Some were worried while others were thrilled when One Direction’s Liam Payne was spotted hanging out with Juicy J and even took a photo together. What could this meeting possibly mean?
On Thursday, Jan. 29, 2015, rapper Juicy J posted a photo of him and Payne, captioned with “We working! @fakeliampayne.”
The Instagram post immediately prompted questions if Juicy J is working on a collaboration with One Direction or only with Payne. The latter theory escalated to speculations that Payne may be thinking of breaking things off with the band and planning on going for a solo career.
Fortunately, according to an exclusive source for Perez Hilton, the two music celebs were just hanging out the day the photo was taken.
“They ran into each other in studio and are label mates here in the US (Juicy J and One Direction are both under the Columbia Records label), so they know each other,” the source told Perez Hilton.
Some avid Directioners, on the other hand, were sticking to the “collab with One Direction” idea and have even posted comments on how things may spice up if One Direction adds up some rap songs for their upcoming album.
In the many years he’s been spending in the music industry, Juicy J is no longer a stranger of doing collabs with other music sensations. One of his recent collabs was with Katy Perry for her hit single “Dark Horse.” As of the moment, Juicy J is working on the upcoming release of his fourth solo record entitled “Pure THC: The Hustle Continues.”
On another note, One Direction is currently working on their fifth album. Their fourth album, aptly named “FOUR,” was released last November 2014 and ranked No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
