One Direction fans can thank Simon Cowell for gifting the universe with the band’s existence, but even years on the sassy English producer is still invested in the lads’ careers. Despite the focus that tweets, interviews and Instagram captions have pulled from the music, Cowell says Zayn Malik has a hot new record on his hands.
“I’m not interested in a single word he says, but I am interested in what he sings,” Cowell told Yahoo. “I’ve heard it, it’s good, he’s going to do well.”
Cowell also got verklempt discussing One Direction’s next (rumored to be their last) video for “History.”
“I just saw the video last night and, God, it makes you feel emotional,” he said. “When that drops you’re going to see another lease of life for that record.”
