It's not looking good, Directioners.
On Thursday, the 22-year-old announced he signed a music deal with Capitol Records!
The singer took to social media to confirm the news, hoping to follow in the footsteps of the label's "amazing history of artists." He shared on Instagram:
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. One direction will always be my home and family but I'm very excited to see what this chapter brings.A photo posted by Liam Payne (@fakeliampayne) on Jul 21, 2016 at 9:19am PDT
Though this news is great for Liam fans, it's a bittersweet announcement for 1D's fan army — now, three of the former bandmates are at different labels!
Zayn Mailk is busy being RCA's brooding bad boy, while Harry Styles signed an $80 million deal with Columbia records. Oh, and let's not forget Louis Tomlinson starting his OWN record label as an imprint of Simon Cowell's Syco label.
Ugh. They might as well be living on other planets!
While we're super happy for Liam and all the boys, our only question is — can we also expect solo music from Niall Horan? Only time will tell!
