Over 50,000 people have deserted Zayn on social media after Naughty Boy released a snippet of what was thought was a new track ‘I Won’t Mind’ which turned out to be just an old demo track.
The post came after the news that Zayn had decided to leave the band to pursue a solo career, midway through their world tour.
An insider has said: ‘It’s important fans know this isn’t a solo Zayn song or even representative of material he might record in the future. If you listen to the track it is clearly a song written with One Direction in mind for their last album. It’s not new, nor is it a Zayn Malik solo track.
