Zayn Malik’s all about his hot new solo career, but he still knows where he came from! The sexy singer said in a new radio interview that he was really happy to be included in 1D’s ‘History’ video! Click through to listen to him explain!
This is such a relief to hear! Zayn Malik, 23, isn’t weirded out that One Direction included him in their video for “History,” a song they recorded long after he was out of the band. In fact, he was thrilled to find out that footage of him in the early days of the band made it into the music video, he told UK radio show Zach Sang & The Gang on February 2! Click through to hear him explain — fast forward to about 9:00 for the 1D part!
“Yeah I liked the fact that they were nostalgic, shall we say, about the memories that we shared,” Zayn said about his former bandmates’ music video. “And it was a positive thing, there was nothing negative about it, and it was nice to look back at the memories we shared together; it was cool.”
Very mature, very sweet! One Direction was a massive part of Zayn’s past, and there’s no way he could ever deny that. And it would be very strange if the band made a video about their history without including him; he’s only been out of the fold for a year, so his absence would be very conspicuous! Though there have been innumerable reports of sore feelings and feuding after the band’s split, it seems that deep down, they’re all still brothers at heart. Don’t you love it?
In the rest of the interview, Zayn also dishes a tiny bit about his romance with Gigi Hadid, 20, because host Zach Sang kind of forces him to do it! They were deep in conversation about his super sexy “Pillowtalk” music video, in which he does some snogging and groping with Gigi, and he slyly asks him “No one easier to make out with than your own girlfriend, right?” Zayn pauses awkwardly and says “Exactly…I like what you’ve done there.” Nice pull, Zach!
