A new Zayn Malik song that leaked online last week is stolen, says producer Naughty Boy. Now, a nasty argument has ensued between the producer and one of the collaborators on the song. The collaborator, Mic Righteous, continues to berate Naughty Boy after being slighted on social media.
Mic Righteous, an aspiring U.K. rapper, released a cover of the song No Type last week, and immediately after, Naughty Boy posted on Twitter, claiming the song was stolen and leaked.
“That had nothing to do with me or Zayn, something was stolen from the hard drive that had nothing to do with the rapper involved. Just wait for the real one, you won’t be disappointed.”
Mic Righteous didn’t appreciate the producer’s comment. In turn, he posted his own comment on Facebook, blasting Naughty Boy. He claims Zayn, who allegedly can’t release any solo music for at least two years, wants the song out to the public.
“Zayn wants the tune out, he ask me to be on the song, shah (naughtyboy) told me that his label wont (sic) let him release any music for the next two yrs.. So you know what i (sic) did? I did it for him, for you.”
Angered, the rapper continued on, calling Naughty Boy a “fame hungry fattie.” Today, he proceeded with his rants, indicating that Naughty Boy uses young producers while sitting around on his sofa, doing nothing.
All he does is sit there rolling round his sweaty head to next mans beats. He sleeps on the sofa and never baths thats why he's so greasy.— MIC (@MicRighteous) June 20, 2015
The leaked song shows off Malik’s strong vocals, clearly indicating that the former One Direction member has been working on different music. Whether he’s allowed to release music to the public before the alleged two-year mark of leaving One Direction, however, has not been confirmed.
Regardless, Naughty Boy continues to assert that neither he nor Zayn had anything to do with the leaked song. Zayn Malik has yet to comment on the issue.
Meanwhile, One Direction are continuing on with their North American leg of their On the Road Again (ONTRA) tour. The boys have been mum about the leaked song, and probably won’t get involved in the drama concerning their former bandmate. Despite recent rumors, Malik will not be returning to One Direction.
Numerous Zayn Malik fans have praised the new song, stolen or not, and are hoping for an entire R&B album to surface from their idol. If recent rumors of Zayn teaming up on an album deal with 50 Cent are indeed true, fans may get the album they’re eagerly anticipating.
