Little Mix’s latest single ‘Not a Pop Song’ is a bop – and Liam Payne agrees.

During an YouTube Live, Liam Payne’s fans told him about Little Mix’s new single ‘Not a Pop Song’ so he listened to the tune as fans watched his reaction.

The One Direction star clearly loved the song, nodding his head and having a little dance after pressing play on his phone.

He even gave an impressed little eyebrow raise at the lyrics leading to the chorus.

Looking every inch the Simon Cowell proteégé, Liam summed up: “I like it.”

“I like it when I come on here and get introduced to new songs,” he added. “It’s great.”

Ironically, Little Mix’s ‘Not a Pop Song’ is apparently throwing shade at Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Jade Thirlwall and Perrie Edwards’ former boss Simon Cowell.

Simon of course signed One Direction after the boys were on The X Factor, but Liam seemingly didn’t pick up on Little Mix’s reference to his old boss.

Before ‘Not a Pop Song’ was released a source close to the girls told Metro: “It’s not bitchy – and isn’t meant in a bitchy way at all. They think Simon will see the funny side of it – as they know he loves attention and will think it’s all playful.”

The lyrics include: I don’t do what Simon says / Get the message cuz it’s read / That’s just life it never plays fair / Said to follow any dream, be a puppet on a string / Works for you but that isn’t me / This ain’t another pop song.
