Word is that Zayn Malik left One Direction because he wants to start a solo career and become the ‘next Drake’.
According to Hollywood Life, he has been listening to a lot of Drizzy’s music over the past year, and the Canadian rapper’s success was a major factor in Zayn’s decision to start a solo career.
And Zayn think he has Drake’s significant talent when it comes to rapping and singing on the same songs.
A source said:
He’s really been listening to a lot of Drake’s stuff, and has been inspired by his work and wants to channel a little bit of that.
I’m sure he’d have success farting into a Pringles tin, if I’m brutally honest. But we’ll see how it pans out!
