Zayn is gearing up to the release of his next studio album 'Room Under The Stairs' and we are living for him being in his press tour era.

Most of us have been following Zayn since 2010, when One Direction formed, but even 14 years on there's more for us to learn about the 'What I Am' singer.

Speaking on The Kelly Clarkson Show in the States, Zayn explained how he began taking singing "seriously" when he was 15/16 years old, but he started singing much earlier than that.

Zayn, who is performing his first solo London gig this month, said he joined his school choir aged eight but for one particular reason, and it has nothing to do with singing.

Zayn Malik excited for first UK solo show

"And I joined the school choir just because I fancied these girls that where in the choir," he admitted with a nervous grin on his face. Zayn showed his cheeky side, saying: "Yeah they were triplets, so..."

"I wanted to spend some extra time with them and we got to hang out in choir." Kelly joked: "Well, I hope they're watching now, look what you've done ladies."

Honestly, those triplets need Damehoods because the service they've done for society is unmatched. We don't want to imagine a world where Zayn doesn't sing, and we never have to because of those sisters.
