Harry Styles: Falling singer SHATTERS hopes of One Direction reunion with cryptic comments
Harry Styles’ solo career is going from strength to strength amid One Direction’s ongoing hiatus. The boyband went their separate ways back in 2016, a year after Zayn Malik left the group. Since then, Styles, like his former bandmates Malik, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne and Niall Horan, has broken out on his own.
The ex-One Direction star released his self-titled debut solo album, which went straight in a number one, in 2017.
Last December, he dropped his second record, Fine Line, which peaked at number three in the UK albums chart and featured singles Lights Up, Watermelon Sugar and Adore You.
He recently dazzled fans once again with the release of the spectacular music video for there fourth single, Falling.
While Styles is thriving as a solo artist and embracing new musical directions a far cry from One Direction’s vein, fans are convinced the band are going to get back together soon.

But in a new interview, the Falling singer appeared to douse those dreams as he hinted that “reevaluating” what made him happy in life had led him further away from his past.
“I’m very old now!” he said at iHeartRadio’s Secret Sessions at The Bowery Ballroom in New York. “I think you just reevaluate things. And I think that happens at like several different points in your life.
“I don’t think it will be the last time that I reevaluate what’s important to me,” the former One Direction favourite continued. “But I think you have moments where you go… I think it happens to everyone in different times of your life where you think you want something, and you get it and you go, ‘Oh, that didn’t make me as happy as I thought it was going to make me.’”
The cryptic remarks seemed to imply he was less happy with where his life was in the last chapter.
“And then, you kind of look for different things and I guess I just put a lot more emphasis on trying to find the balance and trying to do what makes me happy rather than trying to work out what I’m supposed to be doing,” he added. “So that’s been great.”
Despite Styles’ comments, One Direction are still odds-on for a 2020 reunion with bookies.
Ladbrokes have priced the band at 10-11 to get back together before the year is out.
“We’ve already seen one X Factor boyband reunite in 2020 and it’s odds-on for 1D to follow JLS and get back together before the year is out,” Alex Apati told Express.co.uk.

Elsewhere, the One Direction gang (minus Styles) came close to a sort of reunion earlier this month when they all attended the Tyson Fury vs. Deontay Wilder fight in Las Vegas.
Payne, Tomlinson, Malik and Horan all went to the fight separately, but it’s still the closest the band have got to being to being back together since their split.
The stars have all individually addressed the possibility of a reunion over the years.
Last year, Payne said a reunion was likely during an interview on Sunday Brunch.
“I think at some point we will get back together. I think we will for sure,” he said.
“I don’t know when that is yet… at least two years…”
When he hosted and performed two of his new singles on Saturday Night Live back in November, Styles made fun of One Direction’s split, joking: “I’m not in a boyband anymore. I’m in a man band.
“How crazy would it be if they were here tonight?” he teased. “They’re not though.”
Styles has said he still considers his former bandmates “family”.
