Zayn Malik “Like I Would” iHeartRadio Music Awards Video: Watch Performance!
Zayn Malik performed “Like I Would” at the 2016 iHeartRadio Music Awards on Sunday. Watch below!
The iHeartRadio Music Awards marks a huge milestone in Malik’s rising career as a solo star. It’s the first time he’s sung at an awards show since leaving One Direction more than a year ago. It’s also only his second live solo performance, following his iHeartRadio album release party concert last month.
Malik is now hitting the stage just two days after scoring his first number one solo album in the U.K. Mind of Mine, which came out on March 25, the exact anniversary of his departure from One Direction, is currently atop the Official Top 40 Chart. He was even given an actual “Number 1 Award” on Friday.
“I want to thank all the fans and my team at RCA and First Access Entertainment for everything they have done to help me start my journey as a solo artist,” Malik told Official Charts upon receiving the honor. “It really is the beginning. I can’t believe that I have managed to achieve this as a solo artist.”
It’ll revealed in the coming days if the British star also topped the Billboard 200. Understandably, Malik isn’t nominated for any iHeartRadio Music Awards tonight, as he didn’t have any eligible music out in time. It should be a very different story this time next year.
