In blatant fashion, Liam Payne conveyed his thoughts on his former “One Direction” bandmate Harry Styles’ new music style.
Speaking to Music Choice, the British singer gave his candid thoughts about his ex-comembers’ new singles. Payne lauded Niall Horan’s “Slow Hands,” but gave a thumbs-down to Style’s glam-rock debut single “Sign of the Times.”
“I’ll be honest with you, it’s not my sort of music. It’s not something I’d listen to, but I think he did a great job of doing what he wanted to do. That’s the way I’d put it best, I think,” Payne elaborated.

After the collapse of “One Direction,” the heartthrobs branched out to different genres instead of leaning to their pop roots.
“I think the funny thing is, Harry would say the same thing about me because he doesn’t really listen to hip-hop music, whereas it’s like my song’s more [like] ‘Rack City’ (song by Tyga) and his song is more of a different era to something I’d listen to, I guess,” Payne concluded.
