Zayn Malik broke big news yesterday that he signed an RCA Records deal, and it looks like he is more than happy about his new music venture. Zayn went out in Los Angeles, California to hit up a nightclub and do some partying to celebrate, but he knew who to thank when the paps caught up with him outside of the club.

When asked if he was happy about his new deal he revealed that yes he was, and he also thanked Simon Cowell for making all of his wildest dreams come true with his solo career. Watch Zayn thank Simon in the video below:
