Naughty Boy has confirmed that full-time hair idol and part-time One Direction choreographer Zayn Malik will feature on his next album.
(That's a picture of the pair of them together in a studio environment alongside Emeli Sandé).
"I can't deny the fact that we have made music together," Mr Boy told The Sun (as quoted here). "Zayn is going to feature on my next album."
Pre-empting some of the reactions that might come his way perhaps via the medium of Twitter, he added:
"We're making music and having fun. This is just like a side gig and I don't think there's anything wrong with it."
Mind you, he then said this, which isn't going to make people too happy really.
"It's a good time for Zayn to showcase what he can really do. I don't think that is being fully exploited with the band because there are five people and it needs to be balanced out."
May we please make AN APPEAL FOR CALM AT THIS DIFFICULT TIME. Thank you.
