Malik, the former One Direction singer, said in an interview, “I always wanted to go, from the first year really,” adding, “I never really wanted to be in the band. I just gave it a go because it was there at the time.”
Rolling Stone reports Zayn Malik saying, “I realized I couldn’t put any input in,” adding, “I couldn’t give my opinion on this or that because it didn’t fit the grain of what we were as a band and what we represented.”
Zayn also mentioned, “I think the boys knew, in term of the music, that wasn’t my cup of tea. They would try and facilitate things for me I could sing RnB ad-libs here and there, that was nice.”
The former One Direction singer is happy about his first single “Pillowtalk.” He said, “I’m feeling happy because I finally got to do what I wanted to do. It’s like waiting for Christmas when you have that build up.”
Pillowtalk is from his new album “Mind of Mine.” The album is said to contain 17-18 songs. He said he wrote around 46 or 47 songs, among which 17 or 18 got selected.
