Zayn Malik debuts his new Grey/Blue color hairstyle while leaving '1 Oak' in West Hollywood, California on Aug. 11, 2015.

Millions of teenage girls around the world would argue Zayn Malik is smoking. In a new photo posted on his Instagram page, Malik is smoking for real. 

The former One Direction star channels the great Bob Marley in an uncaptioned new black-and-white photo in which he's toking on what doesn’t appear to be a tailor-made cigarette.

Zayn Malik's Solo Album: 10 Collaborators He Should Call

Malik seems relaxed at these early stages of his solo career. He recently signed management (Turn First Artists) and recording deals (RCA), while his remaining 1D bandmates prepare for the release of a fifth album... and a split from band duties in 2016.

Prior to leaving 1D, Zayn and his then-bandmate Louis Tomlinson were busted last year when a video of the pair smoking a rolled up “joint" went viral.
