Red Light Love! ZAYN Romances A Stripper In His “Entertainer” Video
Zayn Malik’s sophomore era is shaping up to be an eclectic affair. From the soaring, Sia-assisted ballad “Dusk Till Dawn” to the sugary sweet “Let Me,” it looks like the Brit is yet to settle on a signature sound. And the search continues with “Entertainer.” The weakest of the three singles by some margin, this Drake-channeling breakup anthem comes across as more than a little bitter. And then, there’s the cliche-ridden video, which finds the 25-year-old romancing a stripper.
While “Entertainer” is not for me, it does sound very on-trend and streaming-friendly, and the other two songs are more than enough to hold my interest for his new album. “It’s going to be different than anything anyone has done before,” Zayn boasted to Zane Lowe on Beats 1. “It’s going to be interesting to see how the audience reacts to this kind of release. I wanted to try something different. I think it’s all going to make sense in the end when the album finally drops.” Watch the video for the hitmaker’s latest offering up top.
