Zayn Malik just gave us another reason to obsess over his upcoming new music. He revealed that he’s going to use it to explain his real reasons for leaving One Direction! Here’s what we know.

Zayn Malik, 22, is getting very close to releasing solo music for the first time, and on Nov. 17 he gave us another reason to look forward to hearing it. Apparently Zayn is going to use his music to explain why he felt like he had to leave One Direction. Can you say juicy!? Now we’re even more excited! Here’s what Zayn said.

Zayn dropped a little preview of his new song “Befour” on Nov. 17, and now there’s yet another reason to be excited to hear it. Zayn sat down for his first official interview since leaving 1D with Fader, and a teaser of the interview explains that his music will be very revealing. “I don’t feel like people really know what I’m going to give them, musically,” Zayn said. “And once they hear it, I feel like they will understand me a little bit more, and they’ll understand why I did what I did, and why I left the band, and why I had to write this s**t down.” Um, that sounds a lot like drama to us.

To hear more about One Direction’s thoughts on Zayn leaving the band, head over to iTunes and download the HollywoodLife podcast for free!

We could have already guessed that the music would be deeply personal and have at least a little to do with his former band. Hello – “Befour?” As in the number of guys he left behind in One Direction? As in their most recent album title?! It definitely doesn’t seem like Zayn is going to be playing it coy once his new music is out, and while we’ve heard dozens of reasons why he left, we can’t wait to get his official perspective on parting ways.
