Fresh off former band mate Zayn Malik making music history, ex-One Directioner Liam Payne has thrown his proverbial hat into the ring and released a teaser of his upcoming solo project.
Liam, who is currently dating our Cheryl, features on a track called You by Juicy J and Wiz Khalifah, and it’s pretty good. A laid-back, R&B affair, it has Brummie Liam holding his own against some US hip hop heavyweights, smoothly singing “all I need is you” in falsetto. An ode to his leading lady, perhaps?
The song is a less edgy approach than what Zayn, who debuted at number one in the US album charts with his debut Mind Of Mine, has put out – let’s hope Liam isn’t gearing up to be the JC Chasez to Zayn’s Justin.
