Not all bubble gum pop stars are huge fans of the music. In fact, many of them feel the need to ditch sound and revamp their images. Unfortunately, sometimes their fans don’t follow. Here are 8 bubble gum pop stars who broke the brand:
8. Zayn Malik
Zayn Malik made a name for himself with the boy band, One Direction. They were uber successful with their cheesy pop sound, but that wasn’t enough for Zayn. He left the band in May 2015, claiming that he left because he had no creative control and didn’t want to be part of a boy band. Now he’s quickly establishing himself as a solo artist and his music sounds nothing like what he recorded with One Direction. It’s a mix of downtempo electronic and alternative R&B with a pop-R&B and the video features a lot of sexual imagery. It’s definitely more mature!
