Zayn Malik has literally sent fans in to a frenzy after sharing a new track online…for free!

The track is a remix of August Alsina’s ‘Don’t Matter’, but it wasn’t even supposed to be released. In a tweet, Zayn has explained that he decided to share the track himself as it was leaked online:  “This was not a song I intended to put out, but due to unprofessionalism has been leaked by someone and my fans mean more to me than a stupid leak, so here it is free for you to enjoy.” Zayn tweeted.

The announcement led to sudden surge in the number of people trying to access Zayn’s website, which eventually caused it to crash.

August responded to the leak by tweeting: “Zayn, I’m sending an abundance of love to you! You are my brother, I am yours. I don’t know how this happened but WAY TO MAKE LEMONS INTO LEMONADE. (& a great batch, might I add) [laughing, crying and praying emojis] we do great work together. [love heart and lightening emojis] Mashallah King!”

Fortunately, Zayn’s site is now up and running again!
