Zayn Malik is reportedly going solo with his music and is expected to release his first solo album in 2016 under Simon Cowell’s label.
Zayn Malik quit One Direction this week following his exit in the Worldwide tour due to ‘stress’, but now it seems the 22 year-old will go solo.
Zayn is reportedly going solo with his music career but Simon Cowell will still have rights to his first solo releases.
An insider told The Sun: “Zayn is now the most in-demand solo artist in the world. There’s huge excitement as he’s the first member who will be able to release on their own.
“Simon was very understanding about him leaving the band but quickly made it clear he would stay a Syco artist for his future projects.
“He’ll now be able to make sure any releases are timed so they don’t clash with anything by One Direction.”
Zayn Malik is expected to release his first album as early as 2016.
