One Direction Zayn

Zayn Malik taking on a new ‘direction’

Zayn Malik of One Direction is taking on a new direction for Naughty Boy’s second album. The British vocalist is currently working solo on a side project with the English DJ.

In a recent interview with The Sun, Naughty Boy stated: “I can’t deny the fact that we have made music together. That’s music we’ve made for One Direction and also that Zayn is going to feature on my next album.”

But fans have no need to worry about a split from the hit boy group. Although Zayn is working on other projects, his loyalties lie with One Direction.

“We’re making music and having fun. This is just like a side gig and I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it,” Naughty Boy said.

This isn’t the first time One Direction and Naughty Boy have crossed paths. The boy-band and DJ worked on a track titled “One Chance to Dance” for their most recent album, Four, but it didn’t make the final cut.

What do you think of this side project? Will Zayn do justice without the four other boys to back him up? Let us know in the comments.
