One Direction reportedly raked in more than £3million in just one year while Oasis earned £2million, despite both bands having parted ways years previously.

The boyband – made up of Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, Liam Payne and Zayn Malik – shared a cash payout of £3.2million last year, according to The Sun.

Each member of the band took home £640,000 from the impressive annual earnings, according to financial documents seen by the publication.

The staggering earnings came despite the fact that the band have not released new music since 2015, when they released their fifth album Made in the A.M., before the group’s hiatus in January 2016.

One Direction impressively beat Oasis by more than £1million in their earnings, as the 1990s rock band reportedly made £2million over the past year.

Brothers Noel and Liam Gallagher were said to be the only members on the books, leaving them both with £1million to take home, according to reports.

Oasis abruptly split up in 2009 after the departure of Noel and their last single before their split was Falling Down.

In 2020, Noel released a previously unheard Oasis song, Don’t Stop, but Liam reacted furiously at the time as the track didn’t feature him or guitarist Paul Arthurs, known as Bonehead.

Despite only releasing one track in the 13 years since their break-up, the band are still raking in huge cash earnings from downloads and streams of their hit tracks. 

Speaking of the figures, a source told The Sun: ‘One Direction and Oasis will continue to make money for years to come thanks to the continued popularity of their music.

‘They get money every time someone buys, downloads or streams their songs.

‘Even though there’s been nothing new for years, the purchases are still high.’

MailOnline has contacted representatives of One Direction, Noel and Liam for comment.

It comes after Louis Tomlinson said he thinks it ‘would be a shame’ if he and his fellow One Direction bandmates never reunite.

The singer, 30, was one-fifth of the group who first found fame on The X Factor in 2010 and went on to become one of the most successful boybands ever.

Speaking Lorraine on ITV last month, Louis discussed the prospect of the reunion and also looked back on the group’s rise to fame.

Asked about getting back together, he said: ‘One day, there’s a lot of moving parts but it would be a shame if we didn’t. I hope so.’

One Direction was made up of Louis, Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan and Liam Payne.

Zayn left the group in early 2015 with the remaining four releasing another album – Made In The A.M. – before they went their separate ways.

Speaking about the group’s success, Louis said: ‘It’s easier to see now from the outside looking in, it was a crazy time but amazing to go through with other people. It would have been scary to go through it alone at that age.’
