Pair exchanged insults via Twitter last night (March 30)
Naughty Boy and One Direction‘s Louis Tomlinson became embroiled in a Twitter back-and-forth yesterday (March 30) after the producer released a demo of a song he worked on with now ex-member Zayn Malik.
Malik left the group last week and has since been spotted in the recording studio with Naughty Boy, who last night posted a demo for the previously-unheard ‘I Won’t Mind’ to Soundcloud.
Tweeting the link to the song, the producer made reference to ‘Zaughty’, a mix of his and Zayn’s names. “There is nothing but love for what was left behind. thats why we don’t mind. 😉 #2016 #zaughty #zindabad.”
Tomlinson was among those who felt that the song was online too soon and tweeted Naughty Boy to tell him so. He accused the 30-year-old of being “inconsiderate” and “clearly trying to wind the fans up”. Naughty Boy responded and the pair traded insults via the social network.
Naughty Boy has today attempted to pour cold water on the incident, tweeting: “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.”
Despite Malik’s departure, One Direction are plotting their first new music as a four-piece.
Niall Horan has taken to Twitter to reveal that he and his bandmates have been ‘organising’ writing sessions with their record label for what will be their fifth studio LP and follow-up to most recent album ‘Four’, which came out last November.
“Had a sit down last night with the label, started organising our writing sessions for the next album! F— yeaaaahhhh! Can’t wait!” Horan tweeted.
