The long wait is over. Zayn Malik, a former member of British boy band One Direction, has finally dropped the music video of his debut single as a solo artist.
Ten months after leaving 1D behind, the 23-year-old singer finally returned to the music scene with PILLOWTALK– a quite sultry song but very much in line with Zayn’s artistic side. He’s also nailing that smooth and sexy voice.
Filled with kaleidoscope effects and creative takes on every scene, Zayn and real-life girlfriend Gigi Hadid are featured in their sweetest state in the three-minute video. Talk about sexy and artsy!
“It’s a paradise and it’s a war zone,” sings Zayn as he holds his beloved in his arms. *Swoons*
Looks like Zayn finally found the perfect outlet for his artistic expression! Fangirls (and boys) couldn’t be happier for their idol.
Prior to the release of the single, the British singer teased his followers a bit over Twitter by asking who’s going to stay up to wait for his single AND video. But since its early morning in the Philippines at that time, his Pinoy fans were already wide awake by the time the music video got published.
So who's staying up with me tonight for this single and video ?
