Louis Tomlinson Admits Harry Styles' Solo Success After One Direction Bothered Him at First

The singer also shares an update about where 1D stands now.

Ever since One Direction announced their hiatus in 2016, the remaining four members (Zayn Malik left the band in 2015) — Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan and Liam Payne — decided to pursue solo careers. Though all singers have reached success in some way or another, Styles became the breakout star, which initially didn’t sit well with Tomlinson.

In a new interview with The Telegraph, the eldest 1D member opened up about why Styles’ success created those negative feelings. “I’d be lying if I said it didn’t bother me at first,” Tomlinson recently told the outlet. “Only ‘cos I didn’t know where to place myself, and really my only point of reference was other members of the band. But it’s not surprising to me that Harry’s the most commercially successful because he really fits the mold of a modern star.”

The “Back to You” singer continued, “He’s got film as well, and the tour he’s done is unbelievable. It took me a while to work out where I stand. But I look on Harry like a brother, man. I have a lot of pride for what he’s doing.”

Tomlinson also admitted that he struggled finding his own unique sound once he tried pursuing his solo music. “It was a bit daunting,” he added. “I’d just got to a stage where I really started to feel like I found my rhythm, I was enjoying songwriting, I felt like I finally worked out where I am in that band. And then it’s like: ‘Okay, well, now we’re going on a break.’ So there was a bit of petulance from my end, I was frustrated.”

As far as his relationship with the other 1D members, things are OK. “I’m sure the lads will text me when the album comes out,” Tomlinson said. “We check in on each other, we’re good like that. I bumped into Niall at Glastonbury, and even though we hadn’t spoken all year, it was like absolutely no time had passed.”

The British artist added, “Because we’ve lived through such experiences together in One Direction, this bond that we have is for life.”

Stay tuned for Tomlinson’s sophomore solo album, Faith in the Future, which releases on November 11.
