But how does he know? Were his boyband senses tingling?
In a sit down on the Meredith Vieira Show, Lance revealed, "Harry Styles has been ready to go solo for many months. In fact, he's been recording solo, he was about to leave."
Well, sounds a bit fuzzy, but Lance continued, "The Zayn thing was just spur of the moment but I think the best move he could have ever done because everyone...Harry Styles is a household name, my grandmother knows who Harry Styles is. Zayn Malik, didn't really know the name until he was the first to leave the group. Kudos to him for being smart to leave."
Lance also explained that One Direction will probably split up, but he believes "the guys are always going to be friends. They're brothers." He added, "They were put in a situation that they didn't know they were going to be in. They were put together on a television show. That they lasted this long as a group is a surprise to me. Hopefully, the other four can go on and maybe do a little more music. I just see Harry leaving soon and I don't see another One Direction album happening after he does."
