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.

Looks Like Liam Payne Will Miss Out On A Solo Debut Number One

Looks Like Liam Payne Will Miss Out On A Solo Debut Number One featureLiam Payne is on track to be the third member of One Direction to miss hitting the top of the charts with his solo debut. Liam’s song, “Strip That Down” featuring Quavo from Migos, is projected to finish at number three behind Justin Bieber’s tracks “Despacito” and “I’m The One.”

Liam Payne Doesn’t Trust Harry Styles With His Baby

liam and bearAfter the birth of their son Bear, Liam Payne and Cheryl are on the hunt for a babysitter, but Harry Styles is not on the shortlist. When Liam was asked which of his former band mates he would trust to babysit Bear, he confessed that Louis Tomlinson would be his first pick. It makes sense since the singer already has a 16-month-old son. But Liam’s comments about his other band members are sure to bring a laugh.

“I couldn’t rely on Harry because I feel that my child would come out dressed in something that I just wouldn’t understand…” he said on the Vodafone Big Top 40. So it seems that Harry Styles doesn’t have much style in his former band mate’s opinion. To boot, Liam isn’t a fan of Harry’s music’s, either.

Fans may have expected the One Direction singer’s debut single, but he only released an extended version of the musical teaser he shared on Wednesday after leading fans to his Facebook.

Or maybe he was feeling merciful to his band mate Harry Styles, who’s getting ready to drop his debut solo album on Friday. Whether Liam was trying to avoid stealing thunder or having his thunder stolen, fans will have to settle for just 20 seconds of “Strip That Down” for now.

The full single will be out May 19.
