Liam Payne: I Do NOT Have A Single!
Liam Payne is downplaying a leaked collaboration with Juicy J and Wiz Khalifa, and denying speculation that the song is a solo single. Listen below.
On Wednesday afternoon, TMZ obtained audio of Payne singing the hook on an unreleased track supposedly called “You.” The site claims it’s one of five songs the One Direction member has recorded with Juicy and producer TM88. But while Payne and Juicy have indeed teamed up a few times over the last year, the British star is insisting the music isn’t what it seems.
About two hours after TMZ published the “You” audio, Payne wrote on Twitter, “Hearing that I’ve got a single out lol thats a surprise to me that’s a one take scratch demo I was writing with someone as an idea for them.”
“Guess I need to guard my projects better… They don’t even let you finish these days,” Payne continued with some laughing emojis. He added, “Just to clarify I do not have a single what u just heard is something i get up to on a weekend lol.”
As Gossip Cop reported, Payne previously fueled speculation about a solo career in January when he uploaded an Instagram video of himself lip syncing to a “little song” he said he wrote “for fun.” TMZ maintains, though, that the singer is building up to a full solo album. In the meantime, One Direction remains on hiatus. Check out Payne’s non-single below.
