Liam Payne and J Balvin Drop “Familiar” Music Video

Also how are these artists suddenly looking more alike than ever?!?! Or should we say… familiar?

Is it hot in here, or is it just Liam Payne and J Balvin‘s scorching hot new music video together? (Maybe both.) This dream duo just dropped the video for their Spanish/English collaboration track “Familiar,” and it’s even more incredible than any of us could have imagined. ¡Dios mío!

Now usually, one of the first rules of watching YouTube videos is Don’t Read the Comments Section. I know we all do, but sometimes people can be so negative and rude that it ruins the whole experience. For this video particular though, I feel like the entire experience is best summed up by some of the witty, silly, and insightful fans who shared their thoughts below the video. So I’m sharing some of my favorites here with you now.

“I wasn’t expecting Liam to be shirtless. My wig flew across the Atlantic ocean,” user Selma Malik posted. They’re not wrong! We bet a lot of fans have been left bald by this wig-snatching performance.

“Liam Payne? J Balvin? J Payne? Liam Balvin?” user Marci Trecerrat posted. TRUE: with their fresh buzz cuts, the guys are looking more like twins than we ever thought possible before. “How does Liam manage to look like the artist he’s collabing with? In the Get low, he looked like Zedd and here he looks like J.Balvin 😱,” commenter Pat Malia added, noting that this is a total trend with Liam.

“This is so Justified JT, and i’m here for it,” commenter Soy Panda shared, echoing a lot of fans noticing similarities in Liam’s style to Justin Timberlake. That’s not a bad compliment at all!

“What’s wrong guys…like how many songs got released by different singers in the last 3 days…now i cant decide which song should i get addicted to🤔🤔…,” user Shraddha Bhadouriya pondered. The stan life is a struggle, but there is room on our playlists for all!
