Directioners, get ready for this one. HollywoodLife.com discovered tweets from September 2014 suggesting that Zayn and Naughty Boy were already hard at work on their new song ‘I Won’t Mind’. Was Zayn planning his exit from 1D for months? You might want to grab some tissues before seeing these tweets!
Zayn Malik, 22, you’re breaking our hearts! Just one week after he quit One Direction, Zayn’s angelic voice was heard on record producer Naughty Boy’s demo, “I Won’t Mind.” However, it seems like these two have been in cahoots for months on the project, which leaves us to believe that Zayn may have been planning to leave Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan and Liam Payne, behind for awhile.
Naughty Boy & Zayn Malik’s Music: Were They Working Together Since September?
We’re onto you, Zayn and Naughty Boy! The record producer tweeted the name of the sexy R&B song song on Sept. 16, 2014, which gets us thinking they were working together on the song for awhile.
@zaynmalik i won’t mind.

Coincidence? We think not, because on Sept. 21 2014, Zayn tweeted out the song’s exact lyrics!
So baby tonight I got you on my mind ,

Wow — this is so shocking that Zayn and Naughty Boy, 30, were already teaming up together as early as last September. Of course, we knew that Zayn had plans to pursue a solo career at some point, but was he going behind his bandmates backs the entire time? Did they know he was working on new material while the band was still together? We have so many questions!
Since Zayn’s departure from the band, Naughty Boy has been taunting the rest of the 1D boys by suggesting he “saved” Zayn from the boy band. He retweeted a video of a creepy song that says “Zaughty” — obviously a reference to himself and Zayn –will rise. We respect the new direction Zayn is going in, but come on, Naughty Boy, this is just plain old mean!
Louis found this to be very offensive. He fired back on Twitter at Naughty Boy calling him an “inconsiderate pal.” You can see their back to back diss war here!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Do you think Zayn and Naughty Boy’s tweets were suspicious? Do you think Zayn wanted to leave 1D in September? Sound of below!
