Brown appeared on Capital FM where he called Zayn his "homeboy." The two are on the same label (RCA Records), and Brown hinted that a future collaboration is not out of the question.
"Of course, of course, [I'd work with him]," Brown said. "I don't shy away from anyone and I think he's a great artist. Now he's doing his solo thing, I know he has a huge fan base and the fans are waiting to hear his stuff, so it would be cool to get down and collab."
Chris also added that he's "not a hard guy to get in the studio with," and that he works on "everybody's songs," which makes a potential collaboration even more likely.
We don't think he'd be too opposed to working with Chris Brown.
And back in 2010, Zayn even covered Chris's "With You."
As of right now, Zayn has kept mum over any collaborations, minus the recent blow-up between himself and former collaborator Naughty Boy. Until we hear anything official, we'll just have to keep an eye out (and an ear open) to any word as Zayn works on his debut.
