It looks like it was worth the wait!
Liam is the fifth and final member of One Direction to release solo music. So what can we expect from his upcoming album?
Well, a source recently revealed to The Sun: ‘Liam wants his solo music to sound like a mix between Justin Bieber and Drake. It’s definitely not going to be a hip-hop album. He has worked with so many different producers and artists.
‘But what’s for sure is that his songs will sound very, very different to what Harry Styles has put out.’
Hurry up, Liam!
