Zayn proves once again that he’s pulling a classic Justin Timberlake and finding his true success out of his solo career versus the boy band that brought him into the spotlight. My prediction? Zayn’s debut album Mind of Mine will solidify his place into the pop/R&B sensation that’s taking over radio waves. His latest single, “BeFoUr” takes on a darker vibe as Malik hazily sings, “So say what you wanna say, what you want, shame is you won’t say that to my face.” Poetic lyrics flow effortlessly out of Zayn’s mouth as a striking beat pulls you in with every verse. Layered pretty harmonies (reminiscent of a young Justin Timberlake) plague the chorus in the sexiest way. Don’t even get me started on that falsetto. I will now refer to Zayn as the reincarnated Justin Timberlake. This is just the beginning for Zayn and he knows it…
A rugged unshaven Zayn Malik is seen brushing noses with blonde bombshell/model Gigi Hadid. Their hands travel and Hadid smirks at her man. Their sensual caresses highlight every sexual innuendo heard in Malik’s first solo single to the world, “Pillowtalk”.
The lyrics are poetic, raw, sexy, and honest. Everything we wanted to hear from Zayn, something different and true to himself. He creates an entire world out of one place; a bed. “So we’ll piss off the neighbours, in the place that feels the tears, the place to lose your fears.” Zayn’s voice is as flawless as we remember, he makes every note sound just as exquisite as the next. Although this is a pop song, it’s very different from a top 40 1D single as the video also portrays; artistic creations show naked bodies, paint, beautiful visual effects, and more. Malik experiments with more R&B sounds on “Pillowtalk”, something that suits him very well. If this is any indication of what the rest of this new Zayn chapter sounds like, then bring it on, I’m ready.
Malik’s debut solo album, Mind of Mine comes out March 25. Mark your calendars.
