Producer Naughty Boy recently spoke to Capital FM about Malik's upcoming debut solo album and said that it will be "worth the wait": "He’s making a very soulful record. He’s writing, himself, on it as well.I think it’s worth the wait, I think the less I say about it the better. I think it’ll all make sense soon. Zayn’s his own man, no one can tell Zayn what to do, especially me!"
