Is Harry Styles going solo? Rumors that the One Direction hottie is leaving the band were sparked when Steve Garrigan of Kodaline revealed that they had written songs with Styles and suggested that he might use them for his own material.

“It could be on his album if he does something, but I don’t know,” Garrigan told Digital Spy of the tracks written with Styles. “Nothing’s set in stone.”

But according to One Direction’s rep, Directioners can breathe a collective sigh of relief.

“There are no plans for Harry to release any solo music at this time, any writing that he is doing is for potential One Direction songs,” the band’s rep told E! News. “It’s common knowledge that the boys write separately and bring to each other for the album.”

That “common knowledge” includes the fact that Harry Styles penned a song for Ariana Grande and has reportedly worked with Ryan Tedder and John Legend, while Zayn Malik worked with Emeli Sande, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson hit the studio with Good Charlotte, and Niall Horan worked with McFly.

This isn’t the first time that the curly-haired cutie was plagued with “solo” rumors — and it’s also not the first time that One Direction’s rep shot them down, either. So fear not, Directioners! Your boys aren’t going anywhere any time soon.
