This is seriously sweet. Zayn Malik may have left One Direction, but their brotherly bond will never be broken entirely. He just can’t help but feel proud of his buddies’ accomplishments!
There’s no love lost between Zayn Malik, 22, and the rest of One Direction. The promising solo artist is really happy to hear about his former bandmates releasing a hot new song, according to a source who spoke to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. You know what, Zayn? We’re excited too!
“Zayn actually thinks the song is pretty good,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “He had a brotherhood with all of them for so long and he knows they are super talented and actually really likes the song. He isn’t going to promote it or anything but he is proud of them on how it turned out.”
This is just so nice to hear. Even if they’ve had their differences, it’s hard to forget the years of friendship and sense of family the 1D boys experienced together — Zayn loves his brothers, and they love him back!
What makes this a bigger gesture of goodwill on Zayn’s part is the fact that “Drag Me Down” is One Direction’s first single since he split from the band in March 2015. He’s glad that they’re doing well without him, and is wishing them the best! The 1D boys dropped the single without any warning on July 31, and we’ve been completely obsessed ever since!
Plus, Harry, Louis, Liam and Niall aren’t the only people moving on; Zayn left his record deal with Syco Music and signed on with RCA to officially start his solo career on July 29. How exciting! Zayn revealed the news by tweeting “I guess I never explained why I left, it was for this moment to be given the opportunity to show you who i really am!
#realmusic #RCA !!”
While we were pretty sure that first hashtag was a sly diss toward One Direction, it seems like that’s not actually the case! Zayn’s all about his dudes and their new song. Now let’s see what he comes up with in the studio! HollywoodLifers and Directioners, do you think Zayn’s reaction to One Direction’s new song is sweet?
