Rap trio Migos have been on a tear since releasing their hit single “Bad and Boujee” back in October, then getting a shout out from Donald Glover (Childish Gambino) at the Golden Globes after their appearance on Atlanta. The hip-hop group made up of rappers Quavo, Takeoff and Offset have since been featured on songs by pop megastars in Calvin Harris and Katy Perry, made some highly talked about cameos at Coachella and will apparently be putting out a collaboration with One Direction’s Liam Payne in the near future.
As reported by Hot New Hip Hop, the group recently did an on-air interview with UK radio personality Tim Westwood. In addition to talking about an upcoming compilation project featuring artists on their Quality Control label, they also let some details slip on what they may have coming out with the famous boy band singer.
“I just came from a video today. My boy Liam from One Direction,” Quavo says around the 8:20 minute mark, as seen in the interview’s video below. “We just shot that. Crazy vid. Crazy visuals. Crazy team. Cool guy, nice guy. It’s goin’ up. I wasn’t even supposed to say that. It’s gonna be a surprise though.”
This would be the first news of an upcoming project by Payne, who would presumably be teaming up with the hip-hop group for his debut as a solo artist. Payne’s former bandmate, Harry Styles, recently released his own debut single as a solo artist with “Sign of the Times.”
