Zain Javadd Malik, better known as Zayn, was born to a Pakistani father and a British and Irish mother. He has three sisters. Zayn received an Islamic upbringing.
He has been dating Gigi Hadid since 2015. Gigi is a model with international acclaim.
Zayn was part of The X Factor. He was eliminated from the competition but got the chance to rejoin along with four other competitors who would form the band One Direction.
One Direction was a huge success. It became one of the best-selling boy bands ever. The band became a huge success with young girls, teens, and women and also received acclaim from the critics for the music they were making. It became a cultural phenomenon internationally and led to millions of fans. 1D, as it is known colloquially, reached the top of the charts and was the cause of much hysteria from crowds.
Zayn left the band in 2015, much to the chagrin of the fans, but continued his music career signing with RCA Records. 1D continued for one year after Zayn’s departure and is currently on hiatus, without any defined dates, although the members have pursued other careers. One Direction was more of a pop act, but Zayn introduced more R&B sounds into his work as a solo artist. His first album was Mind of Mine. The lead single was Pillowtalk, and the artist became the first British male singer to reach number one in the UK and the US with his debut.
He collaborated with Taylor Swift and Sia for his two collaborative singles: I Don’t Wanna Live Forever and Dusk Till Dawn. His second album, Icarus Falls, came in 2018, and the third one in 2021, Nobody Is Listening.
Zayn received recognition for his vocals and lyrics, even during his time in One Direction. However, when he became an independent artist, he leaned in more into maturity and more complex sound and texts, creating a new image for himself.
Some critics considered Zayn, the strongest singer in One Direction.
