Louis Tomlinson certainly knows what it takes to have a hit song, particularly during his time in One Direction.
While he has certainly appreciated that success, in a heartfelt tweet he revealed his new creative approach as a solo artist won’t be focused on the charts.
He writes in part: “I feel like I’ve been mistranslating it for the last 3 years. Everything I’ve known, in my career, is straight down the middle pop. My expectations and aspirations are all shaped around my prior experiences, as much as I try and stay realistic I couldn’t help but crave a ‘hit’ single…Maybe I should start with what I love and work from there instead of a more specific formulae…worry less about being defined on commercial success. I’m not here to compete with the likes of Drake and Ariana Grande. I’m here to make music I love and make my fan proud to say they’re a fan.”
