Wiz Khalifa and Juicy J Brought A Member Of One Direction Into The Hip Hop Game

One Direction’s Liam Payne has some new cred now.

Published April 20, 2016

One Direction’s Liam Payne is exploring new sounds and doing everything he can to break away from his boy band roots. His new direction? Rap music.

In new music shared with TMZ, the singer is heard on a track that received production treatment from TM88 (of 808 Mafia) and features none other than Wiz Khalifa and Juicy J.

Payne handles the hook, naturally, but he has dabbled with rapping in the past. The singer also has shared that he will rap and sing on his forthcoming solo album.

Regardless of what you think of the singer's new music, working with Wiz Khalifa and Juicy J is definitely a solid move. Check out the track teaser below.
