Back in July, Liam Payne announced he was signing his solo deal with Capital Records in UK.

Now he’s making more permanent plans for the future.

The former One Direction star just signed with Republic Records in the states.

Republic Records is best known for launching artists such as Drake, Nicki Minaj, The Weeknd and Ariana Grande.

Liam’s manager, Simon Oliveira, released 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.”

The CEO of Republic Record also commented on the exciting news writing, “Being a member of the most successful group of the last decade, Liam has a tremendous opportunity to make an even greater impact on pop culture. We’re honored by Liam’s decision to join Republic Records, and have extremely high expectations for his solo career.”

The press release also teases “new music from Liam Payne coming soon.”
