Liam Payne celebrates his freedom from One Direction on debut solo single “Strip That Down,” featuring Migos rapper Quavo. “You know, I used to be in 1D – now I’m out free,” he croons over pulsating synth-bass and chants that recall DJ Mustard’s minimalist production style. “People want me for one thing/ That’s not me.” With a thumping beat and Payne’s catchy little “yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah” hook, “Strip That Down,” featuring Quavo easily becomes a summer hit. Certainly helps that it’s already #1 on iTunes!
