It's only been three days since Zayn Malik quit One Direction but it looks as though the 22-year-old is already hard at work on the next stage of his career.

Sources tell People magazine that Zayn was spotted entering a recording studio today, and it is believed that he's collaborating with Naughty Boy (the UK-based songwriter who helped launch Sam Smith's career) on a solo album to be released later this year.
