While most people are recovering from their Thanksgiving food comas, the One Direction star showed off his sculpted chest and rock-hard abs in a gym selfie Friday.
The 27-year-old singer simply captioned the black and white shot, “Downtime.”
Fans went wild for the hunky boy band member, and the steamy photo garnered over 775,000 likes on Instagram in just six hours.
Payne, who is dating X Factor Judge Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, announced last month that he signed a recording contract with Republic Records as a solo artist.
“Thank you so much for accepting me to your roster of amazing artists,” he said in a Oct. 17 tweet.
More recently, the singer teased that he had been hard at work.
“Just finished a busy day in the studio,” he tweeted at the end of October. “May not a be song I release but want to invite you into the writing process hope you enjoyed it.”
