Zayn Malik: It’s “Cool” I Was Included In One Direction “History” Music Video
As Gossip Cop reported, the “History” clip was released last week, and shows how the band has evolved over the last five years. Many fans were pleased that footage of Malik was included despite his departure, and now Malik himself is confirming he was happy, too. Asked about it in a new phone interview with “Zach Sang & The Gang,” the British star revealed, “I have the seen the music video. It’s cool.”
“That was cool. I liked the fact that there were… memories that we shared together. It was a positive thing,” Malik said, adding, “I enjoyed it. It was nice to look back at the memories that we shared together. It was cool.” Sang pointed out that his “Pillow Talk” video currently has more views than 1D’s “History,” but Malik insisted he doesn’t “care” about that.
As for Malik’s first solo album, Mind Of Mine, dropping next month on his one-year anniversary of leaving the group, the singer initially seemed unaware that both would be falling on March 25. “It wasn’t planned. It works [out] that way,” Malik said. “It just seems to coincide with the album launch.” But he did agree with Sang that it could be a “sign.”
Also in the interview, Malik acknowledged for the first time that Gigi Hadid is his girlfriend, albeit indirectly. Check out the full video below!
