One Direction has reportedly grossed more than £3million in just one year, while Oasis has made £2million, despite both bands split years ago.
The boy band – made up of Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, Liam Payne and Zayn Malik – shared a £3.2million cash payout last year, according to The Sun.
Each member of the band took home £640,000 from the impressive annual earnings, according to financial documents obtained from the release.

The amazing earnings came despite the fact that the band hasn’t released any new music since 2015, when they released their fifth album Made in the AM, prior to the group’s hiatus in January 2016.
One Direction impressively beat Oasis by more than £1million in revenue as the 1990s rock band reportedly earned £2million last year.
Brothers Noel and Liam Gallagher were said to be the only members in the books, allowing them to both reportedly take home £1million.
Oasis split abruptly in 2009 following Noel’s exit 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.
Although the band has only released one track in the 13 years since their split, they still rake in huge revenues from downloads and streams of their hits.
Speaking of numbers, 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 paid every time someone buys, downloads or streams their songs.
“Although there hasn’t been anything new for years, buys are still high.”
MailOnline has reached out to representatives from One Direction, Noel and Liam for comment.
It comes after Louis Tomlinson said he thought it would be “a shame” if he and his One Direction bandmates never reunited.

The 30-year-old singer was one-fifth of the group that first rose to fame with 2010’s The X Factor and went on to become one of the highest-grossing boy bands of all time.
Speaking about Lorraine on ITV last month, Louis opened up about the prospect of a reunion and also looked back on the group’s rise to fame.
When asked if we could get back together, he said: “One day there will be a lot of moving parts but it would be a shame if we didn’t. Hopefully.’

One Direction consisted of Louis, Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan and Liam Payne.
Zayn left the group in early 2015 and the remaining four released another album – Made In The AM – before going their separate ways.
Of the group’s success, Louis said: “It’s easier now to look inside from the outside, it’s been a crazy time but amazing to go through with other people. It would have been scary to go through it alone at that age.
