Zayn Malik: I Never Wanted to Be in One Direction

Posted Thursday January 28, 2016 9:42 AM GMT

He’s one of the biggest pop stars in the world, and yet Zayn Malik tells Zane Lowe that it was never his desire to be in a boy band.

In his new Beats 1 Radio interview, the former One Direction singer explains, “I always kind of wanted to go. From, like, the first year really. I never really wanted to be there, in the band. I just gave it a go because it was there at the time. I couldn’t give my opinion because it didn’t fit the grain of what we were as a band, and what we represented.”

Malik also muses, “I think the boys kind of knew, in terms of the music, that wasn’t my cup of tea. They were aware of that. They obviously didn’t want me to leave. But they couldn’t talk me out of it at that point. I had already made my mind up, so I just left.”
