Will Harry Styles say “yes” to his solo career? Rapper and music mogul Jay Z plans to sign the 1D lad. If Harry accepts the offer, should fans expect his duet performance with Beyoncé?

Speaking to The Daily Star, Jay Z admitted his plans to turn Harry Styles into the “World’s biggest star.” The hip hop icon believes he’s the “perfect person” who can help Harry jumpstart his solo career.

He said,

“Harry doesn’t need any help with exposure, everybody in the world knows who he is. But he does need to make the transition from being part of a group to becoming an individual artist. I can get him working with the bigger artists, the biggest producers – and have him as the biggest artist in the world within a year.”

Recently, the One Direction member was reported to have co-written four new songs on his own. It emerged that he’s been working with songwriter/producer Gary Go and Snow Patrol’s Johnny McDaid.

Despite his denial to leave the boy band group, do you think he’ll change his mind and accept Jay Z’s offer? Although there’s no confirmation on his duet with Beyoncé, it does not mean it could not happen, right? Maybe, not just now.

The Roc Nation boss told The Daily Star that he’s considering to team up with “X Factor” boss Simon Cowell.

Jay Z added,

“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. And Harry can make more than enough money for everybody to get a piece of the pie.”

Despite One Direction’s 18-month hiatus, News.com.au mentioned that the boys admitted they won’t part ways. When BBC Radio 2’s Steve Wright asked the 1D lads on who’s going solo, each member gave a “no.”
