Los Angeles - A demo which was released online by Naughty Boy isn't Zayn Malik's new solo material.

The track - which was posted by the producer onto online streaming service Soundcloud - was believed to be the 22-year-old singer's first offering since he left One Direction last week but it has now been discovered the single I Won't Mind was recorded during his time with the band and didn't make it onto their album Four.

An insider said: "It's important fans know this isn't a solo Zayn song or even representative of material he might record in the future. If you listen to the track it is clearly a song written with One Direction in mind for their last album. It's not new, nor is it a Zayn Malik solo track."

Shortly after revealing the news he had quit the group to lead a "normal" life, Zayn was spotted heading into a recording studio with the 30-year-old DJ fuelling rumours he was already working on his own material.

Naughty Boy - whose real name is Shahid Khan - then posted the track online...

However, a representative for the La La La hitmaker has since confirmed to MailOnline: "Naughty Boy and Zayn wrote and demoed it as a contender for 1D's album last year."

Naughty Boy had previously angered the heartthrob's former bandmates, with pal Louis Tomlinson clashing with him in a series of tweets shortly before the demo was uploaded after he posted a negative video about the band which upset their fans.

The 23-year-old singer later took to Twitter again to change the subject by thanking the One Direction fans - known as Directioners - for their support.
