London: Immediately after One Direction announced that their fifth studio album would be called "Made in the A.M.", some fans started speculating that the title was a diss aimed at the group's former member Zayn Malik.
In some posts on Twitter fans shared following the title revelation, they point out that the "A.M." may actually stand for "after Malik", reports aceshowbiz.com.
One user wrote: "AC= after Christ era AM= after malik era?" Another added: "What A.M after Malik I have lost my all chill I am dying."
"Made in the A.M." will be One Direction's first album without Malik, who left the group back in March. The follow-up to last year's "FOUR" will release on November 13, the same day singer Justin Bieber's highly-anticipated comeback album will arrive.
