But is it a worthy followup to his hit “Pillowtalk”? Listen and see if you’re aurally stimulated…
It’s…not bad. I love, love “Pillowtalk” (minus that awkward and awful video) so it was going to be hard to top that tune. I’m not sure “It’s You” accomplished it, although I do love the dreamy depressing vibe.
Maybe this bit of gossip behind the lyrics will help you fall in love with it: Z has admitted that the song is about his breakup with ex-fiancee Perrie Edwards, who he very possibly dumped via text message. While he’s kept super mum on their split in the past, he explains his reasoning for opening up now: “There’s always a fine line with that. I just felt like I needed to put myself out there a bit on that because it was a form of therapy for me, and it did help me get through some s**t,” Zayn said during a recent interview. “So if it can help someone else at that time, then that’s cool.”
No news on when an official video will drop but probably soon. Although, Z, if you’re planning on putting Gigi Hadid in yet another video, please go back to the drawing board. Also please start over with the album cover:
Uh, didn’t Lil Wayne already do this: put a pic of himself as a kid but photoshop all his current tats? Sorry, Z, but it’s not exactly an original idea.
Are you swooning over Zayn’s new music or will he never quite come close to the success he had in One Direction?
