Zayn Malik gets dirty with Gigi Hadid for ‘Pillowtalk’, his first single since splitting from 1D


Ex One Dimension star Zayn Malik has sent fans wild with the release of his raunchy new single Pillowtalk, getting down and dirty with Gigi Hadid in the wild new clip .


Now almost a year on since he left behind the guys from One Direction, the singer has ditched the squeaky clean image that the boys had cultivated to pursue an edgier aesthetic. The new single was going to be “dirty and raw” according to Malik and the heavy beat laden, f-bomb peppered track certainly delivered above and beyond any expectations.


“F***ing you and fighting on, it’s our paradise and it’s our war zone,” sings Zayn, as he repeats: “In your bed all day, bed all day, bed all day.


Malik doesn’t hold back in the clip either, getting steamy on screen with Gigi Hadid. The trippy, kaleidescopic clip is ripe with innuendo, showing roses blooming and shows them crying blood tears.



In a new interview with Sunday Times Culture magazine, Zayn said Pillowtalk is as “so pure, so dirty and raw,” insisting he’s not sugarcoating the issue of sex. “I think I’m pretty black and white about what it’s about,” he continued.


Though “Pillowtalk” is the first full single we’ve heard from Zayn, a snippet of a new song called “Befour” was previously featured in a video accompanying his Fader magazine profile. Both tracks are expected to appear on Mind Of Mine, which is due to arrive early this spring, according to Billboard.
