So, Liam Payne Is Probably Releasing a Solo Rap Album

A new year brings a new Liam Payne—or so it seems.

TMZ reports that the One Directioner spent the weekend in Malibu working on a rap album with producers TM 88 and Juicy J. Payne has allegedly laid down five new tracks that feature his singing and rapping abilities.

Juicy J posted this photo from their studio sesh captioned with a poignant four flame Emojis, which symbolizes that the heat was indeed brought.

Sources say that Payne is an “unbelievable rapper” and an expert freestyler who didn’t need a pen or  a pad to write down his verses. Further, his writing formula is being compared to that of the 6 God, Drake. Rumors surfaced last year in January about the possibility of a rap collaboration with Juicy J, and Payne has previously fooled around with spitting verses at 1D concerts.

There’s also this from the archives, where he’s featured at the one minute mark:
