Zain Javadd Malik aka Zayn Malik is internationally famous an English singer and songwriter. His unique sing style and strong vocal brought for him International acclaim. Born and raised in Bradford, West Yorkshire, in 2016 he released his debut studio album Mind of Mine by adopting a more alternative R&B music style. He became the first British male artist to debut at number one in both the UK and US, with his debut single and debut album. Some of his mega hit singles include “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever”, and “Dusk Till Dawn”.
As we know that he auditioned as a solo contestant for the British music competition The X Factor in 2010. After being eliminated as a solo performer, he was brought back into the competition along with four other contestants, to form the boy band that would later be known as One Direction. In March 2015, he left the group and signed a solo recording contract with RCA Records. But the latest is, in his last interview before the split of One Direction back in 2015, had come forth expressing his thoughts about the reason behind his departure.
Back on 25 March 2015, Zayn announced his decision to quit by stating,
“I’d like to apologise to the fans if I’ve let anyone down, but I have to do what feels right in my heart. I am leaving because I want to be a normal 22-year-old who is able to relax and have some private time out of the spotlight. And I know I have four friends for life in Louis, Liam, Harry and Niall. I know they will continue to be the best band in the world.”
Zayn Malik Revealed Actual Reason Of Leaving Band
Now in his latest interview he revealed the actual reason behind split with the band, which was the alienating feeling he had. In his interview he stated,
“There was just a general conception that the management already had of what they want for the band, and I just wasn’t convinced with what we were selling. I wasn’t 100 percent behind the music. It wasn’t me. It was music that was already given to us, and we were told this is what is going to sell to these people. As much as we were the biggest, most famous boy band in the world, it felt weird. We were told to be happy about something that we weren’t happy about.”
Adding further, the singer confessed that One Direction’s music is not something that we would listen to.
“Would you listen to One Direction, sat at a party with your girl? I wouldn’t. To me, that’s not an insult, that’s me as a 22-year-old man. As much as I was in that band, and I loved everything that we did, that’s not music that I would listen to. I don’t think that’s an offensive statement to make.”
