Conor Maynard on Liam Payne's solo material: 'He's taking the R&B route'
Chatting to Britain's Daily Star newspaper, Maynard explained that he believes the 1D heartthrob is close to finishing his debut solo album and has always wanted to write for him:
"We have had sessions where we wrote stuff that can go to Liam Payne, for his album, because every now and then we do a session that won’t be for me, it will be for someone else and Liam Payne is someone we have wanted to write for. I haven’t actually spoken to him in a while, I don’t know how close he is to finishing his stuff but I don’t think it will be long now."
He added: "The guys I’m working with have sent off tracks to him that he’s heard, he might not know it was me who wrote it though. He is taking the R&B route. By what I’ve heard it is very much that style. I heard tracks he has been sent to record for it and they’re good.”
Back in November, producer James Newman teased that Payne's solo material has a distinct Justin Timberlake vibe: "It’s an urbany funky type of thing, JT vibes, it’s early days but it’s fun."
