Zayn Malik Has Admitted Smoking Weed Helps Him To Think Creatively

Zayn Malik

Zayn Malik opens up about how he smokes weed in order to ‘think outside the box’

With Zayn Malik’s first solo album arriving this week, he speaks to Creative Magazine about how weed played its part.

Mind of Mine arrives this week and the former One Direction member revealed a little secret behind some of the success to his first solo debut.

He admits that weed has been a factor in his song writing process and that it helps him to “think outside the box”.

He opened up to Creative Magazine during an interview about the forthcoming album and said:

“I smoke sometimes when I’m writing. Sometimes it helps with the creative process, depending on the strain of weed.”

He also added:

 “I smoked quite a bit in school. I used to write raps and I found it was quite helpful in that department, coming up with words and different concepts. It helped me think outside the box.”

He describes Mind of Mine as a chilled compilation with vibes, something you can just relax to.

With Pillowtalk a bagged success, he described a few more tracks on the album as something you could perhaps dance to but there were no “heavy or hard dance tracks”.
