Louis Tomlinson has become the last member of One Direction to launch a solo career after the band’s hiatus in January.
The eldest 1D dude has been working hard on solo stuff and plans to release his new tunes with Simon Cowell’s label, Syco.
“Louis is a brilliant songwriter and had not initially planned his own solo career,” The Sun reports. “But he’s been back in the studio and has been working on some really amazing music. He’s played some to the powers that be at Syco, who are really excited. They think he could be a real success as a solo artist, given his proven ability to write hit records and massive fanbase as part of One Direction.”
While we at DOLLY HQ are devo’d by this news (only 'cos it solidifies the band breaking up), we know a certain blonde, Irishman who will be even more devo to hear about Louis’ solo venture.
Niall "let’s get the band back together” Horan was recently quoted saying that he hopes the band will reunite soon.
“We will be back,” he said, during a red carpet interview in November. “We would be silly not to… ridiculous.”
Sorry Niall, but it looks like the hiatus’ end date just keeps getting further and further away.
Meanwhile, we’re keen AF to see what ol’ Louis comes up with!
Perhaps a sassy track from the sassmaster from Doncaster? Or maybe even a not-so-subtle love ballad dedicated to Harry? We’ll see…
