A dif­fer­ent di­rec­tion for boy band de­fec­tor

Winnipeg Free Press - Section D - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Zayn Ma­lik is leav­ing One Di­rec­tion be­hind and strik­ing out on his own.

The for­mer mem­ber of the pop­u­lar English-Ir­ish boy band, whose de­par­ture from the group ear­lier this year caused a huge stir among their very de­voted fans, has of­fi­cially signed with RCA Records.

Ma­lik took to Twit­ter on Wed­nes­day to share the news, along with a photo of him­self sign­ing the pa­per­work at RCA.

He tweeted that he never gave fans an ex­pla­na­tion for leav­ing One Di­rec­tion, and it was be­cause he was wait­ing “for this mo­ment to be given the op­por­tu­nity to show you who I re­ally am! #real­mu­sic.”

The singer didn’t give any in­for­ma­tion about what he’s work­ing on, or when we can ex­pect new mu­sic from him, but he did retweet mes­sages of sup­port from his fans.
