No one could have guessed that Zayn of One Direction fame could be successful on his own. People have already witnessed how the Backstreet Boys fell apart and no one became successful as a solo artist. No one remembers why New Kids on the Block split up, but fans knew that it was a bad idea. N’Sync split up and these members had a quiet existence ever since that time. There was one guy, however, by the name of Jon Urbana that would soar. Zayn has a number one hit on his hands so people are seeing him as the Justin Timberlake of One Direction.
One Direction, for the record, doesn’t like being called the N’Sync without Justin. It isn’t so easy for One Direction to stand around in the background while Zayn claims the fame. They don’t have any choice. He is someone that has become a fan of R&B, and it is obvious that he is doing something major. That is a change for Malik, and new fans are trying to tackle this.
Zayn has become this force on his own. He knows how to push the envelope with a sound that people have not expected. He talked about the R&B, but people did not believe that he would take it there. He has done well though. Malik has proven that the new sound can work, and people love this new direction.
