In an interview with Dazed, the former One Direction member revealed that though he doesn’t get “much feedback from his peers” on his music, he did speak “a bit” with Taylor Swift about his debut album when he met her at supermodel Gigi Hadid’s house.
“At Gigi’s house we briefly spoke and she told me she really enjoyed the album, Malik told Dazed. “It was nice to get some feedback. She said she thought I was cool and I kind of blushed a bit and didn’t know how to take it.”
Mind of Mine just dropped earlier this year, but it sounds as though Malik has no plans to slow down. The singer is already hard at work on his second album, which has the potential to drop before the end of this year.
“I’m just trying to do more and more,” said Malik. “I’m excited to get more involved in every way that I can. Whether it’s producing or the creative for my stage direction, I just want to get down to every detail.”
