It's been a while since One Direction has released new music, so we're eagerly anticipating their follow-up to last year's Midnight Memories. Simon Cowell teased that their upcoming album is one of their best yet, and apparently he's really loving the song that Zayn Malik raps on!

Zayn's collaborator Naughty Boy spilled that their co-written track, "One Chance to Dance," might be the next new 1D song you'll hear.

"There's a real possibility it'll be the first single," he told Mirror Online. "Simon loves it. He even texted me about it."

Beyond his rapping, expect to be surprised by Zayn's performance!

"I couldn't believe the way he sung on this song, and I think that's going to surprise most people," Naughty Boy said. "[Zayn] glides on it."

Believe us, we're so curious about what Zayn's rapping sounds like! According to Naughty Boy, Zayn covers a lot of personal material, so we'll probably learn even more about him through this track.
