Joining Harry Styles and Zayn Malik, One Direction’s Liam Payne is now the third member/former member of the hit group to sign a solo record deal. Earlier this morning Liam took to his official Instagram account to announce to fans that he has signed a deal with Capitol Records. “Very happy to have signed to my new record label Capitol Records. They have such an amazing history of artists, I hope I can follow in the footsteps,” Payne wrote to fans. “One Direction will always be my home and family byt I’m very excited to see what this chapter brings.”
While many may be upset that this is another dagger, making One Direction’s current hiatus a potential indefinite breakup, it will certainly be interesting to see how Payne’s solo music will sound, as he was definitely one of the stand out singers from the ‘What Makes You Beautiful’ group.
