Zayn Malik, BeFoUr

RCA Records

The hits keep on coming.

After previously releasing "PiLlOwT4lK," "iT's YoU" and "LIKE I WOULD," Zayn Malik debuted "BeFoUr" Thursday, the fourth track from his solo album, Mind of Mine. Produced by Malay, the song was first previewed in the behind-the-scenes video for Malik's FADER cover in 2015. Other songs on the album include "MiNd of MiNdd," "sHe," "dRuNk," "fLoWer," "rEaR vIeW," "wRoNg (feat. Kehlani)," "fOoL fOr YoU," "BoRdErSz," "tRuTh," "lUcOzAdE," and "TiO." The deluxe edition offers four more tracks: "Blue," "Bright," "Like I Would" and "She Don't Love Me." Target's deluxe edition features two more songs, "Do Something Good" and "Golden."

When Mind of Mine's track listing was announced, some fans feared "BeFoUr" would be about the remaining One Direction members. After all, Four was the title of the last album Malik made with Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson. But it seems his fans' fears were for naught.

"I don't drink to get drunk / I feel all the right funk / If there's something I want / I'll take all the right wrongs / Now, I'm gonna stay in my zone / I'm tired of picking that bone / And I can't be bothered to fight it no more, no," Malik sings. "Numb on a roof / Set it on fire / Just to give me proof / I'm living on a wire / Numb on a roof / Set it on fire / Just to give me proof / I'm living on a wire / So say what you wanna say, what you wanna / So say what you wanna say, what you gotta say, now / So say what you wanna say, what you want / Shame is you won't say that to my face / I've done this before / Not like this, not like this / Time for me to move up / So many hours have gone / Heart beats the pump of my blood / No strings for you to pull on / You've got your tongue in your cheek / So pardon if I don't speak / Hand to my cuts into your soul, no."

Malik is scheduled to perform his new music on NBC's The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon March 24. After his album is released the next day, the 23-year-old singer will do a Q&A with radio host Elvis Duran and perform an intimate set at the iHeartRadio Theater in New York City.
