    He looks so happy here! Good for him for following his dreams! Best wishes to you Zayn! Looking forward to your new music! As well as One Direction’s.

    This could be a good thing. Depends on how he handles it.

    Well we’ll see if leaving One Direction was a good move. And if his solo career will be succesful. I honestly don’t think so..

  • Glyn Ruck

    Zayn is not dissing anybody. He is talking about music that is real to him! Has meaning for him. Shows the real him.

    Wishing you all of the very best Zayn. You are an inspiration!

    Unless he’s signing a porn contract I’m not interested…

    I’m so excited for him. His voice never really got to be showcased with the type of music they did in the band. Even if he doesn’t have the same amount of success, he already looks 100x more happy than he had in the band in the past few years.

    Mashup of Zayn’s version of “No Type” with the original. Guess this is what we can expect his record to be like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5iUchaU2PpM

    According to history, no boyband dude ever make it alone, unless they’re Justin Timberlake and Robin Williams, but Zayn had none of their charixma nor their charming personality, so …
    Guess he’s just going to be the next Nick Carter or Brian from Westlife.

    That so called not real music has earned him huge paychecks, big house and tons of fans.
    He’s coming as ungrateful b#$tard who bites the hand that feeds him.

    Dissing his former group only made him losing more fans, instead of earning cool street cred.
    Let’s see if his intended target audience will embrace him and wonder what he will do if those demographics rejected him badly.

  • Kris

    Good for him. Great move. I think he will earn new fans soon! Wish him the best!

  • Glyn Ruck

    Nonsense. His twitter following has increased overnight. He is not dissing 1D. They will all be doing solo activity after year end.

    Since when twitter popularity equal sales?
    Just asked Justine Beeber for latest proof, he has tons of twitter followers but his latest album didn’t even chart on billboard.
    Sometimes people like to follow some celebrity for their entertaining drama, not because they wanted to buy what they sell.

    No one said Twitter following = sales but it is a loose indication of Brand strength. Zayn’s brand strength is huge & I have seen the latest numbers. It’s part of my global job in a very large Multinational Corporate. His brand strength is greater than Twitter following would suggest. Why do you think the fashion houses are chasing him?

    Brand strength does translate into sales with the right product, strategy & management. I stand by my original statement.

    Everything is falling into place. Right management with Stennett, new legal team, good label in the Sony empire, Malay Ho producing him. His talent is not disputed. He’s on the global A list of singers. The only 1D member.

    He is certainly not ungrateful which is why Simon continues to support & help him even though he is conflicted. Simon could not have 1D & Zayn under the same label. Sony Music fortunately has many premium labels. He’s in good company at RCA & is being treated with some urgency that Simon could not give him.
