Fans should prepare for some hip hop heat from One Direction's Liam Payne and Three 6 Mafia founding member Juicy J in the very near future. 

Let's back it up a bit though. Before Zayn Malik broke the hearts of millions of teenage girls and that "extended hiatus" announcement, Liam made one oh-so-mysterious move by collaborating with Juicy J in late January. They worked on seven records that night, as per an interview with MTV News, but we haven't heard a peep about them since, well, earlier this week.

On Monday (December 14), one inquisitive Directioner couldn't help but wonder what the heck happened with their songs and the rapper was happy to provide an update. Please make note of the flame emojis.

Maybe their team-up won't be so head-scratching after we hear the final product. After all, this is the same man that lent his special touch to Katy Perry's monstrous "Dark Horse" in 2013. Let it all sink in for a few moments.
