I am free at last: Malik on quitting ‘One Direction’

, 3:38 PM IST

Singer Zayn Malik says he knew it was his time to quit One Direction and now he feels free at last.

The 23-year-old ‘Pillowtalk’ hitmaker felt it was the right decision to depart the chart-topping boy band in March last year, reported Female First.

“I just knew it was my time. I knew I wanted to do something different and start expressing the way I felt about certain things.” he said.

“I know that musicians are seen as one-sided people a lot of the time. But we do have other elements to us as well. I didn’t feel good. Do you know what I mean? And if you don’t feel good… You need to be able to express what it is that you are. I’m free at last,” Malik said.
