We all know that One Direction is the best thing going, but it’s always a #blessing to see the boys venture out into new territory. Whether it’s songwriting collaborations or (gasp) solo features.
Queue the inevitable hiatus rumours.
Producer Naughty Boy has confirmed that Zayn Malik will have a solo feature on his next album. Naughty Boy was the producer behind Sam Smith’s first massive hit “La La La” in 2013.
I can’t deny the fact that we have made music together. […] Zayn is going to feature on my next album. […] We’re making music and having fun. This is just like a side gig and I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it.Naughty Boy
Since 2013 he has worked with the likes of Wiz Khalifa, Emeli Sandé and Ella Eyre.
So, is our Zayn gunning for a solo career? Only time will tell. He could very well be the Justin Timberlake of One Direction.
