The Zayn Malik 'PILLOWTALK'-inspired playlist: Tinashe, Bryson Tiller, The Weeknd and more

Chill af R&B for your earholes

Most Popular

Zayn Malik's (or do we just say ZAYN's now?) debut solo single couldn't really be further removed from One Direction's stuff, could it? Like, 'PILLOWTALK' and 'Perfect' are two totally different tunes. That doesn't mean to say we love it any less. It's like a parent forced to choose between their kids; we love 'em both in *different ways*.

Anyway, since we've spent the last 24+ hours listening to el Maliko's uber-edgy new Make You Know Love-produced track on repeat we thought we'd chuck it on a playlist with some similar-sounding sounds. Just for, y'know, when we're feeling some chill af R&B vibes.

Yes we genuinely did just say 'chill af R&B vibes' and, no, we don't care.
