Harry Styles Explains Why He Feared Working Without One Direction


"Harry's song I heard, and I'll be honest with you, it's not my sort of music". Obviously Niall had "Slow Hands" out and he had "This Town, ' which is great", Payne, who drops his upcoming single "Strip That Down" on Friday, May 19, said. With that said, everyone is working on their own projects now and it shouldn't come as a shock for the group to distance themselves from anything related to One Direction.

But he then admitted Styles probably feels the same about his solo debut, "I think the amusing thing is he'd say the same thing about me". It happens to us all, even Liam Payne.

To be fair, Payne did clarify, "I think the amusing thing is, he'd say the same thing about me, 'cause he doesn't really listen to hip-hop music". Insane vid. crazy visuals.

Critics have called Harry Styles' debut album a solid effort, and with tickets to the tour selling out within minutes, TIME claims, it's no surprise that 23-year-old would want to focus his attention on nothing but making sure that he can sustain the amount of success he has had as a solo artist. But on Wednesday, Liam gave fans their biggest sneak peek yet: He announced on Twitter that he was releasing a series of Snapchat filters containing lyrics to his new track.

Partnering up with Snapchat, Liam created special filters containing lines to the new song which have been placed at certain places around the world - including the Empire State Building in NY and the Santa Monica Pier in California. Recently, Migos confirmed they have collaborated with Payne, whose post-1D project has a more hip-hop vibe.

"Harry is not planning on doing many or any One Direction songs during his tour", one insider tells the celebrity news outlet. Following the announcement of One Direction's hiatus in 2015, the band members began to work on launching their solo careers. "Capitol Records has an incredible history stretching right back before even Frank Sinatra and I'm really looking forward to becoming part of their story".
