THP Fam, we are continually being blown away by the power of fandoms, and one fandom that often succeeds in showing their power is that of Louies, stans of Louis Tomlinson. If you were a Directioner back in the day, we bet that you remember the ‘No Control’ project. It was a project brought on by fans to get the b-side track ‘No Control’ charting, earn radio play, streams, and it succeeded. Now, Louies have launched a similar project, this time with Louis’ song ‘Defenceless.’
Thanks to the incredible power of Louies, ‘Defenceless’ has trended for days and has been earning spins on radio stations in over 17 countries. It went No. 1 on the World iTunes Song Chart, charted in over 50 countries, and is currently at No. 33 on Spotify’s Global Viral 50 Playlist. Plus, it’s the first b-side off of Walls to hit No. 1 worldwide. And honestly, that’s not even half of what the fans have achieved for this amazing song.
From hanging up flyers in their hometowns and cities to trending hashtags like #ProjectDefenceless and “NEVER BEEN SO DEFENCELESS,” as fellow fans ourselves, we are proud of all the hard work that Louies have been doing the past week. Louis himself took to Twitter to say his thanks to the fans, as did Joe Janiak, who helped co-write that fan-favorite track.
In case you haven’t streamed ‘Defenceless’ yet, what are you waiting for? Check out the song and see for yourself why fans are so dedicated to making it chart. With Louis’ velvet-like vocals, meaningful lyrics, and the 90s’ rock/indie vibes, we’re willing to bet you’ll be adding this song to your playlists at first listen. It’s a song that makes your soul feel good, and we can all use a feeling like that, especially now.
