Zayn Malik takes digs at The Queen, Simon Cowell and Kanye West in new music which found its way online earlier this week.
In a surprise turn the 28-year-old appeared to leak his own music when he tweeted a link to a Dropbox folder containing three songs from a collection called Yellow Tape.
In a track called 'Believe Me', he references his former X Factor mentor Cowell and his music label Syco, singing: "Glad we left the Syco."
In reference to the 95-year-old British monarch, he raps: "Fuck the Queen, she gon' knight 'em for their violence."
The most bizarre insult is reserved for Kanye, however, of whom he declares: "Fuck Kanye, beat him by farting."
The link to Malik's new EP was deactivated shortly after his tweet but has since been re-enabled.
