Zayn's departure from One Direction back in March was surrounded by contradictions. In his official statement, he claimed he left the band because: "I want to be a normal 22-year-old who is able to relax and have some private time out of the spotlight." However, as fans pointed out, the singer immediately began recording his solo career with music producer, Naughty Boy. HMMM.
Now it has been revealed that Zayn has signed a contract with RCA Records, and was congratulated by Simon Cowell on the deal, who said: "We have been working on this for a while and I am pleased to say congratulations to @Zaynmalik on signing with @RCARecords. I believe they are the perfect label for @Zaynmalik’s solo career and I am sure whatever they release together will be special."
Zayn also celebrated by posting this smiling snap:
He then posted a highly interesting hint about why he chose to leave the 1D boys and go solo:
Naturally, fans have taken to Twitter in confusion, and we're kind of there with them. So, who was the Zayn Malik that millions of fans got rich in the first place? Have they been supported a lot of BS for all this time? And what does he mean real music? Come on Zayn, out with it!
Do you think Zayn quit because he was fed up of the boyband music, or for another reason? Tweet us @sofeminineUK!
