One Direction has been deteriorating one by one, first Zayn Malik left in 2015 and got his own recording contract, and now Harry Styles has become the second band member to pursue a solo career and has officially landed himself a recording contract.

It has nearly been a year since Zayn Malik signed his solo career contract, and now Harry Styles is following in his footsteps, the young singer has just signed with Columbia Records who he is already linked to as they handled a lot of One Direction’s music business in the US.

One Direction members all have different careers outside of singing

We haven’t yet been told any information as to when we can expect a solo album from Harry Styles and actually the band have not officially split, so they aren’t technically done for good, but we’ll see what is to come. All of the boys from One Direction have pursued careers outside of being a One Direction member, Zayn Malik is now a solo artist, Liam Payne has started working in production, Niall Horan has gone into managing a golf company and Louis Tomlinson has founded his own record label.

They all had a very successful career with One Direction, they gained millions of fans and released five albums over the course of five years and were a global success.

One Direction’s Harry Styles is tackling singing and acting

Harry Styles has also been tackling the world of acting, he is in the process of filming a war drama called Dunkirk and there are rumors that he will feature in Scream Queen’s new season.

Simon Cowell has commented on the 22-year-old’s decision saying “He’ll work out what kind of record he wants to make because he’s got great taste- which is always a help. All the writers and producers want to work with him, understandably, but he probably won’t rush into it.” Simon Cowell admitted that he learnt to put full trust in his artists and had to let them make their own decisions “They had achieved so much in such a short period of time, I didn’t want them to get jaded. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned to trust people more, particularly artists. They’ll decide when they want to come back together.”
