First Zayn Malik left the band in March, and now reports are saying One Direction is taking a break after they release their fifth album in November. Say it isn’t so!
The remaining members, Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, and Niall Horan, apparently want to focus on their solo careers for a bit.
Harry – arguably the fan favourite – will undoubtedly be able to branch out into a solo career.
Louis is apparently in talks to be a judge on The X Factor
, according to The Sun
. Plus he has a baby to take care of.
Liam Payne will reportedly continue producing and being a DJ.
And Niall is apparently set to make a solo album.
