Merry Christmas – wait, what? Liam Payne decided he didn’t want to wait for December to release his new holiday song, which Dixie D’Amelio joined for her first song since making her music debut with ‘Be Happy.’

While Liam Payne’s enthusiasm for Christmas is to be commemorated, the timing of “Naughty List” is a bit suspect. Arriving on Oct. 29 – that’s two days before Halloween – Liam, 27, seems to have gotten his holidays mixed up. But, as “Naughty List” shows, Liam isn’t afraid to do the kind of things that gets him on Santa’s bad side. And that wasn’t the One Direction alum’s only surprise: TikTok star Dixie D’Amelio, 19, joined the track, marking this her second song ever!

Liam announced the new holiday song on Oct. 27 and he gave his fans on TikTok an exclusive sneak peek at the song. “I’ve got a new single,” a feathered haired Liam said – well, wrote – while sitting in front of a giant CGI snowflake. “It’s called ‘Naughty List.’ And it’s a Christmas song…” During the preview, even Liam seemed a big befuddled himself at the whole endeavor. The snippet of the song details about how Liam and an unknown lover got on the naughty list. “Must have been the way we kissed / Santa saw the things we did / and put us on the naughty list.” This, of course, raises questions about Kris Kringle’s voyeuristic tendencies and a possible North Pole surveillance state. The snippet also raised speculation that the female voice on the track belonged to Dixie (which turned out to be spot-on).

Eagle-eyed fans searched “naughty list liam payne” on Apple Music, and the results listed Liam and Dixie as artists, per Just Jared. Dixie is best known for being one of the biggest names on TikTok. She’s currently the 8th most-followed individual on the platform with 41.7 million followers. Her sister, Charli D’Amelio, sits at No. 1 with 95.1 million. Dixie joining Liam wouldn’t be out of the ordinary. She, like many social media stars before her, made the jump into music in June 2020. She released her first song, “Be Happy.” As of the last week of October, it has over 51 million streams on Spotify.

After fans figured out the mystery vocalist, Liam took to Twitter and wrote, “Well… I had this whole grand plan about announcing who was featuring on my new song #NaughtyList on Friday but you did it again and found out! You’re all detectives! I’m so excited to have @dixiedamelio join, so say hello, give her a warm welcome like I know you guys can!”

It sounds like Liam and Dixie have more plans in store for fans. In a follow-up tweet, Liam wrote, “I have fallen in love with TikTok and I’m excited to have some fun leading up to the holidays with Dixie and her family… As we approach Halloween and Christmas during such a whirlwind year it’s important everyone looks out for each other, so please join in the fun with us.” Liam then announced he’ll unveil their “plans for the next few weeks” during a TikTok Live on Halloween, Oct. 31st at 10 p.m. GT.

This is not the first Christmas song from the former One Direction member. In 2019, Liam released “All I Want (For Christmas),” an original song that he included on his LP1 album. He also recorded a version of the Dean Martin classic, “Let It Snow,” for Spotify Singles: Christmas Collection. “I think it’s acceptable to listen to holiday music whenever you like, really,” he said when answering a few questions for Spotify. “Whenever you are feeling festive, is what I would say.”

Liam Payne attempted to have a virtual catch up with Harry Styles in this hilarious TikTok video, which some fans thought was a teaser for a 10 year reunion! See before & after pics of the star.

Liam Payne revealed his grown out quarantine beard in a new TikTok video, and it’s a whole new look! The 26-year-olds’ prominent facial hair was front and center as he attempted to have a FaceTime catch up with former One Direction bandmate Harry Styles, 26, in the short clip posted on Wednesday, July 1. The video began with a FaceTime ring to “H” — how Harry is apparently listed in Liam’s phone — as the awkward chat began.

“Hey man! Hey, hey, how’s it going? You good?” Liam began the chat as very smiley Harry stared back at him. “Oh yeah!” Harry simply answered back, as he continued to flash his ear-to-ear grin back to the “Both Ways” singer. While we were definitely sensing a bit of awkwardness in the air, Liam quickly pointed out that the chat was, in fact, getting “weird.” “Someone’s got the giggles. Alright, this is just getting weird now. I’ll speak to you later,” Liam said as the short call ended.

