What Does Louis Tomlinson’s Split From Simon Cowell’s Label Syco Music Mean For His Career?
Louis Tomlinson first made a name for himself when he was put into the boyband One Direction on season 7 of The X Factor UK in 2010. He was signed to Simon Cowell’s own label Syco Music after all of the band’s success on the show. And after 10 years, he took to Twitter to make a big announcement.
Louis Tomlinson Ended His Relationship With Syco Music & Simon Cowell
The 28-year-old singer is just days away from celebrating the 10 year anniversary of One Direction. He does not tweet often, so when he does, Twitter is always hanging onto every word. “Hope everyone is doing ok! Just wanted to let you know that Syco Music and I have agreed to part ways” he tweeted. “I’m really excited for the future and to be back in the studio writing the next album. Can’t wait to finally see you all on tour!! Stay safe and see you soon, Louis x.” Not only are fans excited to hear some new music, but they also got #ProudofLouis and #LouisisFree trending on Twitter.
One fan wrote “The talent, the goodness, I can’t wait to see him smile again. We will always be with you Lou, never forget it! You changed me and I hope one day to be as strong as you are. You deserve the world and from now everything will get better.”
Louis was the only member of One Direction that was still signed to Syco Music as all of the members have pursued solo careers after announcing their hiatus in 2016. Simon and Louis have always maintained a working relationship, and he was even brought on as a judge of The X Factor in 2018 to mentor the boy’s category. He released an album under Syco Music called “Walls” earlier in 2020.
Louis Is Looking Forward To Getting Back On Tour
Louis recently posted a black and white image from his tour that he was forced to cancel back in March due to the coronavirus pandemic. He wrote in the caption that he wants artists to ask “the UK government to protect and support all of the hard-working and talented people who come together to create these shows, and give a clear plan of how the live music industry will restart.” He did promise his fans that the tour would continue with rescheduled dates.
So its pretty safe to say that after his split with Simon’s label, Louis is not planning on stopping making music any time soon. With his new album delayed due to coronavirus, we can expect that the star will only continue to dominate the music scene once touring and recording resumes.
Plus, he will always have the support of his loyal fans that cannot wait for some new music. As for Simon, he is reportedly looking at buying a mansion in Barbados, so this amicable decision does not have him bummed-out.
