AceShowbiz - Zayn Malik has no plans to return with new music despite online rumours suggesting he's set to drop a new collaboration this week (begins February 10).
Fans on Tumblr began speculating the former One Direction singer was gearing up for a comeback when one user shared a blog post explaining he was set to drop a new track with Brazilian artist Rafael Allmark on Wednesday.
The tune, titled "Fugir", was rumoured to only be available on iTunes Brazil and was released on the singer's 2019 self-titled EP. Zayn had reportedly contributed a new English verse to the track.
However, taking to Twitter, the "Pillowtalk" hitmaker denied all knowledge of the release, writing to fans: "Yo! thank you so much for letting me know about this."
"I do not have any new collaborations coming so please just keep checking here for any news. You know you will always be the first to know. Spread the word."
Fans quickly took to the comments to interact with the star following the rare social media post, and begged him to release new music soon. Some also used the "#FreeZayn" hashtag, suggesting he was being held back from releasing new projects by his record label, RCA Records.
