Zayn Malik Says He 'Never Really Wanted' to Be in One Direction - Watch Now

Zayn Malik is opening up about leaving One Direction in his first solo broadcast interview on Beats 1 airing on Thursday (January 28).

The 23-year-old singer spoke to host Zane Lowe about how soon he realized being in the group didn’t feel right to him.

“I think I always kind of wanted to go, from the first year, really,” Zayn said. “I never really wanted to be there in the band, I just gave it a go because it was there at the time.”

Zayn added, “I think the boys kind of knew – in terms of the music – that wasn’t my cup of tea… They obviously didn’t want me to leave, but they couldn’t talk me out of it at that point. I’d already made my mind up.”
