During the early days of One Direction’s popularity following their appearance on “The X Factor,” Louis Tomlinson, a musician and group member, expressed a sense of dominance.

He has always been open about his time with the well-known band, never shying away from bringing it up in public.

Louis, Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan, and Liam Payne met on a British reality competition show in 2010, and their path to international fame began.

As the weeks passed, it became clear that these young men were onto something special, and the band’s fan base grew.

Even though they did not win “The X Factor,” their achievements are remembered as some of the most incredible ever seen, making them a legendary group.

Louis, a 31-year-old Doncaster-born singer-songwriter and former boy band member spoke candidly about his experiences with the group in a teaser trailer for his new documentary, “All of Those Voices,” according to Billboard.

He revealed:

“I used to think it would be great to have a boyband that didn’t just get songs written for them – but instead created something new.”

“Maybe we should be writing our own songs, I could feel stuff bubbling for us, I could see that we’d got people’s attention.”

The dad-of-one further explained:

“I realized that we might be able to make a few of our own decisions and that was the first moment in my One Direction career that I felt ownership of what we were doing.”

Louis Tomlinson described his experience as a member of one of the world’s biggest boybands, describing how singing a One Direction song made him feel more “powerful.”

“It was like I was taking back control.”

Louis, the band’s eldest member, claimed he felt helpless and unable to influence his position for the first two and a half years.

When asked what he was most proud of as a band member, Louis said he was most proud of having the most songwriting credits in the band’s history.

He also enthusiastically admitted that this made him feel important to the band, which was what he desired.

The “Walls” hitmaker will tell fans about his incredible journey from group member to solo artist.

Louis Tomlinson will explain his accomplishments in producing some of the band’s most popular songs, including “No Control,” “Perfect,” “Diana,” “Strong,” “Night Changes,” and many more, before the band’s disbandment in 2016.

One Direction’s net worth is estimated to be between $150 million and $200 million, based on revenue from album sales, concerts, merchandise, and endorsement deals.

“All of Those Voices” will be released worldwide on March 22.
