Bebe Rexha, collaborator on 'Back To You':

  • “Louis is simply the cutest and coolest of them all. The shyest too. Very shy. He is very cool, has no ego, a very relaxed person and I loved working with him because he never, in any situation, made me uncomfortable at all. He is always very nice and nice to me.” (tracklist.com.br)

  • "He’s just so chill, down to earth, and cool. He knows what he wants, and he doesn’t let the little things get to him. He’s just very calm, with no ego, and I think that’s when the best stuff comes out." (YoungPost)

  • "Working with Louis on 'Back To You' was honestly an amazing experience. He was so kind, so sweet and we filmed the music video in Doncaster and it was really interesting. [...] He’s very humble and very sweet and very kind." (Girlfriend Magazine)

  • "What I loved about him was he was so humble, and it was actually startling because I've met people who haven't been near the level of fame that Louis has experienced, yet he was one of the most humble people I've met, and it was so nice to be around that." (Billboard)

Digital Farm Animals, collaborators on 'Back To You':

  • He's a really cool guy and it seemed to fit. He really liked what I was doing and I'm a big fan of his music. [...] I never thought I'd be working with a member of One Direction. It's very very weird but it's amazing. He's like a really really cool guy! I'm happy to be working with him. (EDMSauce)

  • “I’m really proud of that one. I was working with (Manchester-based songwriting collective) The Six, and one of them is a phenomenal keyboardist. We were in a '60s-era mindset, jamming, and came up with that melody. We brought it to [Louis] and personalized it for what he does.” (Billboard)

  • "Louis is amazing. He was so professional, very quick. Super easy to get on with and he's just a really talented guy." — Nick Gale (DFA) talking about Louis

 

Matoma on Working in the Studio with Louis

“I can’t really tell too much. I remixed Perfect for One Direction and Louis wanted to do something so we went to the studio to connect and had some fun. My impression is he’s a passionate, talented person and a really nice guy. The big thing is that he is humble and down to earth so maybe something will come.”

“He was a super nice guy and I’d love to work with him again for sure, but you know how the industry is, like, he’s probably in the room with hundred of different collaborators or producers. So I just cross my fingers and hope I did a good impression, spread the love, positivity, and good energy. It was very nice to meet him because you always have seen them on television or read about them, but to actually meet them and see that they’re actually just regular people- [He was cool and awesome to work with in the studio?] Yeah, yeah.”
