In a long interview with Fader magazine Zayn Malik
talks about One Direction
and why he decided to leave his buddies in the band.
Malik says that the main reason as to why he left the band was that he never got to be creative and experiment with the music. If he sang a hook in a R&B style the producers would record 50 more versions of the same hook so that they could choose the one that was the most pop.
He goes on by saying that he in many ways loved his time with the band but the music wasn't him and he would never himself listen to One Direction
. Zayn Malik
is currently recording his first solo album and we suspect that it's something very different from One Direction
- that's at least what his comments indicate.
