One Direction member Harry Styles is starting to carve his name as a solo artist in the music industry but how true is it that he slams ex-member Zayn by allegedly saying that he could do better?

Well, according to Hits Daily Double, it is the music executives who think that Styles can do better than Zayn.  The latter left the group a year ago to pursue a solo career, hence releasing the album “Mind of Mine” that carries the hit single “Pillowtalk.”

They observed that Zayn was “precious about promo opportunities” but ended up canceling some interviews due to his busy schedule. On the other hand, they think that Styles, being known as “the hardest-working man in showbiz,” will catch every opportunity rather than cancel some important meetings.

Harry Styles was the first member of One Direction quartet to allegedly pursue his own dreams. It was reported a few months ago that he is starting to build his solo career journey by attending voice lessons.

This sounds that he is serious about his own musical venture, and according to a source, he is doing it to achieve what he wants as a solo musician. “He’s performed well live and can obviously sing but he’s smart enough to realize he needs to learn more about how best to develop his vocal skills,” quotes NME.

But it looks like the One Direction hottie may not focus on singing alone because he is about to appear in a war film called “Dunkirk” which premieres on July 21, 2017. He even cut his hair shorter as part of his preparation for the movie.

“Harry was absolutely right for the role. As an actor he is unknown, but his readings made him an obvious choice,” director John Papsidera told Mirror. “We thought he was fresh and interesting and he won the role.”
