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.
Basically we thought it'd be a good idea to introduce y'all to some popstar-types in a similar vein to The Artist Formerly Known As Zayn Malik, now he's all about the breakbeat and synth-y stuff. Below you'll find said playlist, but before we get our ears round it we've included the following artists.
Check 'em out, they're awesome.
- Rae Sremmurd
- Bryson Tiller
- Childish Gambino
- August Alsina
- The Weeknd
- Frank Ocean
- Erik Hassle
- Kendrick Lamar
- Jhené Aiko
- Guordan Banks
- Sasha Keable
- Elijah Blake
- Chris Brown. You might know him.
So there you go.
