Harry Styles has thrown down the gauntlet and told pals that he’s sure he will have a more successful solo career and first single than Zayn Malik, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned.
It’s going to get competitive! Harry Styles, 21, isn’t afraid of taking on Zayn Malik, 23, when it comes to the music charts. In fact, he’s confided in pals that he’s confident he can blow his former 1D bandmate’s solo success “out of the water” with his own solo material, HollywoodLife.com can EXCLUSIVELY reveal.
“Despite Zayn’s unbelievable success with his debut single, Harry is quietly confident that his first single will do better,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Like Zayn, Harry wants to distance himself musically from 1D for a bit, and his single will be far edgier, a lot cooler and have a tinge of rock and roll about it. He thinks he will blow Zayn’s solo career out the water, and Harry has the right people behind him who want him to be more successful outside of the band.”
It will be tough for Harry to emulate Zayn’s early success. The latter has scored unbelievable numbers with his first single, “Pillowtalk,” which has topped the iTunes charts in a whopping 60 countries. But the competition between Zayn and the boys of 1D has been intense ever since Zayn left the band. Zayn has also dissed the band a number of times, only adding fuel to Harry’s determination.
HollywoodLife.com learned EXCLUSIVELY that Harry wasn’t really impressed by Zayn’s solo single. “He really doesn’t think that it is as good as anything that 1D has done with or without Zayn,” our source said.
Well, when Harry releases his own material, fans will surely flock in millions to listen to his track, too. We can’t wait for that to drop!
