However, the track was removed from Soundcloud, after just a few hours, and the producer posted on Twitter:
no one is against anyone here. the fans made all of us. not just a chosen few. the love is alive. hate just doesn't belong there. 🙏— Naughty Boy (@NaughtyBoyMusic) March 31, 2015
His decision comes after a Twitter row with Zayn’s former bandmate Louis Tomlinson has taken to Twitter to slam the producer.
Louis voiced his frustrations shortly after Naughty Boy, real name Shahid Khan, posted the track, but there followed some confusion over what he was annoyed about.
@NaughtyBoyMusic I was talking about the video you tweeted . Clearly trying to wind the fans up ! Well you succeeded anyway . Fair play— Louis Tomlinson (@Louis_Tomlinson) March 31, 2015
@Louis_Tomlinson calm down. was talkin bout Louis Walsh cuz he didn't let someone through on X factor. Look @ the date of the tweet. 😂 #2014— Naughty Boy (@NaughtyBoyMusic) March 31, 2015
@Louis_Tomlinson lol you should let the other boys talk for a change. :)— Naughty Boy (@NaughtyBoyMusic) March 31, 2015
Louis then posted a string of tweets, stating that the producer’s behaviour had been “inconsiderate”.
Anywayyyyyyyyyyyyyy— Louis Tomlinson (@Louis_Tomlinson) March 30, 2015
Big love to all our fans ! Seriously thank you you guys have been unbelievable , can't wait to play Cape Town . Gonna be a BIG show !!!— Louis Tomlinson (@Louis_Tomlinson) March 31, 2015
Since leaving 1D to live the life of a “normal 22-year-old”, Zayn’s been rather busy and over the weekend, he went house-hunting with his fiancée Perrie Edwards.
Perrie is yet to comment on Zayn’s decision to leave 1D, but she was spotted enjoying a shopping trip with his family on Monday afternoon.
Zayn’s other former bandmates haven’t said much on the matter, but Niall Horan has revealed that the lads have pencilled in writing sessions for their new album.
