Limestone is receiving some backlash on social media for choosing to collaborate with TikToker Dixie D’Amelio on a new Christmas single literally nobody asked for.

“That’s so embarrassing for him,” one TikTok user said about the collaboration. “Liam is a full-on celebrity who was in one of the biggest boybands EVER. He could get literally anyone to work with him and he chooses a 19-year-old TikToker who has had no vocal coaching and has no music career experience besides one song that she didn’t even write, she just sang.”

“It’s making him seem less credible of an artist, and I think people already take him the least seriously out of the 1D boys,” she continued. “Someone get this man a new manager because who thought this was a good idea.”

“This angers me,” someone else wrote on Twitter. “She does absolutely nothing and gets everything handed to her. Like this is THE king Liam Payne. Just no.”

Others compared Limestone to Jason Derulo, the 31-year-old pop singer who has leveraged TikTok and its many influencers to make himself relevant with the youths of today (Gen Z). Desperate or just smart marketing?

As some may remember, JLo and Maluma recently featured Charli D’Amelio (Dixie’s younger sister) in their music video for “Pa Ti.” Jamie Lynn Spears also featured TikTok stars in the Zoey 101 reboot music video for “Follow Me (2020).” Yes. It’s as cringeworthy as it sounds.

I have fallen in love with TikTok and I’m excited to have some fun leading up to the holidays with Dixie and her family…
As we approach Halloween and Christmas during such a whirlwind year it’s important everyone looks out for each other, so please join in the fun with us.
