Like Harry Styles, Liam Payne is also very shirtless for solo debut

Do these One Direction boys even own shirts?

May 19, 2017

Shirtlessness permeates Harry Styles’s solo debut. He’s topless on both the front and back cover. And hey, Harry Styles is doing pretty great, right?

rub a dub dub, harry styles in the tub…

Well not one to be outdone, fellow (former?) One Direction-er Liam Payne unveiled his first solo single late last night and, would you look at that? It seems he’s also misplaced his shirt.

Maybe it’s intentional – like some kind of Tumblr fantasy – or maybe these boys are both just, like, super warm all the time. Maybe, like Milhouse in a photo booth, Liam’s shirt just fell off. Or maybe, like Jimbo Jones, it was just, like, chafing him.

Regardless, we’re sure their fans don’t mind.

(Check out Payne’s first single, “Strip That Down,” below. It features 2017’s busiest guest rapper Quavo in the hook.)
