Zayn Malik Speaks Out in Revealing Billboard Cover Story: 'I'm Not Censoring Myself Anymore'

Malik shared the news via Twitter early Sunday morning (Jan. 24), tweeting a shirtless photo -- presumably the single cover -- along with the release information for the song. 

While Malik hasn't shared any additional info about what this track will sound like, he previously stated that his upcoming album will have an R&B vibe, as opposed to the pop-y sounds of One Direction

"It doesn’t feel like choreographed pop," RCA chairman/CEO Peter Edge previously told Billboard about his solo sound.
