It could've all gone tits up when Zayn Malik left One Direction to be a 'normal 22-year-old' for a bit, but now the abnormal 23-year-old's gone and nabbed the number 1 spot in the UK singles chart midweeks with his debut solo single 'PILLOWTALK.' Zlay our lives, Zaddy.
Now obviously the track was released last Friday and is our first taster of the post-1D sound we can expect from his first album Mind of Mine; and it looks like people are feelin' it since it's essentially selling shitloads and set for a number 1 debut when the proper chart's announced this Friday (February 5th, folks.)
Yup, the tune's even beating Rihanna and Drake's highly-anticipated collab 'Work.' So there you go.
Basically the top 5 looks a little bit like this rn:
1. ZAYN - 'PILLOWTALK' (yeah, it's all capitalised and edgy)
2. Jonas Blue featuring Dakota - 'Fast Car'
3. Rihanna featuring Drake - 'Work'
4. Shawn Mendes - 'Stitches'
5. Justin Bieber - 'Love Yourself'
So your mate and our Shawn Mendes has been knocked off the top spot with 'Stitches' and Zayn's currently number 1 in approximately a gazillion (read: sixty or something) countries. Could be doing worse, really.
