Liam Payne's going it alone

The One Direction singer's signed a solo deal with Capitol Records UK.

He hasn't forgotten about the other 1D lads and their fans though saying they will always be family to him. 

However, Liam feels it's time to show what he can do as a solo artist. 

Last March the internet nearly melted when Zayn Malik announced he was leaving the band permanently to be a normal 22-year-old. 

Since leaving, Zayn's single Pillowtalk debuted at the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100.
