One Direction Replacements? Forever In Your Mind Release Debut Album

Is it possible that One Direction could have another replacement claim since they will lose their spot at the top because they are on vacation?

In the world of One Direction, there have been some strange replacements for the normal news about their new music or live performances, but the end of June and first of July have proven to have some of the most interesting headlines yet with news that Forever In Your Mind is releasing their first album.

Will the new One Direction be Forever In Your Mind or one of the other proposed replacements such as 5SOS, Fifth Harmony, or Little Mix?

Of course, One Direction is the type of band that lots of people want to try to replace because they have repeatedly been voted worldwide as “the best” by fans. For example, BBC published an article on July 1 that said One Direction was named as the “best live act” by the O2 Arena Silver Clef Awards.

In fact, One Direction beat out Adele or Ed Sheeran much to the surprise of everyone because, for instance, Little Mix won an award for “best-selling U.K. arena tour” of 2016 earlier in the year, according to Digital Spy.

Sadly, these types of awards might not be on the table for One Direction in 2017 because they are not touring or making new music. This means that One Direction could easily be replaced, and there are a long list of references in the media made by bands that are ready to take their place at the top.

For example, music fans have started voting for Fifth Harmony instead of One Direction which is a strong indicator they will replace 1D in 2016, as previously reported by the Inquisitr.

There are also direct efforts by Simon Cowell to replace One Direction, and he is rumored to be using X Factor to do it. According to a Daily Mail report from August 27, 2015, “fans of the show can expect to see some exciting groups to rival One Direction.”

They go on to quote Cheryl Fernandez-Versini stating the following about the fate of One Direction.

“There are some really fantastic groups this year actually. There are some boybands… replacing One Direction, I’m not so sure about but there’s definitely some potential coming your way. Keep your eyes open, it depends who you’re looking for.”

There were also speculations around September 17, 2015, that One Direction would be replaced by 5SOS, according to Movie News Guide.

Adding to this list of potential One Direction replacements is the band Forever In Your Mind that has released a debut EP titled FIYM.

On June 30, Forever In Your Mind premiered a video on Teen Vogue called “Enough About Me,” and will play a venue familiar to One Direction: ABC’s Good Morning America, on July 4.

Also like One Direction, in the past, Forever In Your Mind has performed in concerts with Demi Lovato, Fifth Harmony, Jesse McCartney, and Bea Miller.

While the jury is still out about which musicians will replace One Direction in the charts and awards over the next year, what might be an interesting replacement for One Direction is teachers covering their songs.

According to a June 30 report from Crawley Observer, the teachers wanted to create a video “tribute” to the Year 13 graduates, and One Direction’s song “History” was their vehicle.

If there is one story to watch about One Direction replacements, it might be the people 1D tweet about. For example, Liam Payne tweeted about Luav, according to an April 13 report from The Aquarian.

Other name drops on social media by One Direction in the recent past have included Hey Violet, Drake, Hometown, Jamie Scott, Professor Green, Ady Suleiman, and Diplo.
