One Direction in March. But he hasn't been shy about showing his love for Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles and Niall Horan. At this year's Asian Awards, he made sure to give props to 1D before stepping off the stage with his trophy. One Direction also made sure to include Zayn in their acceptance speech at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards.

However since the new 1D song is out and Zayn has a new record deal, it really is a new era for Zayn, Liam, Harry, Louis and Niall. But that's okay because we love them no matter what.
