It is already inevitable – the One Direction members will go solo.
1D boss Simon Cowell confirmed that the members of the British boy band will be having their individual projects soon.
Cowell told E News he is “absolutely sure” there will be solo offerings for the boys.
E Online asked the music mogul if there would be “any more solo projects from the boys.” He replied, “Yeah, there will be more, I’m absolutely sure of that.”
He added fans will be hearing “lots of announcements” of their next projects in the coming months.
“Well, it (the hiatus) was always going to come. You can’t work at that level; the way they did. I mean, lots of things are going to be announced over the next few months, but they were, are, the nicest people, you know, to work with. Hard-working, appreciate everything, so it won’t be the end.”
The Vine noted that the news of One Direction going solo came at the time that Jay-Z spoke out and declared his goal to work with Styles.
The Vine quoted Jay-Z as saying, “I can get him working with the bigger artists, the biggest producers — and have him as the biggest artist within a year. I would love to sign Harry. Simon is going to want to carry on working with him, of course. But we could do a joint venture — we both have big qualities we can bring to the table.”
Louis Tomlinson, meanwhile, has been tapped to serve as a judge on “The X Factor,” while Niall Horan has formed a golf talent management company, the newspaper added.
Rumours of One Direction split is not totally new. There were earlier reports surrounding their temporary break-up like bankruptcy and the members’ desire to pursue solo careers. The group is currently on their hiatus after the released of the band’s fifth album, “Made in the A.M.”
