Some VERY Exciting News For Liam Payne!!!
While we hoped Liam Payne would put an end to the persistent rumours surrounding girlfriend Cheryl Crowe's rumoured pregnancy, he did confirm something nearly as exciting for Directioners. He's set to launch his solo career and has signed on with Republic Records.
Speculation has grown over the past few months that the 23-year-old would follow in the footsteps of Zayn and Niall and launch a solo career, after he was spotted in the studio with Pharrell.
Liam took to Twitter to announce the news to his followers, writing: "Amazing to have signed to @RepublicRecords I am celebrating as I tweet thank you so much for accepting me to your roster of amazing artists."
Fans were quick to congratulate the star and the hashtag #congratsliam soon stated trending on Twitter. It led many fans to believe the former One Direction star had confirmed his baby news.
Republic Records said it was honoured to have the 23-year-old sign on and they have 'extremely high expectations for his solo career.'
"Being a member of the most successful group of the last decade, Liam has a tremendous opportunity to make an even greater impact on pop culture," Republic Records Co-Founder and C.E.O. Monte Lipman said.
The news comes after X-Factor judge Simon Cowel admitted he was disappointed Zayn and Niall didn't choose to stay with Sony's Syco label.
Now we just need Harry's album to drop and life will be complete.
