Zayn Malik “Pillow Talk” – Listen And Watch Video Here!
Zayn Malik’s highly-anticipated first solo single “Pillow Talk” premiered early Friday. Listen and watch the music video, featuring a serious makeout session with his girlfriend Gigi Hadid, below!
As Gossip Cop reported, the January 29 release date for Malik’s new song, which officially kicks off his post-One Direction career, was only announced a few days ago. Describing the track as a “dirty and raw” take on sex, the singer said in an interview, “Everybody has sex, and it’s something people want hear about.” He added, “It’s part of everybody’s life, a very BIG part of life! And you don’t want to sweep it under the carpet. It has to be talked about.”
That’s certainly more adult subject matter than what some listeners may be used to. The debut of “Pillow Talk” comes 10 months after Malik quit One Direction, the group that turned him, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Niall Horan, and Louis Tomlinson into global superstars after they came in third place on “The X Factor UK” in 2010. And the British star has indicated he left the band to pursue a different style of music.
In a Beats 1 interview with Zane Lowe that was broadcast on Thursday, Malik admitted, “I think the boys kind of knew, in terms of the music, that wasn’t my cup of tea.” He also revealed that his solo album, expected to drop in March, will be called Mind of Mine and consist of 17 or 18 songs. “Pillow Talk” will certainly be one of them.
