From the moment One Direction even thought about going on hiatus, the rumors have been non-stop.

Especially after Zayn Malik made an exit, the questions started swirling despite the boys promising fans they will be back. Would Harry Styles be next? Or maybe Liam Payne? Would Louis Tomlinson focus on his budding record label instead? And will Niall Horan have time with his new golf management company?

We may not have all the answers, but Payne took to Twitter to clear a couple things up after a tiny snippet of a collaboration with rapper Juicy J leaked a few weeks ago.

His series of tweets clarified that he has no intention of going solo (at the moment) and the leaked track wasn’t even for himself:

There you have it, Directioners. Let’s take a collective deep breath now. Our favorite mic-flipping, falsetto-singing member isn’t going anywhere. He just likes to have a bit of fun in the studio from time to time.
