Speaking on The Meredith Vieira Show, Bass claimed that Styles, 21, has always planned on going solo, reported Billboard.

"I just see Harry Styles leaving soon, and I don't see another One Direction album happening after he leaves," Bass said.

He also noted that Styles has been recording on his own for some time and planned to leave One Direction before Zayn Malik broke away first.

"Harry Styles has been ready to go solo for many months. The Zayn thing was just spur-of-the-moment, but it was the best thing Zayn could have done because now he's a household name."
