Speaking to GQ in 2019, Liam said: “For Zayn, he loves music and he’s an amazing talent.
“He genuinely was the best singer in One Direction, hand on heart, out of all of us.”
He went on to talk about Zayn’s incredible popularity on streaming sites.
The 27-year-old said: “His streaming numbers are ridiculous but I do think he misses out on the performance side a bit, you know. He can’t seem to get past that part.”
