Ultimate Fan Army: Zquad or XO Crew?

Join the conversation and vote below

Zayn Malik and the Weeknd are alternative R&B's hottest acts out there, thanks to their fan armies. Zayn faced a lot of scrutiny from Directioners after he left 1D back in 2015, but by 2016 he built up his Zquad to stan his blossoming solo career. XO Crew is reportedly named after the Weeknd's song “XO/The Host," where he sings about ecstasy and oxycodon—and built up a fan army as an underground artist. Which fan army is the most mobilized? 📣

It couldn't have been any easy task leaving the biggest boy band in the world in 2015, but Zayn decided it was best for him. And his fans definitely supported him. While the Directioners were upset, many transitioned to fans of all the former 1D stars. 

Zayn didn't just change acts, he change sounds. He went from being a pop-rock act with 1D to an alternative R&B superstar as a solo artist. And it all paid off because the Zquad clearly supported "Pillowtalk" going #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in early 2016. Though Zquad has been supportive during Zayn's anxiety performing, he's been the up since the launch of his solo career, regardless.

The Weeknd's XO Crew is super loyal. He was a beloved underground R&B artist who built a following and then broke out into the mainstream. The XO Crew is everything to the Weeknd. It's not only his brand, but also his fans who stayed loyal even after his sound became more pop and R&B. Oh, and they are lit about his new tour!
