Zayn Malik's First Solo Song, 'I Won't Mind,' Hits The Internet

Less than a week after leaving One Direction, Zayn Malik has made moves to get his solo career off the ground. Over the weekend, he was spotted heading into the studio with UK producer Naughty Boy, who uploaded a demo called “I Won’t Mind” on Monday night.

It’s an acoustic folk song with lyrics like, “We are who we are when no one’s watching/ And right from the start, you know I got you,” and even in demo form it’s a total departure from One Direction’s heavily produced pop tracks.
