2016-01-04 07:14

Los Angeles - Jay Z thinks he can help Harry Styles become a solo success.

The Empire State of Mind rapper believes he can hook the One Director star up with the top artists and producers and ensure his solo career goes really well.

He told the Daily Star on Sunday newspaper: "Harry doesn't need any help with exposure, everybody in the world knows who he is. But he does need to make the transition from being part of a group to becoming an individual artist.

"I can get him working with the bigger artists, the biggest producers - and have him as the biggest artist in the world within a year."

Meanwhile, the 21-year-old singer - whose group will be taking a hiatus next year - has already written a number of songs including four with Snow Patrol's Johnny McDaid

A source said at the time: "Harry has been writing constantly both when on the road and when doing his own thing.

"He's managed to work on and record 20 songs already. Some of what he's written in the past has been given to the band. But he's been working hard on creating his own sound."
