Singer Zayn Malik is worried that his former One Direction bandmate Harry Styles could "overshadow" him in the future with his debut album.
"Zayn has been flying high on his success as a solo artist, but he's stressing out big time now that Harry's coming out with a new album," a source told Hollywood Life magazine.
Malik has been working hard on his solo career since leaving the British boyband back in 2015. He released his breakthrough solo album Mind of Mine in 2016 and has gained much success ever since. But now, he is worried that Styles is going to steal his "thunder" with a new LP, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
"Out of all the One Direction guys, Harry is the one Zayn has always felt the most competitive with, and with good reason," the source added.
Malik has been hearing from music insiders that Style's solo effort will dominate the charts because it's "edgy and different".
Styles has teased his project in a television ad and announced April 7 as the release date of the much-anticipated song.
