While Niall Horan called it one of their "favorite songs," he also explained some special fan involvement that just takes it totally next level.
Niall took to Twitter to give a shout out to the fandom, explaining they "brought some fans to the studio to record the chorus," adding, "so this song is really YOURS."
How lucky are the fans who got to be a part of "History"? We'd be bubbling with jealousy if we weren't too busy listening to the song on repeat.
Meanwhile, Liam Payne told Entertainment Weekly: "more than anything, the song is about the way the fans and everyone have created this massive thing - One Direction - over the past five years. Out of ['History'] comes a little bit of closure for this chapter of One Direction."
He added, "It's really great because obviously that song is mainly about the fans and what they've done; I think it was important that they were a part of it, to close the album."
