One Direction member Liam Payne followed the footsteps of Zayn Malik. He also signed up for a solo music career. He is now under contract with Capitol Records UK.
Simon Cowell, the band creator seems to be unhappy for his boys gearing up for solo careers. The “X-Factor” judge was quoted saying ““The great thing about these boys—well, not all of them, but most of them—they are incredibly loyal and you don’t always expect that.” He also added, “Niall, Harry, Louis… amazing,” as reported by The BitBag,
Clearly, he failed to mention Zayn Malik who left the group last March 25, 2015. He also skipped Liam Payne. Since he mentioned that the boys were amazing and loyal, did he mean that Malik and Payne are not loyal? Being frank and famed for being “mean” Cowell’s statement can be interpreted as such.
One Direction started out not as a group but individual performers that auditioned for “X-Factor.” Cowell who an eye for achievers has convinced the boys to unite into one band. The rest is history.
As a band, they became famous and reached the top. They have sold-out concerts in different countries. However, after a few years, the boys opted to go on their own individually as reported by Mirror.
Harry Styles signed a contract with Columbia Records for $80 million after he was cast in “Dunkirk.” Louis Tomlinson became a father and got busy being one.
Fans of One Direction are still hoping for a reunion. However, it seems to be a remote possibility at present because Styles and Payne are tied to their contracts that will take years to expire.
Will Simon Cowell see the reunion of his boys? Will One Direction shine again as one band? Loyal fans see them so and believe they will bring into the band whatever they gained apart from it.
