    So, about 20 minutes in, the hosts were just chatting with Zayn about how interesting it is to watch the trajectory of each 1D member's now-solo career.

    The interviewers then asked Zayn who the best One Direction member is (besides himself), to which he replied, "I'll tell you what — Niall [Horan] is my favorite."

    "How about that?" he said. "You want a quote?"

    The one interviewer then asked Zayn, "Even better music than you?"

    Zayn replied, "Uh, yeah, I will say that he makes better music than me. I'm a Niall fan."

    I mean, "Slow Hands" is a gorgeous song.
