Ed Sheeran Helped Liam Payne Find The Courage To Go Solo

Ed Sheeran Helped Liam Payne Find The Courage To Go Solo featureLiam Payne has been sharing a lot as he promotes the release of his solo single. He’s already dished on his thoughts about other One Direction solo efforts. Now, in an interview with Billboard, he’s opened up about how “Strip That Down” and his solo career almost never happened.

“To be honest with you, I wasn’t going to do a solo venture,” Liam said. “I was just going to go into songwriting and carry on and do that. But then I was like, ‘You’ve been trying to do this since you were 14 years old. You would be ridiculously stupid to turn down the option to have a deal.’ Coming out of the band, we had some pretty good opportunities around us. I had to do something.”

One of those opportunities was coming from a regular 1D collaborator. Liam explained how a call from Ed Sheeran had him globetrotting to start a solo career he wasn’t even sure about.

All Of The 2017 Billboard Music Awards Performances You’ll Be Glad You Missed

Halsey Lorde and Ed Sheeran performCamila Cabello and Miley Cyrus weren’t the only artists to hit the stage for the 2017 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday night. Ed Sheeran, Lorde and Halsey were all musical guests, giving forgettable performances either in Las Vegas or in Chile.

Although this should’ve been the perfect time for Lorde to debut a new song, the singer decided that “Green Light” was the best song to deliver with a karaoke-style performance. The singer had the right idea for anyone who may forget the words to their own track as the song’s lyrics flashed across a television screen.

Halsey also hit the stage performing a song that many feel is just her rip-off of Rihanna’s “Needed Me.” Dressed in all white and a sheer do-rag, the singer performed “Now or Never” which included some interesting dance moves. Ed, who is currently still on tour, joined the awards show with his performance of “Castle On The Hill,” even though “Galway Girl” is his current single.

Watch all three performances below.

Ed Sheeran Reveals He Thinks Only 12 Percent Of His Songs Are Good

Ed Sheeran Thinks About 12 percent of his songs are goodEd Sheeran sat down to chat with the BBC about his early career, his writing process and what an awkward kid he was.  Ed shared the moment in his life when he knew music was his path forward: hearing Eric Clapton play “Layla” for the Queen of England’s Golden Jubilee.

“That day I said, ‘I want to be a musician. I want to play guitar,'” Ed shared. “I got a guitar for Christmas and that was the first song I learned.” The BBC called it “a rather unusual source” for Ed’s music to spring from despite the bevy of English singer-songwriters inspired by Clapton.

Ed does have a habit of setting himself apart from the crowd, though. As he found himself blending into the singer-songwriter scene, he decided he’d be more a novelty with a different crowd: London’s hip-hop community.
