Oh snap! Zayn Malik could care less that some of his former bandmates from One Direction think his first solo single is a snoozer. As has EXCLUSIVELY learned, he’s not even aiming at pleasing his old band’s fans!

YASS!! We are completely in love with Zayn Malik‘s new single “Pillowtalk” and can’t get it out of our heads, which is exactly the way the 23-year-0ld wants it. It’s sexy, soulful and smooth…and even NSFW with its lyrics, in other words, about as far off as anything he ever did with One Direction. has the EXCLUSIVE details about why Zayn’s interested in making music for a whole new set of fans, and doesn’t care at all that Harry Styles thinks his new song is totally lame!

“Whether they like it or not, they are not his fan-base. He can’t spend time focusing on their thoughts,” a source tells EXCLUSIVELY about the guys from 1D. “He is happy how things are working out and he clearly is excited for the future and all that it has to bring.” He certainly should be, as the singer got had so much amazing feedback about his new, very adult solo song. Not only that, he’s dropping his full debut album Mind of Mine on March 25. If that date seems familiar to 1D fans, it should because it’s the one year anniversary of when he announced he was quitting the band! Talk about a major diss. Stream music from Zayn, 1D and more ad-free RIGHT HERE.

As we previously told you EXCLUSIVELY, Harry thinks Zayn’s new song is a total bore. “Harry thinks it is called Pillowtalk because the song puts you to sleep. He really doesn’t think that it is as good as anything that 1D has done with or without Zayn,” our source revealed.  But Zayn has said he doesn’t want his music to resemble anything that the band did, as he revealed in a recent interview that he was so unhappy with the band’s music, he wanted out within their first year together!

HollywoodLifers, do you love Zayn’s new song? Or do you agree with Harry that his music with 1D was better?
