The pair took to Twitter on Thursday night (21.12.17) to confirm they have collaborated on a track for the third movie in the erotic thriller franchise, which will be released in January.
Alongside a short clip of the classical-sounding instrumental, Liam wrote on Twitter: Something special #ForYou coming in January...#FiftyShadesFreed @RitaOra (sic)''
And the 'Anywhere' singer wrote the exact same message tagging the One Direction star on her profile.
A message on the official Twitter account of the movie, reads: ''The first single from the #FiftyShadesFreed soundtrack by @LiamPayne & @RitaOra coming in January. #ForYou (sic)''
Earlier this week, the 'Your Song' singer, who plays the sister of lead star Christian Grey [Jamie Dornan], Mia Grey, in the saga and Liam, both shared a picture of them looking glam on their social media channels on Wednesday night (20.12.17), with the movie's name as the hashtag.
They both captioned the post: ''#FiftyShadesFreed (sic)''
The photo sent fans into meltdown guessing whether they have recorded a soundtrack for the third instalment in the franchise.
Liam, 24, follows in the footsteps of his former bandmate Zayn Malik - who quit One Direction in 2015 - after he released 'I Don't Wanna Live Forever' with Taylor Swift for the last movie, 'Fifty Shades Darker'.
Liam's girlfriend Cheryl Tweedy - with whom he has eight-month-old son Bear - will no doubt be envious of her beau working with the 'Lonely Together' singer as in 2015, when they were both judges on 'The X Factor', the former Girls Aloud star said she'd love to jump into the studio with Rita.
At the time, she said: ''I miss working with the girls in the band, so would love to work with Rita now on something. I know it'd be great. She's so funny.''
