“When you start with a band, you’ve got a fan base, and you want to make sure they like it — that’s the real goal,” Tomlinson told Billboard when talking about fans’ reactions to the single and what he expected it to be. “But the reaction has been broad and really great, and I’m really happy with that.”
The singer then went on to give a special shout out to his amazing fans.
“I’ve said it a million times, but the fans are just consistently incredible,” said Tomlinson.
Tomlinson may be taking his appreciation of his fans one step further on his solo album. The singer recently teased that one of his new songs will be dedicated to them! After a fan encouraged him on Twitter last month to write a song about his relationship with his fanbase, the singer replied, “Already done that one 😎.”
Tomlinson’s fans did vote him the top Solo Pop Star To Rule The Summer for 2017, so we know they LOVE and support the British singer. Plus, with tunes like “Back to You” and an upcoming solo album on its way, it’s no surprise that fans are rallying around Tomlinson — and we hope they always will!
