Liam Payne, once seen as the quiet (boring) member of 1D has recently been coming into his own. Whether that's from dating his former mentor Cheryl Cole and being her rumoured soon to be baby daddy, or signing a solo deal with Capitol Records in the UK, he has now added another notch to his belt- getting signed to Republic Records.
Yup, you heard right, Republic Records. Known for looking after some pretty big names like Drake, Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande.
Liam's manager Simon Oliveira issues the following statement "With Republic's track record of launching powerhouse talent in the US including superstars like Drake, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, The Weeknd, Ariana Grande, Lorde, and countless others, I am more than confident we have assembled the best possible team alongside Capitol's UK label to launch and shepherd Liam's solo career".
