1D PERSONA: Sweet & smiley CURRENT MO: Partying in the club LEVEL OF SOLO SUCCESS: Brilliam
Payne went for a club vibe with his new sound, collaborating on singles with Quavo and Zedd. Sadly, he seems to have embraced the hiatus. In his first solo song (which hit No. 1 on the Billboard + Twitter Trending 140 chart), he sings, “You know I used to be in 1D / Now I’m out free / People want me for one thing / That’s not me.” Still, other lines reassure fans that he’s still the Payne we know and love: “I’m not changing the way that I used to be.”
