Zain Javadd "Zayn" Malik ( Urdu: زین جواد ملک; born 12 January 1993), who records mononymously as Zayn, is a British singer and songwriter. Born and raised in Bradford, Malik aspired to pursue a career in music from a young age, and auditioned as a solo artist for the British music competition The X Factor in 2010. After being eliminated as a solo performer, Malik was brought back into the competition, along with four other contestants, to form the boy band that would become known as One Direction. Malik split from the group in March 2015 and signed a solo recording contract with RCA Records. Adopting a more R&B music style with his debut studio album Mind of Mine (2016) and its lead single, "Pillowtalk", Malik became the first British male artist to debut at number one in both the UK and US with a debut single and debut album. Malik is the recipient of several accolades, including an American Music Award and a Billboard Music Award.
