We’ve already heard Zayn Malik, 22, cover Rae Sremmurd’s song “No Type,” but he’s taking it to the next level with a music video. The video was recently leaked — allegedly by Naughty Boy — onto the web, and Zayn looks and sounds great. The music video comes five months after Zayn left One Direction.
The full video was not leaked, but excerpts of the video have shown up on everyone’s Twitter timeline. The black and white video features Zayn belting out the lyrics to Rae’s song. As usual, Zayn’s voice is perfection. But it’s definitely a far cry from the music videos he filmed with 1D! English hip hop duo Krept and Konan also appear in the music video. Watch the videos below.
The cover of Rae’s song featuring Zayn was leaked in June 2015. Zayn reportedly filmed this music video while Zayn was still a member of One Direction. Zayn shockingly left the band in March 2015, and HollywoodLife.com told you EXCLUSIVELY that he was looking to pursue a new rap career.

Zayn Malik: Did Naughty Boy Leak ‘No Type’ Music Video?
There hasn’t been an official confirmation as to who leaked the video, but it appears that former pal Naughty Boy may have had something to do with it. Zayn tweeted on July 13: “@NaughtyBoyMusic you fat joke stop pretending we’re friends no one knows you.” He followed up with, “Someone learned how to upload a video… maybe now he should learn how to use logic ha you ain’t shit but a faker.” The hashtag “ZAYNHASNOCHILL” began trending worldwide after Zayn’s tweets.
Ruh roh. Naughty Boy has stirred up trouble for Zayn over the past few months, getting into nasty feuds with Zayn’s pal Louis Tomlinson, 23. Now it looks like Naughty Boy may have taken things too far if he did actually leak the video.
