Not many have managed it, but like Robbie Williams and Justin Timberlake, Zayn Malik has successfully escaped his boyband image to become a credible popstar in his own right.
Zayn's debut solo single `Pillowtalk' topped the charts around the world and has had over half a billion views on YouTube.
His album Mind of Mine debuted at no.1 in both the UK and US charts, proving that he's on his way to becoming as colossal as the band he left behind.
Not only have the Directioners remained as loyal as ever, but his fanbase has also grown as he has developed his more mature, R&B sound.
With almost 20m Twitter followers, he's certainly lost none of his popularity.
Zayn's life remains of huge interest to his fans and gossip-followers worldwide, whether for his hairstyles, comments about his former bandmates or his relationship with American supermodel Gigi Hadid.
In this completely updated title, bestselling celebrity biographer Sarah Oliver charts Zayn's incredible journey from Bradford to Los Angeles and all that's happened in between.
