In a new interview with the Daily Star, Jigga reportedly confessed that he has the resources to help the One Direction singer take his name to the next level. "Harry doesn't need any help with exposure, everybody in the world knows who he is," the Roc Nation honcho admitted. "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."
Those are some pretty bold remarks, but if anyone can actually make them come to life, it's Jay Z. Still, Jigga would have to work with Simon Cowell, the man responsible for One Direction's fame.
"I would love to sign Harry," Jay said. "Simon is going to want to carry on working with him, of course. But we could do a joint venture – we both have big qualities we can bring to the table and Harry can make more than enough money for everybody to get a piece of the pie."
If you remember correctly, Jay Z had a pretty big hand at some of Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas' recent career ventures. After Roc Nation's company merged with the pair's management last year, the hip hop heavyweight reportedly pulled some major strings, including Nick's Flaunt cover story and his Made In America gig as well as Demi's nude Vanity Fair photoshoot and "Saturday Night Live" musical appearance.
