It looks like the ongoing feud between Malik and his former band is over. Even after the public split from the group, the 22-year-old still has high praise for his former bandmates.
He listened to their new single, “Drag Me Down,” and shared his thoughts on Twitter about One Direction’s first song without him.
Proud of my boys the new single is sick. Big love. 🙂 x

That same day, HollywoodLife reported that Malik was impressed with the track.
Zayn actually thinks the song is pretty good…He had a brotherhood with all of them for so long and he knows they are super talented and actually really likes the song.
His congratulatory words come just days after he announced a new record deal with RCA. He also explained why he left the band: “I guess I never explained why I left,” he tweeted. “It was for this moment to be given the opportunity to show you who I really am! #RealMusic #RCA.”
Meanwhile, Malik was spotted in West Hollywood, Calif. on Friday (July 31, 2015) enjoying a night out at Bootsy Bellows nightclub.