Liam posted the sweet video to his TikTok account — which already boasts an impressive 1.1 million followers — and added the caption “How’s it going?” The short clip has already been viewed 1.3 million times, and fans immediately thought that it was a teaser for a 10 year reunion, which would be on July 23. “OMG, a July 23 sneak peek? Don’t tease us like that!” one fan wrote, while another gushed “DONT MAKE ME CRY ITS JULY 1ST IM NOT GONNA HAVE ANY TEARS FOR THE 23RD.” Another added, “SOMETHING IS GOING TO HAPPEN ON THE 23RD JULY.” Specifically, July 23, 2010 marks date that One Direction formed on the British version of The X Factor. The group — which then consisted of Liam, Harry, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik, came in third place that year, but are easily the most successful act out of the show to this day.

Liam’s previously teased reunion plans in an April interview. “We’ve got a ten-year anniversary coming up, so we’ve all been speaking together a lot over the last few weeks, which has been really nice,” he told The Sun. “There’s a number of different things that we are all working on to try and make happen, and people are forwarding emails around,” he also teased.

Liam Payne – Familiar (feat. J Balvin) lyrics

[Intro: J Balvin]
J Balvin, man
Liam Payne
My G

[Verse 1: Liam Payne & J Balvin]
It’s simple, you dip low
Your hips roll, you do the Calypso
An intro is all that I need, oh, yeah
Y empiezo primero
Tú sabes lo que me refiero
De cero, sabes que estoy pa’ ti (ti, ti)

[Pre-Chorus: Liam Payne]
Ooh, ooh, I just wanted to get your name
But if it’s cool, I wanna get inside your brain

[Chorus: Liam Payne]
Can we get famili-famili-famili-familiar? (yeah)
I’m feelin’, I’m feelin’, I’m feelin’, I’m feelin’ ya (hey)
What’s on your mind for later tonight?
Let me be the one to fill it up
Can we get famili-famili-famili-familiar?
I’m feelin’, I’m feelin’, I’m feelin’, I’m feelin’ ya
What’s on your mind for later tonight?
Let me be the one to fill it up
Can we get

[Verse 2: Liam Payne]
Your waistline, the bassline (bass)
In real life, don’t wanna no FaceTime
‘Cause great minds, they think just the same (hey, yeah)
You’re shaped like vibrato
A model or some kind of bottle
Well, pour up ’cause I want a taste (a taste, oh)

[Pre-Chorus: Liam Payne, J Balvin]
Ooh, ooh, I just wanted to get your name
Sólo quería tu nombre, bebé
But if it’s cool, I wanna get inside your brain

Let me be the one to fill it up
Can we get famili-famili-famili-familiar?
I’m feelin’, I’m feelin’, I’m feelin’, I’m feelin’ ya (feelin’ ya)
What’s on your mind for later tonight?
Let me be the one to fill it up

[Bridge: J Balvin, Liam Payne]
Ah-ah-ah-ah
Solamente tú y yo
Ah-ah-ah-ah
Solamente tú y yo

[Verse 3: J Balvin]
Quisiera que tú y yo nos familiaricemos
Un poco de química y el party prendemos
Olvida las criticas, así nos entendemos
¿Qué tú crees si en tu mente nos metemos?
Señorita, qué necesita
Sería mucho mejor si participa
Así de lejos no, mejor cerquita
Yo voy a hacerte todo lo que me permita
Y sabes que lo que te pones te queda bien (queda bien)
Me caes mucho mejor que un billete de cien

[Chorus: Liam Payne]
Can we get famili-famili-famili-familiar?
I’m feelin’, I’m feelin’, I’m feelin’, I’m feelin’ ya
What’s on your mind for later tonight?
Let me be the one to fill it up
Can we get famili-famili-famili-familiar?
I’m feelin’ I’m feelin’ I’m feelin’ I’m feelin’ ya
What’s on your mind for later tonight?
Let me be the one to fill it up
Can we get

[Outro: Liam Payne]
Ah-ah-ah-ah
