Oh my god! A new Liam Payne song leaked on April 20, and it is sooo different than his work with One Direction. As in, it’s rap! The song is called ‘You’ by Wiz Khalifa and Juicy J, and Liam’s chorus sounds a lot like his ex-bandmate Zayn Malik. Listen to the shocking new jam, here!
Liam Payne, is that you?! The ex-Directioner sounds totally different from his boy band days in his new song with Juicy J and Wiz Khalifa called “You,” but we’re still totally into it! You have to hear his sexy, sultry new single and let us know what you think of it, right here.
It looks like Liam might be following his ex-bandmade and friend Zayn Malik into the world of hip-hop and rap, because the new song by Wiz and Juciy featuring his mesmerizing voice is totally different from anything we ever heard from him while he was still in One Direction.
TMZ obtained the new track “You” featuring Liam in the chorus, and it reminds us a LOT of Zayn’s “Pillowtalk” sound. We’re totally into it, but we’re definitely shocked at how quickly the boybander went solo after 1D announced their hiatus.
TMZ reported that Liam was trying to get into the rap game, and there’s really no one better to help him get a little cred than Wiz and Juicy. They report that he will be taking notes for his solo album, which will include rapping on top of his usual gorgeous singing. They also report that this is just one of five songs produced with producer TM88 (from 808 Mafia). We can’t wait to hear the others!
The leak is a far cry from what we thought we would be hearing as Liam’s first solo song, which he posted a bit of in Jan.. It still included a little rapping, but definitely wasn’t a full-on rap song. We love what we’re hearing, Liam. Keep it coming
