Liam Payne Says 'Leaked' Juicy J & Wiz Khalifa Song Is Just a Demo: 'I Do Not Have a Single'
"Guess I need to guard my projects better ... They don't even let you finish these days," the One Direction singer tweets.
It appears that Liam Payne is moving in a new direction -- at least on the weekends.
On Wednesday (April 20) -- three months after Payne teased his Instagram followers with a short snippet of what appeared to be a new R&B song -- TMZ posted a Juicy J and Wiz Khalifa track featuring the One Direction singer. But Payne quickly took to Twitter to let fans know the song is just a demo.
The leaked audio features Payne singing a catchy, Auto-Tuned chorus and includes some lyrics from Juicy and Wiz that might make Directioners blush. In a series of tweets, Payne clarified that the song is not a single and said he needs to "guard my projects better."

Back in December, Juicy J confirmed a collaboration with Payne in a tweet when he told a fan that his song with the One Direction singer would be "coming soon." The two artists spent time in the studio together around the same time along with producer TM88, and this leaked demo could be the product of that session.
Billboard has reached out to a rep for Juicy J and Liam Payne for further comment.
