Liam Payne Hosts A Sultry Dance-Off In ‘Familiar’ Video


Fri, May, 4 by

Things get super steamy when Liam Payne hosts a late-night dance off in the new video for “Familiar.” The 24-year-old strips it down in the video for his latest track, which features Colombian reggae singer J Balvin. This dynamic duo makes their way from hosting a seductive dance off in an outdoor parking lot, to throwing it down inside a Miami nightclub—all while surrounded by gorgeous girls, of course.

But the best part of the video? Definitely the scenes with a shirtless Payne showing off his sultry side (and washboard abs) in this Latin-inspired tune. Watch the full video below.

“Familiar” is set to appear on Payne’s upcoming debut solo LP, which he has yet to announce a track list or drop date for. The forthcoming album follows One Direction’s 2015 hiatus, and will likely feature the string of singles that he has released this past year, including “Strip That Down,” “Bedroom Floor,” and “For You,” which was recorded for the Fifty Shades Freed soundtrack with Rita Ora. Thus far, all we know about Payne’s upcoming record is that it’s slated for release later this year. But we can anticipate that it’ll feature more club-friendly collaborations, ballads, and slow jams, if his past singles are any indication.

Success isn’t on the decline any time soon for this U.K. singer. Of all his former bandmates’ solo careers, Payne still holds the crown for most successful post-One Direction single thanks to his triple-Platinum track “Strip That Down,” which featured Quavo. Although Zayn Malik’s “Pillowtalk,” Niall Horan’s “Slow Hands,” Louis Tomlinson’s “Back to You,” and Harry Styles’ “Sign of Times,” were mega hits, none of the singles compared to the success of “Strip That Down,” which was co-written by Ed Sheeran.
