Confirmed: Liam Payne Is Collaborating With Migos On New Solo Music & A "Crazy Vid"
"Crazy vid. Crazy visuals. Crazy team. Cool guy, nice guy. It’s goin’ up."
It’s a good day to be a One Direction fan. First, Harry Styles is dropping a new single today. Second, Niall Horan announced his second solo single. Next up? Liam Payne’s Migos collaboration has been confirmed.
Speaking with Tim Westwood, Migos’ Quavo, said: “I just came from a video today. My boy Liam from One Direction. We just shot that. Crazy vid. Crazy visuals. Crazy team. Cool guy, nice guy. It’s goin’ up. I wasn’t even supposed to say that. It’s gonna be a surprise though.”
In April, a source reported that Liam Payne – the only member of 1D yet to release any solo material - was looking to make a ‘Drake and Justin Bieber inspired new album’, and something that sounds very, very different from Harry Styles’ grand new sound.
“Working with Migos is a big deal. They are one of the most highly regarded hip-hop groups in the world. The collaboration will help push his name out beyond 1D fans in the States," a source told The Sun.
“Liam wants his solo music to sound like a mix between Justin Bieber and Drake. It’s definitely not going to be a hip-hop album. He has worked with so many different producers and artists.
"But what’s for sure is that his songs will sound very, very different to what Harry Styles has put out."
