Zayn Malik kind of abruptly left One Direction in March and only just inked a solo record deal last month, but it seems like a lot of feelers are out in terms of who he wants to work with and who wants to work with him.
Prior to signing his record deal with RCA Records, Malik appeared to hit a recording studio up with Jay Sean, MYKL and L.A. Reid. It isn't totally clear if he was working on his own solo music or not, but based on those individuals and Malik's previous mentioning of loving hip-hop and R&B since his X Factor days it makes sense that his solo sound will be far less poppy and rocky.
Plus there have been those leaks, including his collaboration with British rap duo Krept & Konan.
Anyway, rapper Tyler, The Creator, appears to want in on the action of working with Malik on his forthcoming debut solo effort.
On Sunday the rapper tweeted Malik, complimenting his vocals.
"I HAVE BEAUTIFUL INSTRUMENTALS AND YOU HAVE A VOICE LETS FIGURE THIS OUT MY GUY," the rapper dished.

Malik tweeted his response Monday. He's all for it, claiming, "sounds sick BRO."

Malik is currently in Los Angeles. He actually attended the Straight Outta Compton premiere Monday night and the rapper is in California so perhaps they'll get together soon to make some magical music.
