Hinting at something, Hailee Steinfeld? The singer made an announcement via Twitter on Sunday, December 29, that she would be releasing a new track called “Wrong Direction” on January 1, and fans think the new tune is aimed at her ex Niall Horan and his former boy band, One Direction.
Of course, the 23-year-old’s followers couldn’t help but inquire more about the upcoming bop. One person wrote, “Is this song about @NiallOfficial??? We stan!! Spill the tea. #OneDirection more like #WrongDirection,” while another echoed, “Oh s—t at Niall Horan.” A third person chimed in, writing, “Hailee is releasing a diss track about Niall?”
That same day, the Dickinson actress uploaded many snapshots from the past year on her Instagram Stories. The photos were from several events including the VMAs and Met Gala, making music in the studio and spending time with her loved ones. “Thankful for all the lessons, the love, the heartbreak and the memories,” she captioned a photo of a sunset on the ‘gram.
The brunette babe and the Ireland native, 26, were first linked in January 2018 after they were spotted attending a play together in London. However, in December 2018, the duo called it quits since the “Nice To Meet Ya” crooner “didn’t have time for a relationship,” a source told Us Weekly at the time.
Meanwhile, Niall dropped a new song called “Put a Little Love on Me” in early December and clearly, he had someone specific on his mind. Hailee? Perhaps! “This could potentially be my favorite song I’ve ever written,” he told The Sun. “I’d just gone through a breakup, and it was all very real. It was very easy to sit down at the piano and speak and see what happens.”
These days, the handsome hunk is officially back on the market and is not dating his close friend Selena Gomez. “Do I have a girlfriend? I don’t, no,” he revealed during an episode of Australia’s Hit 90.9’s “Brekki Crew” podcast on December 3. “I’m very much single. Very much single.”
For now, it seems like Hailee is busy releasing new tunes, acting and living her best life. Guess we will have to wait and see what kind of tea she spills about her ex!
