Not so long after leaving One Direction, Zayn Malik signs a solo record deal with RCA Records! The singer says that finally the world will be able to see the ‘real him’.
When Zayn Malik was about to quit One Direction he said that he just wanted to be a ‘normal 22-year-old’, but what do we see now? Yeah, the photo that shows Malik signing the solo contract with RCA Records, which Zayn posted himself. It’s quite interesting how signing the contract is going to help him to become ‘a normal 22-year-old’?
Zayn shared a tweet,writing:
I guess I never explained why I left, it was for this moment to be given the opportunity to show you who i really am! #realmusic #RCA !!

RCA Records is a part of Sony Music. Among those, who have also signed the contract with the RCA are Alicia Keys, Mark Ronson, Justin Timberlake and A$AP Rocky.
During the time when Malik was the part of One Direction, Simon Cowell was his producer. Cowell was one of the first who congratulated Malik on his new contract.
I believe they are the perfect label for Zayn Malik’s solo career and I am sure whatever they release together will be special.

It turned out that Malik had been also working with Frank Ocean’s producer Malay, who posted pic of Zayn with his daughter, writing:
Benefits of the job. My daughter gets to meet my co-workers, one [of] who happens to be one of her favourites what an amazing soul #zaynmalik
After Malik left the band, he had been spending a lot of time in the studio with Naughty Boy, whose real name is Shahid Khan. However, it seems like that collaboration failed as Zayn called the La La La producer “a fat joke” in his numerous tweets.
