Is Harry Styles Working With Bruno Mars & Max Martin?

Niall Horan just yesterday (November 27) said with confidence that One Direction would return, but it’s hard to care about that now that there’s a rumor that Harry Styles has linked up with Bruno Mars and Max Martin for his solo album.

Styles’ solo debut is probably the most hyped of all the 1D spinoffs, and the expectations will only get higher with the new update, which comes from Robbie Williams. Here’s how he told Radio Times he came across this information, according to the Belfast Telegraph:

“Last year I tried to work with Bruno Mars – didn’t hear anything back. 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.'”

Williams then joked, “You’re the new me. Good luck!”

This is a bit like when Lily Allen recounted a story about Mark Ronson canceling on her because he was busy working with Lady Gaga, thus jumpstarting the LG5 rumors. We’ll see if these collabs pan out whenever Styles finally gives an update on the project.
