Zayn Malik is an individual solo artist separated from One Direction since his departure in 2015 to make One Direction a quartet like the original Play was when they first started out in 2002. One Direction is most famous for their debut album Made in the AM. He is a related artist of both One Direction and Play at Sony BMG, Columbia, and Syco. Zayn is returning to his original One Direction with the quartet One Direction after his sophomore solo release and the solo releases of Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne. The final two members of One Direction, Niall Horan and Harry Styles, barely have anything to do with Play other than making Play a reality show (Syco, as in both "psycho" and "sicko" or Simon Cowell) like they were.
