It's pretty obvious Zayn Malik's Mind of Mine album's influenced by loads of his favourite artists, innit? 'LIKE I WOULD' has those Chris Brown vibes, the Frank Ocean comparisons were inevitable seeing as his producer fella Malay's involved and 'TiO' could be released by Miguel tomorrow. But which track was inspired by John Lennon off of The Beatles fame, eh?

Well el Maliko reckons he'd been listening to a fair bit of Lennon when he wrote the hook for 'fOoL fOr YoU;' the album's proper big ballad moment.

Chatting to NME, Zayn said: "I was listening to a lot of John Lennon the week I got that loop. And there was this one song I got addicted to, with Indian music at the front of it, sitar, and then it becomes, like, another song."

The mag confirmed he's actually on about The Beatles' tune 'Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds,' so there you go.

Zayn added that he hopes we can all connect with the album on our own personal level, saying: "It's really reflective of the whole experience that I want to give the listener. I wanted it to be almost like a brainstorm. It's just music and it's just whatever you're feeling at that moment in time
