Zayn Malikjust released a new track. All we can say is—it's getting hot in here.
The 23-year-old English hunk set the steamy tone for his debut solo album Mind of Mine when he released the first single "Pillowtalk." Just when we thought things couldn't get steamier, the former One Direction crooner unveiled his latest track "Like I Would" early Thursday. As you could have guessed, it's all about making some good lovin'—but there's some trouble brewing.
Backed by a pulsing dance beat, Malik belts out a plea to a mystery woman who is being wooed by another man. His intentions are clear: "He won't touch you like I do / He won't love you like I would / He don't know your body /He don't do you right / He won't love you like I would."
The phrase repeats like Malik is trapped in a sexy haze. We just wish we knew which mystery woman in Malik's life inspired such a tune.
While we already have the song stuck in our heads, what does the singer's loyal "Zquad" think? The reviews are in and they are glowing.
While some questioned his choice to leave the band that shot him to international fame, Malik's solo career is certainly off to a strong start.
His "Pillowtalk" music video has garnered nearly 200 million views to date, the excitement surrounding the release of his entire album on March 25 continues to rise and, to top it all off, he has his stunning girlfriend Gigi Hadid on his arm through it all. If anyone thought this pop star would come to regret his past decisions, it's not looking likely.
"I feel good!" he recently told Z100's Elvis Duran of leaving the band. "You have to always remain true to yourself and do whatever makes you happy because at the end of the day, you answer to yourself, so it's a good place to be in. I'm happy about the decision I made."
