Zayn and One Direction fans, you may be hating on the former boy bander right now, or you may be standing by your man. In either case, whether you love him or hate him, you HAVE to admit that his song is beautiful!
Zayn Malik’s New Solo Song — ‘I Won’t Mind’ Is A Haunting Love Ballad
Naughty Boy, 30, sent your fans into a full-on frenzy in the middle of the early morning hours, UK time, March 31, by unexpectedly leaking your new, up- until- then rumored track, after having a major tweet war between himself and your former bandmate, Louis Tomlinson.
It certainly appears that Naughty was naughty and released ,”I Won’t Mind”, in retaliation, after Louis, 23, tweeted that he was “inconsiderate” and also told him to “grow up”.
This can’t be the way that you envisioned your new sound coming into the world. But it did. And boy, is the song ever great!
“I Won’t Mind” is a haunting love ballad that even in its unfinished state, perfectly showcases your powerfully emotional voice. Is it about your deep love for fiancee Perrie Edwards and the problems you two have encountered? It could be. It certainly feels heartfelt:
You sing: “Don’t look around cause love is blind/And darling right now, I can’t see you/I’m feeling proud so without a doubt, I can feel you.”
Well, Zayn, we certainly feel you too!
Fans Blast Zayn & His New Song On Twitter
At first after the song’s release, your own fans and those of One Direction, were furious at what they saw at the betrayal of your former bandmates, and you lost over 50,000 Twitter followers in a few hours.
Patricia blasted you:

I get it 1Ders. You’re entitled to your opinions. But really, fans, you can’t let your disappointment in Zayn for leaving the band color your judgment on the song itself.
“I Won’t Mind” is breathtakingly beautiful and it has “hit” just emanating out of every note.
Fans Take To Social Media To Weigh In On ‘I Won’t Mind’
Fortunately, less than a day later, as Zayn jetted away on a plane with fiancee Perrie, 21, fans have begun to listen and are begrudgingly judging the song on its own merits. And many are beginning to rave.
Laura is typical:

5h beat 5sos predicts it will be a huge hit:

Even non-fans like Suziesherbert are giving it props:
Zayn Malik’s song is annoyingly good, I’m not a 1D fan and even I think that he’s betrayed them, if you’re gonna go solo be honest about it

Well, HollywoodLifers — you need to decide for yourselves. Take a listen now to “I Won’t Mind” and tell me what you think. Do you love it?
