Zayn Malik's "Pillow Talk" Is All About Sex
Zayn Malik's debut solo single "Pillow Talk" is a dirty bedroom romp.

Hopefully Rihanna enjoyed her short reign on the iTunes chart with “Work,” before Zayn Malik‘s debut solo single, “Pillowtalk,” came along and seduced the music-purchasing masses.

With “Pillowtalk,” Zayn makes his bid not only as a viable artist outside of One Direction, the band he quit just 10 months ago, but also as a swoon-worthy crooner setting up stakes on the same block where Miguel and Frank Ocean live in music land.

To emphasize that Malik’s squeaky-clean boy band days are far behind him, there are plenty of eff bombs in the synth-fueled slow jam — in the very literal sense of the four letter word — and various NSFW shots of barely-clothed ladies. Along for the sexy ride is Malik’s model girlfriend, Gigi Hadid, who spends the clip locking lips with the singer. The main takeaway here: Zayn is all grown up — way up — now.

“Pillowtalk” is the first single off Zayn’s debut album Mind Of Mine, which now has a March 25 release date via RCA.
