Liam Payne Announces His Solo Career! Is This The Final Nail In One Direction’s Coffin?

It’s not looking good, Directioners.

Things have been going very smoothly for Liam Payne since the split of One Direction!

Not only has the singer been cozying up to fellow UK powerhouse Cheryl Ferandez-Versini — but his solo music career is looking just as bright.

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:

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!
