Liam Payne Essentials

Liam Payne Essentials

Liam Payne’s solo career hews closer to the R&B sauce of former One Direction bandmate ZAYN than the rock classicism of Harry Styles. When establishing his own sound in 2017, Payne wisely drew on the latest pop innovations for his effervescent songwriting productions and collaborations. His greatest hits to date include excitable tropical house (“Strip That Down,” co-written with Ed Sheeran), stirring orchestral pop (“For You (Fifty Shades Freed)” with Rita Ora) and Colombian raunch (“Familiar”), all delivered with one eye on the bedroom and the other maintaining a perpetual cheeky wink.
