So apparently loads of record label bosses reckon Harry Styles could be an even bigger solo star than Zayn Malik, which is a pretty big deal seeing as el Maliko's killin' the game rn.
Ryan Tedder might not know if we're ever getting a solo album from Harreh, but if it does actually happen it sounds like Zayn's success means label-types are willing to spend biiiig bucks when it comes to Harry's career.
Not that being in the world's biggest boyband isn't enough proof he's popular or anything.
HITS Daily Double reports: 'ZAYN's sales of 300k+ in TEA, 105m video views and 177m streams on the album (of which 160m are on 'PILLOWTALK,' his recent #1 hit), are being scrutinized in boardroom discussions regarding how big a check to write to Harry Styles for his services.
'Most of those who are in the hunt believe Harry has a greater upside than his former 1D bandmate, and ZAYN is said to be a bit precious about promo opportunities, while some have described Harry as the hardest-working man in showbiz. Expect Harry's free agency to end soon.'
OOH and AAH.
