Conor Maynard wants Zayn Malik duet
Conor Maynard wants to duet with Zayn Malik.
The 22-year-old singer recently met the former One Direction hunk in the recording studio while he was working on solo material and thinks he has an "amazing" voice.
Conor said: "I met Zayn today - he was at the studio with Naughty Boy working on new music. He seemed very quiet but really nice.
"Would I like to work with him? He's got an amazing voice, so that'd be really cool. It's funny - One Direction fans once made up a fake track list and one of them was a duet between Zayn and me so maybe it's meant to be."
However, Conor isn't sure if Zayn would share his excitement.
He added: "It might be pretty awkward though - before today, the only communication I'd had with him was when someone Tweeted him to ask who he preferred out of me and Justin Bieber - and he said Bieber!"
The 'Talking About' singer thinks Zayn's departure from the 'Little Things' group was inevitable.
He told Now magazine: "I think him leaving One Direction had to happen at some point. When he left they were absolutely killing it - it's not like they're on a downward spiral, so it shows he wasn't in it for the money.
"It must have felt like the time was up on that era of his life. It must have been really stressful for him."
