Zayn Malik Wanted To Leave One Direction Since Year One (VIDEO)

Zayn Malik opened up about his split with One Direction in an interview with Beats 1.

He said: “I think 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 and then when I realized the direction we were going in with the music, I instantly realized it wasn’t for me because I realized I couldn’t put any input in; I couldn’t give my opinion on this or that because it didn’t fit the grain of what we were as a band or what we represented. So that’s when it became frustrating for me, that’s when I had to be like, I’ve got to start thinking about myself.”

The full interview airs on Thursday at 9 a.m. PST on Apple Music.
