On 25 March 2015 Zayn Malik left the band. Five became four when Zayn Malik left in March, saying that he wanted to start living his life like a normal 22-year-old. Some chance of that happening. One Direction’s millions of girl fans were upset
Following his departure from One Direction, Malik signed to record label Syco label and is expected to released his first solo album in 2016. He is engaged to Little Mix star Perrie Edwards.
