Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson are said to be the highest earners in One Direction, thanks to their songwriting skills.
Harry Styles may be the most famous member of the X Factor band and boast the biggest fanbase and online following however perhaps he needs to spend less time partying in LA and more time in the recording studio, because Louis and Liam are raking in the cash in his absence.
The Sun claims the pair earn more money than all of their other bandmates, after they penned more songs for their Midnight Memories album than any of their counterparts.
The trend is set to continue as both men have hit the studio again this month, as they prepare material for the band’s fourth album.
Lima chatted with the newspaper about his and Tommo’s ‘partnership’ and added:
“I’ve been in the studio already, it’s been going really well. Learning how to write is the best way of ensuring your career has longevity and that you have control over it.”
The star also promised fans that their next record will be a ‘game-changer’ for the band, when it’s released later this year.
Louis and Liam had songwriting credits on around half of their last album and they’re hoping their songs will be even more prominent this time round.
We reported this morning that despite all the rumours surrounding One Direction and all the talk of a split and a breakup, the band are tied together for at least another two to three years.
SYCO have contracted the stars for three more albums, one of which will most likely be a Greatest Hits compilation, and to renege on the deal would cost each singer millions of pounds in penalties.
It looks like 1D are here to stay and Tomlinson and Payne are set to keep growing those nest eggs!
