Declaring Horan’s decision to “go down the singer-songwriter route” as a “really cool” move, Payne then revealed that Styles’ choice of sound wasn’t “my sort of music.”

Meanwhile, Liam Gallagher recently seemed to ‘diss’ Liam Payne’s solo work.

After he praised Harry Styles in interview with NME, former Oasis frontman Gallagher told The Sun on Sunday: “I can spot a fake a mile off and Harry Styles seems like he wants to bring real music and change his direction.”

He then alluded to Payne by saying: “At least he’s not gone rap like the other one. How did that happen? Did they flip a coin and he said, ‘Listen, I’m doing the rap one’.”
