Is One Direction’s hunkiest member heading in a solo direction? That seems like a real possibility now that he and R&B man John Legend have officially teamed up to make music together.
Harry Styles may be part of One Direction, but he isn’t limiting himself to the boy band, and news that he has teamed up with John Legend has Directioners worried that this side project could become something more. Especially because, according to John, he and Harry have been working on way more than just one ditty.
Harry Styles Making Music With John Legend
The musical duo has reportedly already written a track for US X Factor duo Alex & Sierra, and there’s plenty more to come too.
The two came together thanks to John’s manager, who ran into Harry at an event and knew that he was a fan of John’s. He agreed to set up a meeting and see if they could create some new music together. It was history after that! The next thing you know, “we got together for a few hours and wrote what I think is a really lovely song,” John told The Sun.
Rumors have swirled before about Harry leaving 1D, but really, this one song, which Harry worked on without his bandmates, may be the thing that gives Harry the confidence to blaze a new career path as a solo artist.
Harry Styles’ New Solo Career?
Especially because it sounds like Harry is moving quickly towards becoming an artist out on his own. After finishing up their writing session, John could only praise the British pop star. “I’d love to write with him again as he is a very great guy and very talented,” John said. “He has some really great lyrical ideas and is a very good songwriter.”
Good for Harry but eek! The more he steps out on his own, the more worried we get that he might leave One Direction altogether. Tell us what you think, Hollywoodlifers. Do you think Harry is heading towards a solo career?
