Did Harry Styles' breakup with a certain pop starlet (cough: Taylor Swift) inspire him to write a solo album? The One Direction singer reportedly worked on a few tracks in Hollywood during the group's world tour reprieve, according to the Mirror newspaper and Splash News.
One-D fans, don't fret. The source also told the Mirror that Styles' priority is "obviously" still with his group, and he doesn't plan to leave any time soon.
Are you excited to hear his solo album? Think it will be any sort of retaliation for Swift's supposed diss toward him after their split? Let us know in the comments.
