Liam Payne Hints at 'Fifty Shades Freed' Collaboration With Rita Ora

It seems like a rite of passage these days for any high-profile pop star to lend a song to the Fifty Shades of Grey franchise, and One Direction's Liam Payne might be next. 

In a semi-ambiguous Instagram post, Payne posted a photo of himself posing in a suit next to Rita Ora -- who also has the same picture on her account (she's also an actor in the franchise). The caption reads "#FiftyShadesFreed" which just so happens to be the title of the next installment in the Fifty Shades of Grey series, which will be released in February. This could be a possible hint to a new single from the two artists.

Payne isn't the only One Direction vet to have a song on the Fifty Shades soundtracks -- earlier this year Zayn and Taylor Swift released "I Don't Wanna Live Forever" for the Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack. Nothing has been confirmed (Billboard has reached out for more info), but it's pretty clear something is in the works.
