Harry Styles recently decided to pen a tune with singer-songwriter John Legend. Since doing anything outside of One Direction is a sign that the end is near, many people are extremely worried the group is slowly but surely coming to a close.
Styles has to hate the amount of attention his every movement generates from celebrity gossip websites and tabloids. The guy can’t have a conversation with anyone about anything without it making headlines. Naturally, Harry’s decision to work with Legend has sparked rumors that he’s pursuing a solo career.
According to Hollywood Life, Harry Styles bumped into John’s manager and mentioned that he was a huge fan of the singer. Once word got back to Legend that the One Direction heartthrob was an admirer, the pair decided to get together for a meeting of the minds.
“We got together for a few hours and wrote what I think is a really lovely song,” Legend said of his encounter with Styles.
The singer continued, “I’d love to write with him again as he is a very great guy and very talented. He has some really great lyrical ideas and is a very good songwriter.”
This certainly isn’t the first time Harry Styles solo rumors have bubbled to the surface. The singer’s rep was previously forced to contend with these reports late last year. Despite what the rumor mill has churned out, Styles apparently has no desire to leave One Direction behind.
“The relationship that I’ve grown with these four boys that I didn’t know four years ago is just absolutely incredible and it’s insane. I’m very lucky that I get to spend so much time with them,” Harry explained during an interview.
He added, “I’m all good, I’m 100 percent in this band.”
Of course, that doesn’t necessarily mean Harry Styles isn’t laying the groundwork for his post-One Direction career. After all, most boy bands come to a close at one point or another. Since the dream can’t last forever, Styles is possibly making some connections should the group implode down the road.
The Inquisitr previously reported that Harry may have met up with Leonardo DiCaprio to discuss his future in Hollywood. According to an anonymous source, Styles could land a role in a picture produced by the Wolf of Wall Street star’s company.
“Leo’s production company Appian Way has at least ten movie projects in the works with roles that could interest Harry. Leo’s invited Harry over to his house for a long weekend when their schedules allow to talk work and women. Bradley Cooper will probably be around too,” the insider dished.
