Jun 16, 2015 11:46 PM EDT | By Mitchie Encabo
Everyone has been on the lookout on what Zayn Malik is going to do next after leaving One Direction in March and fans were in a frenzy when his solo cover of "No Type" by Rae Sremmurd dropped on Monday, June 15.
The song was uploaded on SoundCloud by UK rapper MIC Righteous who was also featured on the single. However it was taken down almost as soon as it was put up.
A few months ago, a snippet of the song came into view on Vine and a source confirmed that it was the now-turned-solo artist Zayn Malik singing on the track.
Here's a sneak peak of Zayn's new solo effort.
Though the 22-year old singer has reportedly been working with music producer Naughty Boy since his departure from 1D, the DJ has kept himself away from Malik's new song.
On his official Twitter account, he tweeted "that had nothing to do with me or Zayn, something was stolen from the hard drive that had nothing to do with the rapper involved".

However, MIC Righteous seems to believe the opposite, "Lol @NaughtyBoyMusic tell the truth shah. We recorded them bars in ur studio months ago.. Bout 'stolen hard drive'".

While Malik's up-to-date news have recently been making the rounds on social media since he left the boy band, One Direction is also working on 'staying together' as a band.
On the other hand, the former 1D member is also linked to open possibilities of moving into the fashion industry, according to reports.
A source said that "Zayn has always been very creative and introverted. He tried out various looks and styles during his time in One Direction, which has led to interest from top fashion houses,".
There have been several reports that Zayn Malik is already working on releasing a complete solo album. However, Malik has not yet discussed any specific details about it and fans will have to wait to see which among the rumors is the truth.
