Zayn Malik is officially heading in a different direction, dropping his debut solo single ‘Pillowtalk’ today.
The steamy video for the track is rumoured to feature Malik’s girlfriend Gigi Hadid. Released promos for the song show the two tonsil-wrestling.
The former One Direction member said in an interview with The Sunday Times that his new material as “dirty and raw,” adding:
“Everybody has sex, and it’s something people want to hear about. 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.”
Malik revealed to Apple Beats 1 his solo album will be called Mind of Mine, featuring 17 or 18 songs. He said regarding leaving the group:
“I think the boys kind of knew that wasn’t my cup of tea…They would try to facilitate certain things for me so I could sing certain R&B ad-libs here and there, and that was nice,” he said.
