Wes Nelson and Liam Payne appear to be making new music together.
The 24-year-old Love Island star-turned-musician-turned-solo-artist has come on in leaps and bounds since releasing his debut single ‘See Nobody’ with rapper Hardy Caprio in 2020.
These days, Wes is making moves after reaching out to the biggest stars – as he works on a song with former One Direction heartthrob Liam, 28.
Over on his Instagram story, Wes recorded Liam in the studio and captioned the clip, “We’ve got another @liampayne.”
The singer sat on his phone scrolling while Wes filmed him to show his fans to get them in the mood.
Liam looked up and motioned to the camera before going back to his phone.
The reality star then filmed herself writing with a microphone emoji: “I’ve been busy busy”.
“Now it’s almost time…” he added.
It seems Wes is collaborating with all the big music stars, as he suggested he was making music with Mysterious Girl hitmaker Peter Andre back in January when they posed for a photo together.
Since reaching the finale of series four of the ITV2 dating show with ex Megan Barton-Hanson, Wes has changed career paths and successfully made his mark in the music world.
In October 2019, the star appeared on The X Factor: Celebrity as part of a group made up of former Love Island stars Samira Mighty, Zara McDermott and Eyal Booker called No Love Lost.
The following year, Wes announced that he had signed a solo recording contract with EMI Records, and in September 2020 he released his debut single, See Nobody.
Wes reached fame in April 2021 with his hit single “Nice to Meet Ya feat. Yxng Bane” at #3 in the UK Singles Chart.
Since rising to fame, the musician has lost interest in material possessions.
Wes – who became a millionaire at 21 – gave away his £145,000 Mercedes last year.
He later confirmed that he gave the car to his father and brother, and he spoke on The Private Parts podcast about how unsatisfactory materialism is.
He said: “My father and my brother have my car now. I’ve realized that once you have one thing, you want the next one anyway. It’s actually so dead.
“This is the first time in my life that I haven’t driven – and I love driving. Because I know what I’m going to be like, I want to get a new one, and I want this one.
“The more you have, the more money you’re likely to make. They come hand in hand, but at the same time it sucks. You don’t want more, it just comes from doing more.”
The Mirror has reached out to Wes’ rep for comment.
