Fans have known for a while now that Zayn Malik planned on having a solo career despite his initial comments about wanting to lead a "normal" life. However, now his solo plans are more concrete – he just signed with RCA Records (and shaded One Direction in the process).

Zayn had previously been working on tunes with music producer Naughty Boy, but the pair seemingly had a falling out just days before Zayn's RCA announcement.

Naughty Boy took to Twitter after Zayn's solo news broke, sharing:

What do you think Naughty Boy means by this statement? Is it a dig at himself? A jab at Zayn? Let us know in the comments!
