Naughty Boy Questions Zayn Malik’s Songwriting Credit on ‘Pillowtalk’
It looks like Naughty Boy is still bitter about being removed from Zayn Malik’s debut solo album, “Mind of Mine”. The British producer might have reignited their feud when he recently called him out over the former One Direction singer’s songwriting claims.
It all began when Zayn told a fan on Twitter that “Pillowtalk” was the first song he wrote for the album. A few moments later, Naughty Boy replied in a now deleted tweet, “Lol.” He also tagged @MakeYouKnowLove who co-wrote the track.
He went on explaining in a separare tweet, “This ain’t about me.. its just about giving credit to @MakeYouKnowLove for writing an amazing song, thats all.. bless. have a great day.” In other words, he either hinted that Zayn didn’t write the song at all or just tried to tell his former collaborator to at least give credit to his co-writer.
Zayn and Naughty Boy were once friends and worked closely after the former announced his departure from One Direction. Their relationship fell apart after Zayn accused the producer of leaking one of his tracks.
