The former One Direction singer, as expected, talks about sex on the song, which marks the first offering from his upcoming album, ‘Mind of Mine’.
The wait for Zayn Malik’s anticipated debut single “Pillowtalk” is finally over. The singer released the song online on early Friday, January 29 along with its accompanying music video which stars his rumored girlfriend Gigi Hadid.
A far cry from his previous music with his former One Direction bandmates, the track is a bedroom anthem on which he explicitly talks about his and his girl’s activity in bed, which he refers to in the chorus as “our paradise” and “our war zone.”
This falls in line with his previous statement that his solo material would be “dirty and raw.” In an interview with The Sunday Times a few days ago, he said, “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.”
As for the music video, Zayn is seen engaged in some steamy scenes with Gigi. In between shots of them hugging, kissing and even arguing, some women in provocative poses flash on the screen.
“Pillowtalk” is the first offering from Zayn’s upcoming debut solo album, “Mind of Mine”. The LP, which he said would include about 17 or 18 songs, is expected to arrive in March.
