The much anticipated solo-release of former One Direction pop star Zayn Malik, debuted and the internet is losing their mind. The R&B single is dripping with sex—and not in a good way.
The single released consecutively with the music video, featuring Malik’s rumored girlfriend Gigi Hadid. While no one can bash his vocals, because he definitely has talent—it felt like a waste with this song. The overt sexual theme of both the song and video felt forced, trying to convince listeners to view Malik as a grown up and no longer the 1D pop star that he was.
With no memorable hook or chorus, this was a fail in my book. Here’s to hoping his next single will be better—maybe take some pointers from Nick Jonas?
