Zayn Malik (born January 12, 1993) is best known as a member of the English boy band One Direction. Raised in Bradford, West Yorkshire, Zayn (real name Zain Javadd Malik) auditioned as a solo act on the seventh series of The X Factor in 2010. He was then paired with fellow solo auditionees, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson by guest judge, Nicole Scherzinger to form a five-piece boy band. They later called themselves One Direction and went on to come third in the competition. Despite being runners-up, Simon Cowell signed them to his record company Syco Entertainment and they released their debut album, Up All Night in 2011 which went to number 1 in the US Billboard 100 charts. The band went on to release a second album, Take Me Home which went triple Platinum in the UK. Their third studio album, Midnight Memories went to number 1 in 20 countries. On August 18, 2013, Zayn confirmed that he was engaged to Little Mix singer, Perrie Edwards.
