Harry Styles confirmed that he is not quitting the band to go solo. Styles recently teamed up with Irish rockers Kodaline and soon after, rumors began to swirl saying that Styles was quitting the band One Direction to pursue a solo career.
"He just turned up to a show, and he likes our music. We had a bit of free time and so we went to the studio and wrote a song. It was good fun. [The track] could be on his album if he does something, but I don't know. Nothing is set in stone," said Kodaline's manager.
One Direction’s publicist and spokesperson released a statement about the rumors and said,
"There are no plans for Harry to release any solo music at this time, any writing that he is doing is for potential One Direction songs. It's common knowledge that the boys write separately and bring to each other for the album."
Several other band members have written and recorded music with other artists in the past.
While Harry may not have any plans to go solo with his music, he does enjoy some alone time every now and then. He was recently spotted alone at Lake Como in Italy resting by the pool.
Harry and some of the other band members may have their arguments and differences, but all of them know how important it is for the band to stay together.
One Direction is in the midst of a European tour and Harry took advantage of a short break to enjoy Italy and get some much needed rest.
It is likely that the band will split up some day soon, but luckily for One Direction fans, today is not the day.
Do you think the One Direction members will go their separate ways anytime soon and would any of them be better off going solo?
