Zayn Malik‘s 17.4 million social media followers and fans will sure be thanking Interview for its latest (and possibly greatest) cover.

The handsome former One Directioner, 22, posed in a solo shirtless selfie for the magazine’s September #ME issue.

He’s just one of the eight alternate covers – also featuring Miley Cyrus, Victoria Beckham, Kim Kardashian West, Jennifer Lopez, , Madonna and Mert Alas – honoring 150 of the most powerful social media stars and leaders in the world of entertainment, music and fashion.

After his departure from the boy band – who just announced their extended hiatus – in March and his split from his fiancée, Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards, earlier this summer, it’s clear to see that Malik definitely seems to be focusing on #ME.
