Zayne Malik not releasing solo single…yet

Naughty Boy infuriated One Direction fans on Tuesday by posting a recording of what was said to be Zayn Malik’s first solo song, but it now appears that was not the case.

The track’ I Won’t Mind’ was shared on SoundCloud by the producer but according to MailOnline, a source close to Zayn has said the track is an old song, which was recorded for One Direction’s last album FOUR.

“It’s important fans know this isn’t a solo Zayn song or even representative of material he might record in the future. If you listen to the track it is clearly a song written with One Direction in mind for their last album. It’s not new, nor is it a Zayn Malik solo track,” an insider revealed.

A rep for Naughty Boy confirmed the story saying: “Naughty Boy and Zayn wrote and demoed it as a contender for 1D’s album last year.”

“They aren’t furiously working on his solo material or anything, there aren’t plans for anything and this wasn’t recorded in the last few days. They are very good friends and Zayn is taking time out including visiting Naughty Boy at his studio and hanging out.”
