"I was 14 which is so young to start in that process", Liam said.

Although we love these two individually, we never thought they would cross paths except at the occasional Jingle Ball, and the former One Direction is making us think that a future duet could actually be a possibility.

The "Strip That Down" hitmaker has already collaborated with J Balvin, Quavo and Zedd so far, but teased there will be more artists featured on his album.

'When the band started our break I struggled with the idea of becoming famous again, it scared the living daylights out of me.

'So I had to figure out a way to make it work for me - rather than me work for it'.

"There have been some tough times", he explained. He was 17 when he became one-fifth of One Direction, joining Niall Horan, Harry Styles, Liam Tomlinson, and Zayn Malik on "The X-Factor"-formed band". After giving birth to son Bear with boyfriend Liam Payne, 24, last year, and refusing the help of a nanny so that she could be a hands-on mother to their son, Cheryl said it was important for Payne to cook meals for their family so she could have time to rest with the baby.

Now all five original members of the group are working on solo music.

After going solo, Payne released his first single in 2017. The singer was speaking to the radio station for Mental Health Awareness Week in the United Kingdom.

It was "amazing" to be back on stage, Liam Payne said today as he performed live with J Balvin during the "Good Morning America" Summer Concert Series. "I like it for calming your state of mind so instead of doing mad cardio where it intensifies it, it calms you down", Cheryl said.

Continuing, the singer said that he had collaborated with a "good mix of handsome people" on the record.
