One Direction's Liam Payne Going Hip Hop?

(Radio.com) Like former One Direction member Zayn Malik, Liam Payne has aspirations for a solo career. Or at least an album. During 1D's hiatus, Payne has been hard at work in the studio developing his own sound, which may be a little less pop and a little more hip-hop.

Over the weekend, Payne was hard at work in the studio collaborating with none other than Juicy J and producer TM 88 of 808 Mafia fame. Juicy J shared a photo of the session on Instagram, captioning it only by tagging Payne and TM 88, and including several fire emojis next to their handles.

Billboard reports that a source involved in the recording session confirmed that Payne is rapping along with singing, and they're trying out a variety of beats and sounds to define his personal musical style. See the post here.
