Now that Zayn Malik is working on music outside of his former group One Direction, he’s putting out a very different sound.
British rapper MIC Righteous has released a cover of Rae Sremmurd’s “No Type,” complete with vocals from Malik. The hip-hop flavored track features a driving bass line, with MIC Righteous providing the rapping. It’s a far cry in tone from One Direction’s pop anthems like “What Makes You Beautiful.”
Since leaving the group, Malik has maintained a low profile in the public eye. That is, unless you count that Twitter fight he got into with One Directioner Louis Tomlinson. The latter eventually put the idea of a feud to rest.
The group later sent Malik their love and thanks when accepting the 2015 Billboard Music Award for Top Duo or Group.
