Liam Payne last week unveiled his long-awaited debut solo single, ‘Strip That Down’. The track, co-written by Liam, Ed Sheeran and Steve Mac, features rap sensation Quavo - founding member of the hugely acclaimed US hip hop group Migos.
Recorded at Rokstone Studios in London, the new single is three minutes and twenty-four seconds of sexy urban pop, featuring a hypnotic bass synth and a sparse 808 beat.
The lyrics mark a new beginning for Liam, reflecting his playfulness, independence and conviction as a solo artist, whilst his vocals demonstrate his inimitable talent for melody.
‘Strip That Down’ featuring Quavo is out now on Capitol Records. More music will follow from Liam this year.
