Rap mogul and record label chief Jay Z has claimed he can make Harry Styles "the biggest artist in the world".
The Tidal founder and Roc Nation boss has previously mentored Rihanna and Kanye West, but has now set his sights on the One Direction member – who he believes is set for world domination.
“Harry doesn’t need any help with exposure; everybody in the world knows who he is,” he told the Daily Star Sunday.
“But he does need to make the transition from being part of a group to becoming an individual artist.
“I can get him working with the bigger artists, the biggest producers – and have him as the biggest artist in the world within a year.”
It seems as though Styles could join former band member Zayn Malik in going solo – who has already signed to RCA after splitting from the boyband last year.
