According to a very reliable source, Harry Styles is working on some new music with a pair of music-biz heavyweights.
That’s what British pop star Robbie Williams reveals in a recent interview with the Belfast Telegraph, claiming that he ran into the One Direction singer and got the scoop on his still-to-launch solo career.
“Last year I tried to work with Bruno Mars — didn’t hear anything back,” says Williams. “Tried to work with Max Martin — didn’t hear anything back. They literally didn’t return my calls. Then I met Harry Styles in an airport. ‘Oh, you’re writing, Harry? Great, who with?’ He goes: ‘Well, I just spent a week with Bruno Mars, and I’m about to spend a week with Max Martin.’”
While Bruno Mars needs no introduction, Martin’s work as a producer is impeccable, having produced hits for the likes of Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Britney Spears, Celine Dion, The Weeknd, Ariana Grande, Christina Aguilera and more.
“I think Harry Styles has beguiled the whole world just by being Harry Styles,” says Williams of the 1D heartthrob. “He’s got a David Beckham-style quality. So he’s won in that regard. There’s a space for him but the music has to be great.”
