Louis’s History with Syco Music
Louis began working with Syco Music since his One Direction days. The group signed a contract of £2 million with the company. They signed the contract after coming in as runner up on X Factor’s seventh season.
The group was made on the show and they went on to sign a contract a year after the show ended. One Direction released five best selling albums with Simon.
Even after the group dismantled, Louis was a part of the company. He recorded singles like Just Hold On and Back To You before his debut album was released in January. The singer was the only member of the group who had resigned his contract with the record label.
Louis also came in as a judge in Simon’s show The X factor in 2018. He acted as a mentor to the ‘Boys’ category and his mentee Dalton Harris went on to win the show.
His music has received 1.5 billion streams and his solo album Walls, released in January, is the third best-selling debut record of 2020 so far in the UK.
Earlier this year, Liam Payne, a former member of One Direction had teased a reunion of the group for their tenth anniversary. Their group will complete ten years on July 23 this year. However, Niall Horan has confirmed that there will be no reunion.
On asking if they would be making a comeback for the occasion, he said: “We’ve been chatting about it, little bits and pieces that we can do, but nothing in terms of getting the band back together, so for now, no.”
