Liam Payne and Harry Styles may have been One Direction bandmates once upon a time, but that doesn’t mean they have to like each other’s music.
 
In an interview with Music Choice, Payne reveals what he really thinks of Styles’ new single, Sign of the Times – and it’s not a rave review.
 
“Harry’s song I heard, and I’ll be honest with you, it’s not my sort of music. It’s not something I’d listen to, but I think he did a great job of doing what he wanted to do,” Payne confesses.
 
Though it may seem a bit harsh, he admits that Styles would probably say the same about his own music; his debut single Strip That Down is set to release on May 19th.
 
“I think the funny thing is, [Harry] would say the same thing about me because he doesn’t really listen to hip-hop music where it’s like my song’s more ‘Rack City’ and his song is more of a different era to something I’d listen to, I guess.”
 
 While he may not have been the biggest fan of Styles’ single, Payne commends his other former bandmate, Niall Horan, on his recent music. “Obviously, Niall had Slow Hands out and he had This Town, which is great, and Niall’s gone down the singer-songwriter route, which is really cool,” commented the singer.
