Sometimes it's hard to be in a band. And it can be even harder to go it on your own! There are so many solo artists who used to be in bands, but left to do their own thang. However, not all who go solo do very well after the band life. While some crash and burn, there are those who make us forget that they were even IN a band! Zayn (formerly of One Direction) tweeted the track list for his first solo album in the works, and the fangirls almost died!

The list looks promising, and his new single is doing well, but will it be a one-time kind of thing, or will he makes us say, "One Direction, who!?" Only time will tell, but here are of those who ditched the band, rocked the world solo, and did it WELL! Good luck Zayn, hopefully you'll be on this list some day!
