"The Album Is Still Definitely My Priority": LOUIS TOMLINSON Tells Fans After Return To 'The X Factor'
Fans of Louis Tomlinson have long been waiting for the day that the One Direction member finally releases his debut solo album. However, his fans got worried that his latest stint as the newest judge of The X Factor will get in the way of the project's progress.
"I just want everyone to not worry too much about the album. I mean, as I said today in the press conference, the album is still definitely my priority," he assured fans in a video message. "It doesn't change release time or anything like that, me doing the show."
He added, "I just thought, I've come from the show. It made a lot of sense for me to go on and I've always been really interested in mentoring. It's something that's been on my mind for a number of years now and as soon as I got the assurance that it wasn't going to affect any of my music—actually, it was going to help it—then I could start seriously thinking about it." Watch the full video below.
For the show's 15th season, Louis will take a seat on the judge table with his mentor Simon Cowell, and Robbie and Ayda Williams.
