i think that louis' is more into songwriting and producing. he may release and collab on singles once in a while but he's not like into launching full albums and touring on his own (?). and i really like it because it'll be more lucrative and long term as a career.
I know that you have good intentions with this ask, but I’m really not into it, sorry. A lot of people in this fandom tried to say that Louis is more into songwriting and producing than singing and then he dropped Just Hold On with Steve, so please don’t come onto my blog acting like he cares less about singing and making his own albums and touring than Harry, Liam, or Niall, because I think that’s complete and utter bullshit.
Louis is currently trapped in hell and is clearly not able to put out music and promote it the way he wants to, which may make it seem like he’s hesitant on the album and touring front, but until he’s free, I’m not going to dismiss Louis’ love for singing and say “oh, I think he mostly just wants to be behind the scenes” because he himself has said that he’s interested in putting out more music and possibly an album. I think you’re making judgments based on the fact that Louis hasn’t signed a record deal yet and hasn’t done some of the stuff that you’d typically see with a solo career, but I think it’s unbelievably unfair to do that because it’s obvious he’s tied down in really significant ways that the other boys are not, or at least not to nearly the same extent that he is.
I think Louis does love songwriting and behind the scenes stuff, but he auditioned for the X-Factor because he wanted to be a singer, he was upset and felt that he wasn’t contributing enough to the band when they weren’t giving him solos because he wanted to be a singer, he gained more and more solos over the years because he wanted to be a singer, and he worked with Steve and sang on Just Hold On because he wants to be a singer. And I think it’s obvious that Louis loves performing (even if he gets nervous being on his own), so I don’t know how you can assume he isn’t as interested in touring.
It just doesn’t make sense to me that you would look at Louis when he has chains around his ankles and make a judgment on what he wants from his career based on that, so I don’t agree with your perspective on this.
