History could be about to repeat itself as the former boy band singer takes his career in a new direction, just like Robbie Williams before him.
Zayn Malik has come a long way in the five years since he hid backstage during 'X Factor' bootcamp, too afraid to dance in front of the cameras and judges. These days, the 22-year-old heartthrob is used to performing for tens of thousands of screaming fans in One Direction's sell-out arena tours.
Zayn could be heading in the right direction
And now, it emerges, he's taking the bold step of going solo, just months after sensationally quitting the band in March. Zayn has bagged himself a new record deal with RCA, home of Justin Timberlake and Alicia Keys, and he's promising to show a new side to himself, tweeting '#REALME' after signing the contract, and posting a photo at the studio.

Is The Justice Collective's 'He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother' The Underdog In The Fight For Christmas Number One?
The Justice Collective have finally released their tribute single 'He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother' in remembrance of the tragic disaster at the Hillsborough Stadium in Sheffield.
Perhaps best known for his partnership with Robbie Williams, The 'Songs For A Boy EP' sounds pop songwriter Guy Chambers away from his comfort-zone in this stunning collaboration with vocalist Sophie Hunter.
Opening track 'Epitaph' oozes moodily and forebodingly from a blend of low guitars, bass, drums and the depth of atmospheric organ chords, later encapsulating a simple yet atmospheric and brooding piano solo. Sophie Hunter's vocals are low and smooth, somehow carrying both the darkness of the Black Rebel Motorcycle Club but simultaneously the beauty of the likes of Kathryn Williams or Slow Moving Millie in her beautiful vocal tone. 'House Of Wood' then opens with delicately picked low acoustic guitar which accompanies Hunters' lush smooth vocals before the beat and bass kick in to pad out the sound with an equally as on-edge and minor-tainted blend as the EP's opening track, but similarly just as stunning.
'Heal' opens with harp scales forming a bed beneath picked guitars and continues as a truly beautiful, gentle and down-tempo ballad that, true to its title and lyrics, has a real feeling of peace within its' blend; a kind of resolution to the uneasiness of the preceding two tracks. The EP is then concluded by the gentle, cello-flanked 'The Angels Sing' which sounds great similarity to 'House Of Wood' in its' oozing atmospheric blend.
