Liam Payne has been teasing fans into a frenzy on social media this week by stripping off as he prepares to drop his debut solo track.
But now the wait is officially over, the real frenzy can begin, as Liam has announced that his new single ‘Strip That Down’ will be released in just over a week.
Liam made the announcement with a short Facebook Live video tonight (May 11), debuting a longer teaser that gives us a first hint at what to expect from his new sound.
‘Strip That Down’, which will also feature Migos rapper Quavo, will be out on May 19, and considering hip-hop collective Migos have been busy shooting Liam’s first solo music video recently too, we’re hoping it won’t be long before that drops as well.
Liam is the last member of One Direction to release his own solo music, but that hasn’t stopped him from routinely teasing some very sexy sounds from his recording studio. It’s also been reported that the singer has started collaborating with Ed Sheeran, so Liam may have made us wait to hear what he’s been up to but it sounds like it will be worth it.
It’s no doubt gearing up to be a very busy summer for Liam as his solo single comes just over a month after he welcomed his first child, Bear, with partner Cheryl back in March.
‘Strip That Down’ will be released a week after former 1D bandmate Harry Styles’ debut album drops tomorrow (May 12), so it looks like that e-mail chain the boys all have to avoid music clashes has turned out to be actually quite a great idea.
