The new Zayn Malik album cover is already starting controversy in the twitterverse. The Ex-One Direction crooner released his first image of the forthcoming solo effort and it did more that raise eyesbrows, it raised the blood pressure of folks thinking that Zayn swiped from Lil Wayne's "Tha Carter III" from a few years back.

Zayn stands by his own album cover as "wholly" original and tweeted several responses such as, 'I'm not tryna be no rapper , my album is me a child ... My ideas have been with me a long time [sic] and "Use your brain, appreciate art don't discriminate what you don't understand."

I've posted both albums here -- take the poll and tell us your opinion now.
