Zayn Malik is best known as one of the founding members of the chart-topping boyband One Direction.

In 2015 Zayn parted ways with the band. Zayn’s debut single, “Pillowtalk,” was released in late January 2016 under the name ZAYN and featured his strong vocals over distinctly more adult-themed alt-R&B similar to The Weeknd and Miguel. The single debuted and went to #1 on the Billboard charts.
