Zayn Malik may cover his girlfriend, Gigi Hadid, with kisses in the sexy video for ‘Pillowtalk,’ but is the former One Direction singer’s new single really about his former fiancée, Perrie Edwards? Zayn admitted that he wrote the hot track while he and Perrie were still engaged!
Zayn Malik’s new song, “Pillow Talk,” is really, really hot. No wonder the 23-year-old singer and Gigi Hadid, 20, started making out during the track’s music video. But was Zayn kissing Gigi to a tune he actually wrote about his ex, Perrie Edwards, 20?
While speaking with Zane Lowe in an interview for Apple Music Beats 1, Zayn said he started and writing his album, Mind of Mine, two months after splitting from One Direction, according to the Daily Mail. That would mean he wrote “Pillowtalk” while he and the Little Mix singer were still together. Gasp!
While Zayn didn’t come out and admit that “Pillowtalk” was about Perrie, the timing is interesting, considering the lyrics to the song contain lines like, “A place that is so pure, so dirty and raw/ Be in the bed all day, bed all day, bed all day / F*cking you, and fighting on / It’s our paradise and it’s our war zone.”
“Pillowtalk” may not be the only song about Perrie on Zayn’s new album. During the interview with Zane, the ex-1D member said that he also wrote “It’s You” about his ex-fiancée. “I just felt like I needed to put myself out there on that just because it was a form of therapy for me and it did help get me through some sh*t,” Zayn said. You can listen to all of Zayn’s tunes – and more – by streaming music, unlimited and ad-free, right here.
Perrie might not be rushing out to buy Mind of Mine when it’s drops on March 25 – one year after Zayn broke up with his band. In Dec. 2015, Perrie said she was still recovering from Zayn’s decision to call off their two-year engagement. “I learn new things every day, but I’ve learned that no matter what life throws at you, you take it day-by-day,” Perrie told The Sun. “I guess the one plus side is that it is like a looking glass for other women to look in and relate to.”
Gigi didn’t seem bothered that the song may have been about Zayn’s ex. After the video was released, both she and Zayn flirted over Twitter! They complimented each other in the sweetest — and hottest — way, with Zayn calling her “babe” and Gigi being sly with her emoji game. We see you, Zizi – flirting and being all cute like that!
Do you think that “Pillowtalk” is really about Perrie, HollywoodLifers? What do you think about the song?
