After five years with the band, Zayn decided to leave One Direction in March 2015. In a statement about leaving, Zayn said, “I am leaving because I want to be a normal 22-year-old who is able to relax and have some private time out of the spotlight. I know I have four friends for life in Louis, Liam, Harry and Niall. I know they will continue to be the best band in the world.”
