Today's Throwback Thursday is Louis Tomlinson performing Back to You with Bebe Rexha at the 2017 iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas. The pair performed twice during the two-day event.
Back to You was the second song Louis released since One Direction went on hiatus. Of the song, Louis said:
"This song stood out to me across everything I've written. It’s quite minimal in the production; it's something that, even melodically, is quite different to something I would normally do."
Back to You received Gold certification in Belgium, Canada, Italy, New Zealand, Poland, Sweden, and the UK. It received Platinum certification in Australia and the US.
"Back to You" was a collaboration between Louis, Bebe Rexha and British DJ and producer Digital Farm Animals. It was written by Louis Tomlinson, Digital Farm Animals, Pablo Bowman, Richard Boardman, and Sarah Blanchard. The production was by Digital Farm Animals and Tommy Danvers. The single was released on 21 July 2017. The music video premiered the same date.
Louis has been in the studio during his down time from X Factor finishing up his solo album, which will likely come out in 2019 with a single possibly dropping any time between now and the end of the year (with our best guess being near the X Factor Finale in December).
