Liam Payne and French Montana's First Time


Liam Payne, British pop star of One Direction fame, released the simmering R&B collaboration “First Time“with French Montana this week. The video takes us on a night time tour of New York City filled with regret. We cruise the city through Central Park, subways, empty streets and bars as Payne mourns the loss of a love. The beautiful blonde woman he is missing seems to reconnect with him at the end or does she?

The song and the lyrics are the stars of this video. Payne is super seductive in his vocal delivery. The lyrics are wonderfully revealing and flirty. It is a very sexy premise too, thinking about “first times.” You can’t help but let your own first times glide in and out of your mind. As expected French Montana delivers just the right hip-hop ingredients to make this a great groove. The Latin undertones are woven in beautifully, just the right addition, never overpowering the song.

After “Strip it Down” we were definitely hooked and now we are seduced again in a smoother and sweeter way.
