17 Bold Music Predictions for 2016: Zayn, 5H, Babymetal & More

#1Zayn Malik's Debut Solo Album Commands the Attention of Teens and Adults Alike

One Direction might be on hiatus, but former member Zayn Malik is probably going to deliver the goods. We expect his debut album will drop this year, and that it'll show a more mature side to the dude--playing to his hip hop and R&B influences. We also think he'll manage to secure fans outside of 1D's fanbase...the dude is already on the cover of The Fader, so indie support is not far away. And who knows? If we're being super optimistic, maybe we'll even get something out of the remaining 1D boys. —Maria Sherman
