A New Excerpt From Zayn’s Book Details His Relationship With Malay

Z talks wine and weirdness in his upcoming autobiography

Another day, another sneak peek at Zayn’s autobiography.

A day after lamenting about One Direction’s chaste music in the first excerpt from the book, Complex has revealed two more passages. These focus on his relationship with Malay, the Grammy-winning producer who helped craft Z’s solo debut album, Mind of Mine.

“I remember the first time we went into the studio with him, I thought he was a bit of a weirdo,” Zayn writes. “Not in a bad way, I have my fair share of weirdness at times. Malay was just such a strange, unique human being.”

He then goes into detail about Malay’s love for fancy red wine and admits, “I’m more of a beer or whisky guy, but Malay somehow got me into drinking wine. I still don’t do the swirl it around in the glass thing though – I’ll leave that one to him.”

In the second passage, Malay picks up the pen and writes about Zayn, predicting a bright future ahead for the 23-year-old.

“Zayn is a true artist. He’s got vision and he’s pretty clear about what he wants to do,” Malay writes. “It also helps that he’s really creative – he’s always drawing, painting or writing stuff; he’s reading all the time, and it comes out in his lyrics. He’s just forever exercising that part of his brain, and I’m excited to see where he ends up. This is just the beginning for him. Now that he’s getting started, I can only imagine where he’s going to be in a few years.”

Zayn’s self-titled autobiography hits shelves November 1, and is available for pre-order here.
