Payno gets all Hotline Bling on new solo snippet.


After returning to live performing briefly last week, Liam Payne is readying his first solo album.

As Niall Horan does the latest 1D solo rounds, performing his new single This Town on every show imaginable, his bandmate Liam is also about to launch his new sound on us.

Last week, Payne took to a Vegas nightclub stage with super producer Zedd to entertain the crowd and looked right at home in front of an audience:

Tonight, the 23-year-old dropped about a minute of a song that may or may not end up on his debut album, onto his 11 million unsuspecting Instagram followers:

The song continues to establish Liam’s solo sound as firmly within the R&B/pop category currently dominated by the likes of The Weeknd, Drake, and, of course, Zayn Malik. Duet, perhaps?

The rather passionate and explicit lyrics are a certainty to send tabloids into a Cheryl Cole related frenzy as Payne puts it all on the line…and all out there:

I don’t wanna be left without this
I didn’t think that I’d ever find someone
I just wanna make it with you, yeah
All these other ******* here be trippin’
The way you walk in here’s so different
I just wanna make it with you, yeah
All the best things
Take a little time, take a little time, baby
This ain’t nothing
Take a little time, take a little time, baby
I just wanna get tonight
And I promise I’ma make it right
I wanna make love to you
Be on to you
So hard for you

The track was produced by Danny Boy Styles (Beyonce, The Weeknd) and Ben Billions (Banks, Meek Mill, Future), and co-written by Bibi Bourelly (Rihanna, Selena Gomez, Usher).
