Liam Payne is working with rap stars Migos on a collaboration.
The 23-year-old singer has reportedly teamed up with the hip-hop trio – comprised of Quavo, Offset and Takeoff – for a song on his eagerly-anticiparted debut solo album in a bid to make something different to his One Direction bandmate, Harry Styles, who recently dropped his new single ‘Sign of the Times’.
And, although he is teaming up with Migos – who became popular after featuring on Calvin Harris and Frank Ocean’s ‘Slide’ – sources say Liam is not turning to rap and wants to sound like Justin Bieber meets Drake with his new tunes.
An insider told The Sun newspaper: “Working with Migos is a big deal.
“They are one of the most highly regarded hip-hop groups in the world.
“The collaboration will help push his name out beyond 1D fans in the States.
“Liam wants his solo music to sound like a mix between Justin Bieber and Drake
“It’s definitely not going to be a hip-hop album. He has worked with so many different producers and artists.
