Christ, where do we even start? In short, Zayn Malik's just released the music video for his first Mind of Mine single 'Pillowtalk,' it stars his girlfriend Gigi Hadid, the song's bloody brilliant and people who considered themselves too cool for One Direction will like it.
For the sake of us being paid a wage as employed journalists, former One Direction star Zayn Malik's just released the Bouha Kazmi-directed clip for his FIRST EVER SOLO SINGLE; and it sort of looks like your Tumblr dash in music video form. Oh, and you can guarantee this is gonna be Liam Payne's new jam. It's right up his street.
He also says 'f**king' in it, 'cos by the way he used to be in a manufactured boy band but now he's not.
LOOK, a visual example of just how edgy and refreshing it all is:
We know there's a lot to discuss here, but the best way we can describe the Make You Know Love-produced track is 'sort of like The Weeknd with a soaring, anthemic chorus.' That makes us sound like serious music journos, right?
What we're trying to say is that he's served that Z016 Zaddy slow jam we've been waiting for. Also the 'we'll piss off the neighbours' line is a) amazing and b) ringing very true to life rn as we proclaim 'IT'S OUR PARADISE AND IT'S OUR WARZONE' in the shower at 7am.
The video's edgiest moments? Well:
This Zigi kiss:
This woman's vagina, which appears to have been replaced with a lotus flower. OOH KEWL:
Zayn crying blood, which we're pretty sure isn't supposed to happen:
Anyway we're literally boring ourselves and we wanna keep you as engaged as possible, so HERE IT IS LOOK IT'S AMAZING:
So dirty and raw indeed. Also some of it look a bit like Calvin Harris's 'How Deep Is Your Love' video. Just an observation.
