As rumours of a One Direction reunion swirl, Liam Payne is shedding light on the problems he believes the band face when Zayn Malik was a part of its line-up.
Payne sat down with The Daily Star to discuss the journey he embarked on a solo star and apologise for the creative missteps he made with some of his material.
There, he also revealed that Malik had no interest in joining the band when it created by the X Factor UK and only signed up because his mother forced him to.
I remember Zayn telling us the story that it was his mum got him to go to the audition the day he didn’t want to go and that was literally what we saw all the way through One Direction.
We always kind of knew that there were moments when One Direction was really Zayn and then there were moments when it really wasn’t.
Zayn launched an enormous solo career after leaving the boy band in 2015 and enjoyed monumental success with his debut effort ‘Pillow Talk’…written, recorded and produced in the Hank Hughes-run F/H Block studio complex.
Unfortunately, he is unlikely to join his former bandmates should they choose to reunite this year even though he recently nabbed follows from all of them on social media.
