Former One Direction member, Zayn Malik released the cover for his first solo album Mind Of Mine on Wednesday which showed him as a tattooed toddler.
Shortly after the release, the 23-year-old is already having to defend himself against claims that he copied the artwork from Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter III cover which also shows a tattooed child.
Zayn responded detractors, saying he has long been brewing over the album cover idea and fired back at those who don’t “appreciate art”.
Zayn debuted the album cover on Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight show where he played his new track It’s You, speculated to be about ex-fiancee Perrie Edwards.
It’s lyrics read: “She’s got, she’s got, she’s got her own reasons for talking to me/She don’t, she don’t, she don’t give a f*** about what I need.”
Zayn tagged his appearance on Jimmy’s show “sick” but teased fans that there would be an even better treat soon with a new black and white music video
Producer Make You Know Love (MYKL) who co-wrote Zayn’s recent hit Pillowtalk has also shared a very short snippet of his new song Drunk All Summer.
Zayn can be heard singing the lyrics, “Late nights/ red eyes/ amnesia.”
The Album, Mind Of Mine will be released on March 25.
