Talking about their Billboard honor, Liam said, “It’s been incredible, but I think it’s a credit to the power of our fans more than anything. They’re an amazing force. We can’t believe, number one, that we played at Madison Square Garden the other night and that we accomplished something like that.”

To say thanks to their fans, 1D gave some of them an exclusive look at their upcoming music video for Kiss You during the Bring Me to 1D series. Based on the little clips that we get to see and the fans reactions, Kiss You is bound to be one of their best videos yet!
