Liam Payne Talks Worrying About Shawn Mendes + Upcoming Collaborations

I really felt like Liam and I connected here!  I'll think you'll see in this 10-minute interview that this guy is happy to discuss pretty much anything.  

Besides loving his song 'Strip That Down' with Quavo and of course his new song 'Familiar' with J. Balvin, which is a guaranteed summer smash btw (seriously, what an earworm!), I honestly didn't know too much about Liam except for the fact he has a beautiful partner (Cheryl) with whom they share an adorable son with.  Oh, and he was in that little old band called One Direction.  Yeah, that.  

With that said - it's a cool thing to get to know someone as an individual.  Upon first Google search, I knew Liam and I would either become besties or the interview could get real weird, real fast.  

There was an article from Metro UK that stood out to me like a sore thumb:

Opening up about his mental health, the Familiar singer candidly confessed he was terrified at the thought of becoming famous again – as a solo singer – following his experience with the band.

As someone who's struggled with anxiety/depression for a good part of my life, it's been a mission of mine to be open about my experiences and to help others be more comfortable discussing and/or asking for help.  Demi Lovato has been very vocal about mental health issues as well (Demi, I see you!)   

Liam mentions below that after hearing the first line of Shawn Mendes' new song - he reached out.  He's taking almost a mentor role and it's great to hear that they both seem to be in really good places in life.  Great discussion - feel free to check it out below:
