Zayn Malik Reveals He’s ‘Surprised’ At How Well His Solo Career Has Taken Off
When it comes to One Direction, world domination is something they achieve on a daily basis (even during this hellish hiatus of theirs).
But clearly, Zayn Malik underestimated just how loyal his fans would be once he went his own way last year – because he’s apparently ‘surprised’ by just how much he’s slaying his solo career so far.
Chatting to Beats 1 about the huge success of his debut single PILLOWTALK, the singer explained: “It was really surprising to me. I kind of didn't set out with the intention to be as successful as it was.
“When it did well I was surprising myself. With each thing I'm putting out I feel more confident and it gives me new ideas.
“I just take everything one step at a time."
Well, that’s just a little bit modest for somebody who debuted at Number One on Billboard’s Hot 100 (you know, that thing not even 1D managed to do).
But hey, if it makes Zayn more self-assured in his pursuit to become a superstar in his own right, then we’re definitely on board.
HURRY UP, MIND OF MINE.
