Hip-hop trio Migos have revealed they have shot a music video for their collaboration with Liam Payne
Migos have confirmed their collaboration with Liam Payne.
Quavo from the hip-hop trio - also comprised of rappers Offset and Takeoff - has revealed they have filmed a music video for the forthcoming track.
He told the Daily Star newspaper: "I just came from a video shoot with my boy Liam from One Direction.
"Crazy vid, crazy visuals, crazy team, cool guy."
The song is expected to featured on the 23-year-old hunk's eagerly-anticiparted debut solo album in a bid to make something different to his One Direction bandmate, Harry Styles, who recently dropped his new single 'Sign of the Times'.
And, although he is teaming up with Migos - who became popular after featuring on Calvin Harris and Frank Ocean's 'Slide' - sources recently said Liam is not turning to rap and wants to sound like Justin Bieber meets Drake with his new tunes.
An insider previously said: "Working with Migos is a big deal.
"They are one of the most highly regarded hip-hop groups in the world.
"The collaboration will help push his name out beyond 1D fans in the States.
"Liam wants his solo music to sound like a mix between Justin Bieber and Drake
"It's definitely not going to be a hip-hop album. He has worked with so many different producers and artists.
"But what's for sure is that his songs will sound very, very different to what Harry Styles has put out."
Aside from Migos, the heartthrob has also worked with Pharrell Williams, Wiz Khalifa and Juicy J.
While Liam - who has a newborn son, whose name is not yet know, with his girlfriend Cheryl - is busy working away from home in Los Angeles, he is said to still be taking offers on songs for his record.
British pop star Conor Maynard recently said he sent Liam - who is signed to Capitol Records UK - some tracks he has written for consideration to be included.
Liam is said to still be open to more music if it fits what he wants to put out on the album.
Conor told BANG Showbiz: "I've hung out with Liam a lot of times. At the moment I know that he's working on his solo project and I know he's looking for songs for his album. Different sessions I've been in people have said, 'Oh shall we work on some amazing stuff for Liam Payne?'"
