This is what we’ve been waiting for! Zayn Malik is planning a massive tour to promote his new album, according to a new report. The singer is so hyper focused on the tour, he’s holed himself up in a tent in the woods so nothing takes his attention away! We have the crazy details.
Zayn Malik, 22, has been out of the spotlight for a while, but he’s about to crash back onto the scene with a massive tour to promote his new solo music, according to one report. He’s dead serious about his music and to prove it he’s pitched a tent in the forest to avoid distractions. Here’s what we know.
While One Direction is out promoting their upcoming fifth album (the first as a quartet), Zayn is reportedly getting ready to release his first solo record, The Sun reports. They say that Zayn is staying in a tent about an hour and a half outside of Los Angeles, but he won’t be there long because he’s planning a massive tour to debut his new music!
Zayn’s reported plan to share his album with the world is quite interesting, if true. “His plans for launching his new music include visiting several major US cities, playing just one song in each, to showcase his work,” a source tells the site. That would be pretty cool, right?
But what’s cooler is the sound he’s reportedly creating. “The set-up may be basic but it sounds like a mix between The Weeknd and Frank Ocean,” continues the source. “He’s really excited about releasing it and has said how he can’t wait to take on his former bandmates in the charts.” And we would be really excited to hear it! The album will allegedly feature him singing, rapping, and playing piano. Very cool!
Perhaps this is his chance to debut not just new music, but the real Zayn. “His biggest qualm in One Direction was always the fact that no one took his music seriously,” continues the source. “So he wants to prove that he’s more than just a former boy band singer.”
Yeah, we know this one’s far-fetched, but we also know that Zayn originally left the group because he wasn’t handling fame well, so what better place to create his own music than a peaceful forest? Perhaps there he can avoid distractions like ex-fiance Perrie Edwards, 22, calling him a “bellend.” We’ll just have to wait and see, but we have our fingers crossed!
What do you think HollywoodLifers, do you think Zayn’s tour is the real deal? Sound off below!
