Zayn Malik's Mind of Mine artwork got its debut on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon ahead of his 'PILLOWTALK' and 'It's You' performances; and our initial thought was something along the lines of 'ONE MY GOD IT'S AMAZING AND ADORABLE AND EDGY.' Then, once we'd processed it all, we were like 'hold up, this looks familiar.'

Yup - don't get us wrong, we bloody love the cover what with it's throwback vibes; but it looks so much like Lil Wayne's The Carter III (in fact, the whole Tha Carter trilogy) that errrybody's picking up on it.

Let's just say it's an homage, eh?

Zayn aka ZAYN's clearly taken some inspiration from the rapper; taking Tha Carter's idea of chucking tattoos on an adorable old baby pic and using that to be the official image of his debut album. Loads of fans are picking up on it. One tweeted: "zayn's is better no one even knows who lil Wayne is anymore" [sic] and another piping up: "YO ZAYN PULLED A LIL WAYNE" [sic].

Hmm.

As this fan points out, though, Lil Wayne wasn't even the first to do it. Loads of artists have given their records the #TBT treatment. Whatever.

So there you go.

What d'ya make of that, then? Has el Maliko copied Weezy or is he just taking inspo? Tweet us your thoughts over @sugarscape or drop a comment in the box below, please and a-thank you.
