Gone is Zayn’s last name Malik and here is the video for his just-released solo debut ‘Pillowtalk’.
The video, the song, the album announcement are all just minutes old, with Sony Music servicing the former One Direction star’s song to Australian media just under 15 minutes ago.
But first the video, which features Zayn getting up close with model Gigi Hadid. It’s a sexy, stylish, slow-burning kinda thing that’s a lot slicker and much less cutesy than the catalogue of his boyband past. After all, he wouldn’t have got away with belting out the ‘f’ bomb in 1D.
Out now, ‘Pillowtalk’ is the lead single from Zayn’s forthcoming debut solo album ‘Mind Of Mine’, which will drop at retailers across the planet on Friday March 25.
It’s a collaboration with producer Malay, who’s previously worked with Frank Ocean.
