The cover of Zayn Malik’s latest album ‘Mind of Mine’, is a tribute to rappers Lil Wayne and Notorious B.I.G., of whom the ‘Steal My Girl’ hit-maker is a big fan.
An insider confirms that the 23-year-old singer’s album cover art was done as homage to Wayne and B.I.G, Us magazine reports.
The The `You & I` hit-maker’s album image features a picture of the former One Direction star as a cherubic youngster with tattooed arms.
However, the singer has been called out on social media for stealing Wayne’s idea, who did the exact same thing for his albums, ‘Tha Carter III,’and ‘Tha Carter IV.’
One Twitter user wrote, “Didn’t Lil Wayne already sorta do the kid photo with tattoos?! And they say originality is dead. @zaynmalik.”
Another tweeted, “@zaynmalik lil wayne is gonna sue’.
Malik’s album is scheduled to release on March 25 on company RCA.
