WATCH: LOUIS TOMLINSON, STEVE AOKI Talk About How "Just Hold On" Came Together

Believe it or not, it was actually Louis Tomlinson who brought the idea working together to Steve Aoki.  In an interview with The Late Late Show host James Corden, the One Direction member revealed how he slid into the Steve's DMs after seeing the American DJ-producer in one show.

“I was on holiday with my friends, actually, lad’s trip in Vegas, livin’ the dream,” Louis recounts. “And we happened to go watch one of Steve’s shows. It was unbelievable. And after the night out, maybe a little bit tipsy, I sent Steve a message saying, ‘Maybe we should work together.'”

This exchange gave birth to their first-ever EDM collaboration, "Just Hold On," the 25-year-old's first solo single since the 1D hiatus.
