Very cheap and basic but strangely catchy! It's like Ed meets generic US R&B.

I liked him the most from the One Direction guys but he just released the worst song out of all of them. Very disappointing.

It was ment to be a safe 100% hit, but it turned out to be a non-event tune that will be forgotten quite fast IMO. As I already said, he should have stayed silent... I will probably play it few more times, but overall I don't need it in my life.

Yeah...his lane is cutting too close to Zayn (who as of now is doing it A LOT better).

He either needs to go full stream urban, or just pop. Zayn sound works for him but this....this is eh. Although I could see it being successful.

I'd say this is better than Niall and Louis' stuff but it's still not very good. More than anything it's the lyrics in this that are atrocious

Haha, I was wondering if someone would point out the nod to Shaggy - such a random song to mimic.

Agree this is the weakest of the post -1D singles so far.

It's okay. Nothing serious and obviously musically much weaker than "Sign Of The Times" or Niall's songs, but to be honest i would play this here much more the others.

And as much as i like Ed (one of the few ones on this board, i know), i think his 'backing vocals' are too strong on this.

Just proves anyone 1D member can release some basic tune and end up #2 on ITunes, Sign Of The Times is so much better than this

Sorry guys but this is by FAR the worst solo One Direction related song i've heard yet. :-? It sounds so desperate to be a hit, for me it actually fails in that department automatically. :lol:

Yes, Liam is sexual but he needs to bring the songs with him to complete the whole pop package. :x

Liam was my favourite member of One Direction and I think he has so much more potential than this song promises. Trash.

The hand choreography. :lol: The performance looks so off. Surprised at how stable his vocal is throughout the whole song though.

Real question, is he really into R&B and Hip-Hop music because seems like he's just using it to become cool and trendy? All this time I thought Zayn was the only one in 1D who's genuinely into that type of music and Liam seems to be more of a Pop/Rock guy.

I thought Liam was more into dance, wasn't he the one doing the dubby remixes of their songs and doing DJ sets?

I could only watch 38 seconds of that performance I had second hand embarrassment. Bloody awful.

i think you guys are being to hatey and critical here.

From that performance visually he is the most commercially accessible of the lot. His vocal is pretty solid as well and also he seems to have a bit of personality.

As a package this is probably the 2nd best one from 1D. I honestly don't think Zayn will last 3 Albums unless he changes his personality or decides to open up.

Liam just needs a better 2nd single tbh everything else is going for him.
