Harry Styles Is All About That Solo Material, Says Meghan Trainor
The Debrief: The One Direction singer co-wrote the love song on a ukulele...
Though rumours and fears of One Direction's demise have been swirling around the near-broken hearts of millions of their fans all over the world for years, those solo project rumours are absolutely true.
While Zayn Malik is hanging out in the studio with Naughty Boy and Labrinth, Harry Styles is taking a similar journey down a totally different route, as he’s recorded a song called Somebody Maybe with none other than All About That Bass singer Meghan Trainor.
Though we could have been fooled for thinking that Harry with all his tattoos and long hair would go down the indie-pop route, he’s gone straight into pink sparkly fluffy stuff with Meghan, as she told The Sun: ‘It’s a duet! It’s a beautiful song we wrote together on my ukulele. We even recorded a rough demo together with our vocals together.’
‘It’s a cute acoustic love song’
How on earth did the collab happen? ‘A friend of mine said Harry was a fan and said he would love to write with me. He’s an incredible writer, too. I was worried he’d just be a 20-year-old boy. So I walked in with a prepared verse and chorus. But he gave me very poetic, mature lyrics.’
‘I was like “Well damn, Harry, you know what love is.”’
And so do One Direction’s fans, especially the ones who can still stand Harry even after he’s gone solo.
