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!

They say time heals all wounds, but it has been ages - is heartbreak exempted?

I have forgotten when was the last time we shared a smile - the last time when I saw the glow in your eyes and the last time when you whispered an I love you to me. I have forgotten when, but here I am - writing to you again.

I do not know if you will read this or you will just add this one to my proses and poems that you left unread, but you see, I am still hoping. I am mailing the pain of us to the gods out there - hoping they can take the pain away. I should have gotten over you, but instead of forgetting and accepting our ending, I am writing about us in tissue sheets, carving about us on trees, telling about us on the back of my journals, hoping that a thousand or a million write ups about us, can make me forget about what happened.

I am writing, waiting for the point where I can no longer write anymore, for I have none to tell - but when? I have nothing in me anymore, but the memories of us - and no matter how hard I try put those to its own grave, the memories grow back like lilies in the swamp - painful and beautiful at the same time.

No matter how hard I try to silence those and put it at the back of my mind, those ring back, playing like the favorite song we used to listen. They say heartbreaks turn into poetry and that is what happening to us - but poetry should be dulcet and dreamy, why does ours sound like pain and agony? They say time heals all wounds, but it has been ages - is heartbreak exempted? Darling, I guess not.
