Liam Payne Announces “Stack It Up” Featuring A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie

Liam Payne's 'Strip That Down' Video
Try another genre? Liam Payne's 'Strip That Down' video is as awkward as the song.

Liam Payne will relaunch his solo career with a new single called “Stack It Up” featuring A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie. He unveiled the cover art, which finds him looking pensive against a yellow background, on social media and shared the September 18 release date. Given the inclusion of the NYC rapper, it’s a fairly safe bet that “Stack It Up” is a return to the urban-pop sound of “Strip That Down.” Which makes sense. After all, that Quavo-assisted bop cracked the top 10 in the US, UK and Australia.

Since “Strip That Down,” the One Direction superstar has flirted with a variety of genres including bro-pop (“Bedroom Floor”), EDM (“Get Low” and “Polaroid”) and even Latin music (“Familiar”). None of it has really clicked — at least in the US — and his debut EP, First Time, failed to chart. With any luck, “Stack It Up” will get things back on track. Liam’s debut album has been a long time in the making and his fans are hungry for a complete body of work. Check out his announcement below.
