I always knew 1D wasn’t for me: Zayn Malik
Zayn Malik has revealed he “always wanted” to leave One Direction, quickly realizing the type of music the band were producing “wasn’t for me”.
The band, comprising Zayn, Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson, were formed on The X Factor in 2010.
“I just gave it a go because it was there at the time. I think I kinda always wanted to go. From the first year, I never really wanted to be there in the band.
“When I realised the direction that we were going in, mind the pun, with the music, I instantly realised it wasn’t for me. How do you write a song from five people’s perspective?”
