Louis Tomlinson’s solo pressure

Los Angeles, Feb 26 (IANS) Former One Direction band member Louis Tomlinson says he felt the pressure while releasing his first solo single.

The singer has collaborated with DJ Steve Aoki for his solo song “Just hold on”. He said he was worried about how his fans would react, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

“There’s pressure for any artiste when they release new music and the idea is the song is for the fans to a certain degree and it’s for them to enjoy it,” Tomlinson said on a radio channel.

“I think there’s also a sense of relief because you’re going through a process of choosing between different songs and once you’ve picked it, it feels good.

“But definitely you feel the pressure and that’s why the support that we’ve had throughout this single has just been absolutely incredible. I mean we’ve been blown away,” he added.

Tomlinson also said he has been incredibly nervous before his performances on the song.

“Of course I get nervous. Yeah absolutely. In so many ways it feels like I’m kind of going through the process and starting again. I’ve been really nervous about these performances,” he said.
