Happy 25th Birthday to ex-One Direction member, Zayn Malik.

Zayn Javadd Malik (born as Zain) is an English singer and songwriter from Bradford, West Yorkshire.

His musical journey began when he entered The X Factor as a solo artist in 2010. He was unfortunately one of the many eliminated, but was lucky enough to have been called back along with four others to perform as a group.

And thus, One Direction was born with band mates, Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan. The bands debut song was ‘What Makes you beautiful’ and there was nothing but success that followed.

They released four albums together over the years, and in 2015, just before their visit to South Africa and the release of their fifth album, Zayn decided to quit the band and signed a solo recording contract with RCA Records.

His music style is now edgier and on the alternative R&B style. Ge released his first solo album Mind of Mine in 2016 with the hit song Pillowtalk. As a solo artist he has received several awards already such as American Music Awards and Billboard Music Awards.

Zayn grew up with older sister, Doniya, and two younger sisters, Waliyha and Safaa. He is currently dated super model Gigi Hadid after splitting from long time girlfriend, Perrie Edwards of Little Mix.

If Zayn wasn’t star stunner that he is now, he would have pursued his career as an English teacher!
