One Direction member Liam Payne reportedly is reportedly an aspiring rapper as part of his own journey to stardom after the group went on an indefinite hiatus. Hence, he continues to tease the fans by posting an eight-second clip of his alleged new song with Juicy J which is aptly titled, “You.”

The anticipated hit was shared on Twitter with a caption that reads, “Snippet of Liam singing on Juicy J’s “You,” which will be on his new mixtape.”

As Teen Vogue reported, fans may hear Payne singing a short verse transcribed as “All I need is you.” However, the website is wondering if the lad is throwing shade at their ex-groupmate, Zayn Malik, who left the band last year.

The former 1D member, who would like to be called as Zayn, has a single, titled “It’s You,” which is included on his highly-anticipated album “Mind of Mine.” The release of Payne’s mixtape is still unconfirmed but it might be coincidental to Zayn’s album launch as well.

Before he released the clip, Juicy J had asked their supporters on Snapchat if they want to hear their collaboration, thus, the teaser. Teen Vogue also wrote that his work with Juicy J is sort of expected.


Prior to the short snippet, TMZ reported as well that Liam Payne had a rapping session with Juicy J in Malibu, along with producers TM 88 from 808 Mafia. Those who have heard his rapping ability allegedly claimed that the 1D lad was pretty good!

Aside from that, the 22-year old 1D hunk has been open about his dreams of becoming a songwriter. But his aspiration became reality when Jennifer Lopez asked him to work with her.

Aside from his blossoming career, Liam Payne appears to be happy now that he is dating Cheryl Fernandez- Versini. The couple met each other during his audition at “X factor” where his girlfriend was one of the judges.
