While You Were Sleeping: Zayn Malik Just Signed With His New Record Label

Are you ready for Zayn's new music?

While you were probably dreaming of him, Zayn Malik took to Twitter to clear why he left One Direction just 4 months ago. You might remember him saying he was leaving the band to become a normal 22-year-old. But it looks like there's another reason why.

And this isn't something that happened just overnight. According to Simon Cowell, this record deal is something they've been working on for some time.

To give you an idea of RCA Records' roster of artists, A$AP Rocky, Alicia Keys, Bleachers, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Daughtry, Foo Fighters, Foxes, Hilary Duff, Imogen Heap, Justin Timberlake, Kelly Clarkson, Kodaline, Magic!, Miley Cyrus, Pentatonix, Sia, Tinashe, and Walk the Moon are just some of them. Zayn is definitely in good company. He's ready to make "#realmusic" as he calls it. Are you ready to meet the real him?

Not to say that One Direction isn't producing real music. (Hello, have you heard the track that's rumored to be on their 5th album?) Maybe Zayn just wasn't feeling the kind of music they were putting out as a band. And we understand. You do you, BB.

TBH, we're quite curious as to how this album is going to sound like. Zayn has a beautiful voice (we miss your high notes, El Maliko!) and with the right producers, we're confident that he'll come out with a great first solo record. Here's hoping we won't have to wait too long.

Are you happy about the big news or were you still hoping Zayn would come back to One Direction? Leave a comment to share your reaction or tweet us @candymagdotcom!
