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.”
