What is Zayn Malik’s Net Worth?
Zayn Malik is an English singer who has a net worth of $75 million. He joined the popular band One Direction, courtesy of The X Factor in 2010. However, in March 2015, he exited the group and went solo, signing his debut solo recording contract with RCA Records.
Zain Javadd Malik was birthed in Bradford, West Yorkshire, England. The date was 12th January 1993. His father Yaser Malik is an immigrant Pakistani Muslim, and his mother Trisha Malik is a white British of English and Irish descent. Zayn is the second of four children, the rest being female.
Zayn spent much of his childhood in East Bowling, Bradford, and schooled at Lower Fields Primary School and Tong Leadership Academy in Bradford. He often engaged in performing arts courses and school productions, as a teenager.
The singer cited his father’s urban music records, mostly R&B, hip-hop, and reggae, as an early influence. While at school, he wrote raps. His first performance on stage was during the visit of Jay Sean to his school. Zayn also engaged in boxing for two years. He had hoped to become an English teacher, so he originally intended to obtain a degree in English before eventually switching to a career in music.
Zayn auditioned for The X Factor in 2010, at the age of 17. He was eliminated before the final round of the competition as a solo contestant. However, he was coupled with four other contestants from the show, to form the boy band One Direction. The band finished in third place and went on to sign a recording contract worth $2 million with Syco Records.
The band earned a lot of fame in the UK, and after forming in 2010, the group was able to sell over 20 million copies of their albums globally. They have dropped five studio albums so far. One Direction is controlled by a firm known as 1D Media and was owned equally by the five members.
In July 2015, Zayn pursued a solo career and left the boy band, One Direction. He also signed a recording deal with RCA Records. He announced the name of his first album as Mind of Mine in his debut solo audiovisual interview with Zane Lowe for Apple Music Beats 1. In January 2016, Zayn dropped the lead single from the album titled Pillowtalk. The track peaked at number one in numerous countries, such as the UK Singles Chart and the US Billboard Hot 100.
The single Pillowtalk also earned Malik the number 6th position on the Billboard Artists 100 Chart. He also made history globally for having the highest first-day and weekly streams for a debut artist. The second single Like I Would also hit the number one spot on the Billboard Dance Club Songs Chart.
In March 2016, the album Mind of Mine was finally released and featured tracks co-written by Malik and other professional songwriters. The album received critical acclaim and made it to the number-one spot in numerous countries including the US where he broke the record as the first British male solo artist to peak at number one with his first album.
Later in 2016, Zayn sang a duet with Taylor Swift on the track I Don’t Wanna Live Forever, the soundtrack for the movie Fifty Shades Darker. The single peaked at number one in Sweden, number two in America, and number five in the UK.
In April 2018, Malik’s second album Icarus Falls was released and it included tracks like Let Me, Dusk Till Dawn, and Still Got Time. This album was commercially successful, although not as successful as his debut solo album. A year later, he performed a duet with Zhavia Ward on the single A Whole New World for the soundtrack of the remake of Aladdin. Flames, an electropop track, was also released in 2019, a track on which he collaborated, wrote, and recorded with R3hab and Jungleboi.
Zayn dropped the lead single Better from his third studio album Nobody Is Listening which was yet to be released. This was his debut solo release after a two-year hiatus. A year later, Nobody Is Listening was released.
Zayn Malik was raised as a Muslim and is fluent in Urdu and English. He can also read Arabic. However, he stated that he no longer identified as a Muslim in 2018.
While the singer was with One Direction, he spoke openly about an eating disorder which he attributed to an enormous workload and several tours. He also spoke about his anxiety and lack of confidence.
Zayn owned homes in Los Angeles and London, and in 2018, he sold both houses. He currently owns an apartment in SoHo, Manhattan.
Between 2010 to 2015, Malik dated Geneva Lane (2010-2011), Rebecca Ferguson (2011), Stephanie Davis (2011), and Perrie Edwards (2011-2015), engaging the latter in 2013, but they split in 2015.
Malik also had an on-and-off relationship with model Gigi Hadid since late 2015. They eventually had a child together in September 2020. A year later, they split after Malik got involved in an argument that led to a court case with Yolanda, Gigi’s mother.
