He gets pretty steamy with Gigi Hadid...
Zayn Malik’s first single as a solo artist is here, just in case you missed the uber-steamy video and risque lyrics – and it seems the world has gone Zayn-crazy.
Zayn’s debut single, Pillow Talk, has rocketed to the top of the charts in no less than 60 countries around the world, and has amassed nearly 25 million Youtube views in just three days.
On Friday, we showed you the raunchy video clip, featuring none other than Gigi Hadid getting up close and personal with the ex-One Directioner.
The new single couldn’t be further from the squeaky clean, parent-approved image of One Direction – to be blunt, it’s all about sex.
Sample lyrics include: ‘Fucking you and fighting on, it’s our paradise and it’s our war zone/ In your bed all day, bed all day, bed all day’ and ‘So we’ll piss off the neighbours/ In the place that feels the tears/ The place to lose your fears/ Yeah, reckless behaviour/ A place that is so pure, so dirty and raw’.
Yep, not so One Direction any more.
After previously calling the music of his previous band ‘generic as fuck’, it’s not only the look of his new video, but also the sound that is incredibly different.
It has a slow R&B vibe which is sure to garner Zayn a new legion of fans.
But as good as the song is, what we really can’t stop talking about is Gigi’s appearance in the video.
She’s no stranger to a music video or two, having previously appeared in Calvin Harris’s How Deep Is Your Love, but can the chemistry between them really be just for the cameras?
Only yesterday, Zayn told Zane Lowe on Apple Beats 1 radio that the pair are just ‘good friends’, even though they’ve been spotted out together holding hands, swapping clothes and wearing matching outfits – and Gigi even has a picture of Zayn as her phone’s lockscreen.
Have a look at the raunchy video for yourself…
What do you think of the new song? Do you like it or is it too much of a departure from One Direction’s sound? Let us know @marieclaireuk
