WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR THE BOYBAND?!
Directioners, we have some news and we’re not sure how much hope it will give you for a One Direction reunion in the near future.
Harry Styles has signed a solo record deal.
Whilst Zayn Malik may have been the first from the boyband to go solo, it doesn’t look like he will be the last as the Mr Styles has reportedly followed in his footsteps by signing a deal with Columbia Records. Yep, the same Columbia Records that looks after One Direction in America.
Sadly, there is no timeline for when we can expect any solo stuff for the man himself, but it’s quite exciting, right?!
Although, we do wonder if this means that a full One Direction reunion is a way off yet… if they get back together at all.
Some fans were on board with the idea:
Guys chill out, just because Harry signed a solo project it doesn't mean they're breaking up. #1DStayWithUs— One Direction (@1DWorldTalk) June 24, 2016

Whilst others are LESS than impressed...
I think we've all been very vulnerable ever since zayn left, we don't want a repeat of that.We love you idiots, please stay. #1dstaywithus— almightyyniel (@girllalmighttyy) June 24, 2016
