Sometimes you need to take a risk, and Zayn Malik did just that when he left One Direction.

In a new interview with GenFM, Zayn knew early on he had to cut ties with his bandmates to pursue his dreams.

“When I was probably about 16 so, yeah, a long time ago. It’s been a fun process finally being able to do it and put all my ideas down.”
