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.”
This means Zayn had these thoughts BEFORE he joined the band, so we wonder what was going through his head during that crazy time. So many feelings!
