Liam Payne’s First Song Since Taking a Break from One Direction Is Here

Does this mean the end of One Direction as we know it?

When One Direction announced they were taking a break last year, they promised fans it absolutely did not mean they were breaking up. Despite that promise, it seems like that’s exactly what’s happening, and this latest news only confirms it.

A song featuring Liam Payne, Juicy J, and Wiz Khalifa titled “You,” just leaked, and it doesn’t seem like Payne is missing the boys from 1D one bit. While Payne has never expressed the kind of creative differences that plagued Zayn Malik, he’s always had an affinity for Hip Hop and R&B, so the Juicy J/Khalifa pairing seems right up his alley.

Payne insisted on Twitter that the song is not an official single, just something he does on the weekends, but Directioners, brace yourselves, the end is near.
