During an interview with Glamour, Zayn Malik stated that an alien was the one to tell him to quit One Direction.
Yes, an imaginary alien was the one to convince the British heart-throb to call quits back in March of 2015. Although the singer claimed that his decision to leave was because he wanted “some private time out of the spotlight,” Malik proceeded to pursue a solo career with RCA Records, and a year later, he debuted his first solo album, Mind of Mine. Mind of Mine generated mostly positive reviews from music critics and even pushed Zayn to be the first UK male artist to have a debut album reach no. 1 in both the UK and the US. In addition to his new LP, Zayn is set to release new music from the soundtrack of the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot and his collaborated piece with electronic duo, Snakehips.
Zayn’s track “Who” from the Ghostbusters film will be released on Friday, July 15 while Snakehips’ track “Cruel” will drop the same day. Check out the preview of “Cruel” here!
Looks like that alien knew what he/she was doing.
