Zayn - Former One Direction Star Forays into Solo Artistry with Mind Of Mine
Best known for rising to fame as one fifth of the world's biggest boyband, Zayn Malik made his shock departure from the group on 25th March 2015 - a day that will forever be etched into the memories of One Direction fans across the globe.
But good news for devotees of the former 1D star: Malik's back with a bang in 2016, with a newly trimmed mononym and a whole new artistic direction. Fresh from releasing his record-breaking debut album Made of Mine, he'll no doubt be embarking on some solo tour dates very soon... Watch this space and get your Zayn tickets on StubHub.
Zayn - Boyband Star Turns R&B Icon
In 2015, poor old Malik was in a pretty bad place. Fed up with fame, relentless touring and releasing coterminous manufactured pop albums with his One Direction bandmates, he shocked the world by bowing out of their On the Road Again Tour, citing stress and exhaustion. The oldest member of 1D eventually quit the band for good in March 2015, expressing his desire to be a "normal 22-year-old who is able to relax and have some private time out of the spotlight".
Besides being known as the 'Bradford Bad Boy' of the award winning five-piece, Malik was also noted for being the member with the strongest, most diverse vocal range. A solo career was pretty much inevitable. After enjoying a year out of the limelight, he surprised fans by releasing R&B slow jam 'PILLOWTALK'. Flaunting his glass-shattering falsetto against some rather racy lyrics proved to be a winning formula, and his first solo single soared straight to the top of charts across the globe.
Releasing his debut album Made of Mine in March 2016, Malik has proven it's possible to rise from the ashes of boy band fame. Diverting from the pure pop sensibilities he's come to be recognized for, he's now going back to his roots, switching to a more urban sound packed with suggestive, seductive libretti. Interlacing R&B, hip hop, reggae and Bollywood melodies throughout tracks like 'Befour' and 'Lucozade', his new album hit the number one pot on the US Billboard Hot 100 - a musical victory not even One Direction have managed to achieve thus far.
While we're not sure how his former bandmates feel about their old friend's success, one thing's for sure - it's going down a treat with the fans. Buy Zayn tickets on StubHub and see this newly independent soloist perform his unaccompanied hits live in the flesh.
