"Harry's song I heard, and I'll be honest with you, it's not my sort of music so it's not something I'd listen to".
And a third added: 'okay cool Liam just take every last hope I ever had for them getting back together'. With that said, everyone is working on their own projects now and it shouldn't come as a shock for the group to distance themselves from anything related to One Direction. That's the way I'd put it best, I think, ' he managed.
Let's hope it's sooner rather than later because although we're all looking forward to Liam's new tune - nothing beats You Don't Know You're lovely, right? "And I think the amusing thing is, [Harry] would say the same thing about me because he doesn't really listen to hip-hop music, where it's like my song's more [like Tyga " s] "Rack City, '" Payne said of his urban-inspired sound. We just shot that. Insane team. Cool guy, nice guy. "It's gonna be a surprise though".
But Harry's track wasn't quite music to Liam's ears. A source told The Sun earlier this year: "Liam wants his solo music to sound like a mix between Justin Bieber and Drake".
Partnering up with Snapchat, Liam created special filters containing lines to the new song which have been placed at certain places around the world - including the Empire State Building in NY and the Santa Monica Pier in California. Payne recently spoke to Music Choice and shared his thoughts about his former bandmate's recordings outside of One Direction, and though he had nice things to say about Niall Horan, when discussing Styles' new music, Payne got a little shady. "My song is more brazy, and his song's more of a different era".
Payne implied his music is more contemporary and more similar to today's music, considering its hip-hop vibe. Following the announcement of One Direction's hiatus in 2015, the band members began to work on launching their solo careers.
"I'm really happy to have signed to such a prestigious label as Capitol Records UK", he said in July.
