Liam Payne stopped by Vevo’s New York City studio to perform stripped-down versions of his new single “Stack It Up” and his Jonas Blue collaboration “Polaroid.”
Payne released the Ed Sheeran co-penned, bouncy “Stack It Up” last month. For his Vevo performance, Payne maintains the upbeat flare of the financially ambitious track, sans A Boogie Wit da Hoodie’s verse. For his solo version of the Jonas Blue and Lennon Stella collaboration “Polaroid,” Payne transforms the sweeping EDM-pop track into an emotional ballad that highlights his vocal range.
