Zayn Malik May Not Be Able to Release New Music for the Next 2 Years
Apparently, Zayn Malik’s new solo career isn’t going so well.
Just months after leaving One Direction, the singer has allegedly hit a bump in the road as rumors circulate that his new music is being held hostage and won’t be released in the next two years.

Mic Righteous also insisted that Naughty Boy was the one who informed him about Malik’s problem and that the producer was in the studio when Malik was recording the track, suggesting that NB is lying about his lack of association with the cover.
