You can’t pay for this kind of press. Over the past 24 hours the internet has been buzzing about a new song from Zayn Malik, who recently made headlines by announcing his departure from pop group, One Direction. When I saw this on my news-feed this morning I didn’t think twice about it, as I am not a 1D fan and admittedly that sounds like a pretty solid move for Zayn. Leave the band to pursue a solo career and immediately drop a single to keep the momentum going. Hit em’ with the old one-two punch. The only problem is that “Home” isn’t the solo debut that your little sister was hoping for, but instead is a new release from one of NSM’s favorite rappers, Cam Meekins. Uploaded to a fake account, the song has gotten nearly 150,000 views in just 24 hours under the mislabeled title, which has to be a win for the Boston emcee. Amirite? Check out more music from

Update: (3/29/15 12:30pm) The fake channel has been disabled but fans continue to post the song under the wrong title. Last night around 11:30pm the view count had reached roughly 235,000 with no sign of slowing down.
