Zayn Malik Working With Producer Naughty Boy

Producer Naughty Boy is working with Zayn Malik, who immediately hit the studio to reportedly work on his solo career after quitting One Direction and breaking millions of teenage hearts in the process.
Naughty Boy said, to The Daily Star, "Me and Zayn became mates at the BRITs and were in the studio every other day. He's going to be a really talented songwriter. It's up to the producer to launch an act and give them their own career."
The Sun notes that Simon Cowell, who put One Direction together on X Factor, would retain the rights to anything Malik does as a solo artist, so he'd still be in the 1D fold.
A source said, "Zayn is now the most in-demand solo artist in the world. There's huge excitement as he's the first member who will be able to release on their own. Simon was very understanding about him leaving the band, but quickly made it clear he would stay a Syco artist for his future projects. He'll now be able to make sure any releases are timed so they don't clash with anything by One Direction."
Zayniacs should at least be happy that Malik is still working on music even though it's not with Harry and Liam and Louis and Niall.
