Zayn Malik might have just celebrated the release of his debut solo album, but you’d never be able to tell judging by these pictures. The former One Direction star failed to raise a smile when he stepped out in New York on Wednesday.
Zayn looked less than happy as he strolled along a Manhattan street dressed in head to toe green. The 23-year-old stood out in a bold olive green tracksuit and light green bomber jacket. The rugged star, who recently released the music video for emotional song It’s You, was also showing off his new shaved do and a lot of stubble. You’d think he’d be able to raise even a small smile given Mind of Mine peaked at number one in 83 countries on the iTunes chart.
The 23-year-old singer released his LP last Friday, exactly a year to the day he shocked the world when he quit boy band One Direction. The lead single PiLlOw TalK from the record topped the charts in 60 countries worldwide and he’s now reached yet another mammoth milestone with the success of his album. Despite his glum appearance the singer took to Twitter to thank his fans for all their support and said his dreams are coming true. “Zquad thank you, dreams coming true right now (sic),” he shared with his 18 million followers.
