One Direction: Liam Payne’s solo career kicks off as Louis Tomlinson continues writing!

One Direction are in the middle of a very long break and Liam Payne is making the most of his free time.

All of the lads have moved onto pastures new and it’s an exciting time for us 1D lovers. There are new projects galore!

Liam Payne has been hanging out with rap star Juicy J for the past few weeks as they work on new material in LA and the pair even leaked a few clips of their jams.

Despite all of that, we were sure that there would be a fair wait for us before we got to hear anything substantial from the star. However we are freaking out tonight, because Juicy J has been spilling details and hinted that it could all come about sooner than we thought!

Super Liam

He admitted that Liam’s material will be on his new album, which should be out this year…..hopefully the next few months. Amazing!

It has also been reported that the hunk will be collaborating with pop sensation Shawn Mendes in the near future.

Meanwhile, Louis Tomlinson has revealed that he will be continuing with his own songwriting throughout the hiatus. The star is enjoying being a new dad and spending most days with his baby son Freddie Reign. However he wants to get back to work soon.

When asked by a fan on Twitter yesterday if he plans on writing during the break, the singer replied:

“Defo !!!!”

Louis and Liam took the lead in writing for One Direction’s most recent album, so it’s no surprise that both men plan to immerse themselves in the creative side of the industry sooner rather than later.

Are you looking forward to hearing their new material? Leave your comments below…

Lisa has been watching reality TV for too long now. She won't do any housework unless 'Big Brother' announces it over the tannoy and everything she does has to be put to a public vote!
