Even if One Direction fans didn’t want it to happen, Harry Styles declared that he is going solo during the group’s break by signing a solo record deal with Columbia Records on June 23.

Harry’s deal reportedly landed him a $80 million.

According to HitsDailyDouble.com, If you think that’s crazy, that was just the beginning! Apparently the winning $80 million bid, which went to Columbia Records, locked Harry down for three full albums!

While Harry fans are surely rejoicing that they’ll get to hear his beautiful voice by itself on three records, this news is surely a bit alarming to Directioners. The 1D guys have promised over and over that they’ll be coming back from their hiatus in the next year and a half or so, but three albums in under two years sounds a bit impossible. Especially with Harry’s acting career kicking off with Christopher Nolan‘s Dunkirk.
