Zayn Malik signs solo record deal

Zayn Malik signs solo record deal

When Zayn Malik left One Direction, he started dropping hints that a solo career was in the works, and now it’s official. Zayn Tweeted yesterday has officially signed with RCA Records, sharing a black-and-white photo of himself signing the paperwork at RCA.  Zayn also explained why he never gave fans an explanation for leaving One Direction, saying it was because he was waiting “for this moment to be given the opportunity to show you who I really am! #realmusic.”  Beyond that, we really don’t know what he’s working on for RCA, or when we can expect new music from him.  But Zayn is in good company, quite literally. Alicia Keys, Mark Ronson, Justin Timberlake and A$AP Rocky are among the acts signed to the label, which is part of Sony Music.
