One Direction‘s Harry Styles and Meghan Trainor recently wrote a song together. Trainor said she is not sure whether the song will be released, but the pop singer mentioned the experience was “unbelievable.” Trainor spoke to BBC Radio about the songwriting session, “I wrote a song with Harry. It was unbelievable. He’s a very, very talented songwriter- I was very impressed.” Trainor described the song as a “cute acoustic love thing.” The two pop singers also recorded a rough demo of the song. During an interview with UK’s Sun, Trainor added, “I was worried he’d just be a 20-year old boy, so I walked in with a prepared verse and chorus. But he gave me very poetic, mature lyrics.” She continued, “I was like, ‘well, damn Harry, you know what love is.'” 

Harry Styles is no stranger to songwriting. He has written songs for his band One Direction, as well as other artists.
