Everything To Know About Gigi Hadid’s Boyfriend
Zayn Malik is a singer-songwriter best known for being a member of the English boy band One Direction. Throughout his musical career, Malik has been praised for his incredible voice, his stage presence and his ability to add emotion to whatever he’s singing. Arguably One Direction’s best vocalist, it was no surprise he went on to have a successful solo career as well. In addition to being a musical sensation, Malik is known for his relationship with Gigi Hadid. Malik has been Hadid’s boyfriend for nearly three years and they seem to be a very happy power couple. Malik has a net worth of $65 million dollars while Hadid has a somewhat less impressive net worth of only $13 million dollars.
In 2010 the world was introduced to what would become one of the biggest boybands of this generation. When Malik auditioned for the reality-competition show ‘The X Factor’ his entire life changed and he was instantly put on track for his career. Malik was looking for an experience when he auditioned for the seventh series of the show, hoping to accomplish his dream of becoming a singer. While Malik originally intended to be a solo artist, judges Simon Cowell and Nicole Scherzinger matched him up with Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, Harry Styles and Liam Payne, thus One Direction was formed. The group shot to super-stardom soon after appearing on the show, quickly becoming a fan favorite. Their success on the series earned them third place and a record deal. One Direction’s debut album ‘Up All Night’ was released in November of 2011 and topped the charts in over 15 countries. The first single from the album, ‘What Makes You Beautiful’, was an instant hit, and the song still gets played on the radio today. The group released two more singles from ‘Up All Night’, both of which became top ten hits in the United Kingdom and helped introduce them to the world. One Direction would go on to release three more albums before Malik chose to leave the group to pursue his career as a solo artist. There was controversy surrounding Malik’s choice, rumors swirling of a rift between him and the rest of the band, but Malik said they were supportive of his decision and they understood his need to go out on his own. One Direction disbanded after releasing only a single album without Malik, and the remaining members have all pursued solo careers since, following in Malik’s footsteps. He’s credited with being the first to bravely branch out on his own, paving the way for his former band mates to do the same.
Pillowtalk and Mind of Mine
In 2015, after five years of performing with One Direction, Malik chased after his initial dream – a solo career. He made a change from the bubblegum pop his group sang and adapted an alternative R&B sound for his debut album ‘Mind of Mine.’ His new music style was more reflective of his interests and Malik as a person in general. The first single, ‘Pillowtalk’, was met with endless praise, making Malik the first male British artist to debut at number one in both the US and the UK. ‘Mind of Mine’ received positive reviews from critics and audiences, where his new music style and perfect vocals were celebrated. The following year Malik released a collaboration with Taylor Swift titled ‘I Don’t Wanna Live Forever’ for the ‘Fifty Shades Darker’ soundtrack. ‘I Don’t Wanna Live Forever’ was called Malik’s most impressive musical performance yet. His vocals and ability to sustain notes while in a falsetto stunned critics, and it’s been said he was the real shining star of the song. In 2017 Malik was featured in another collaboration, this time with singer-songwriter Sia, named ‘Dusk Till Dawn’. ‘Dusk Till Dawn’ is the lead single to Malik’s upcoming sophomore studio album. The song takes Malik back to his pop music roots and has been described as epic, powerful and a true stadium ballad. Malik’s been teasing the release of his second album on Instagram for months, but has yet to mention a release date. ‘Dusk Till Dawn’ is one of two released songs set to appear on the album, the second being the less popular single “Still Got Time.” Malik’s second album is highly anticipated and fans can’t wait to get a listen.
