Yes, it is true! We’re not the only ones gushing over Zayn Malik’s ‘Pillowtalk’ because Sir Elton John just admitted he’s a fan of his big hit too! HollywoodLife.com has all the details here.
When Elton John, 68, praises your work, you know you’re doing something right! Zayn Malik, 23, has a lot to be excited for and what Elton said about his latest song “Pillowtalk,” should make him proud of himself too. Read all the details of what the legendary singer said about him below.
Zayn’s latest single is getting praise from everyone includin Elton who also loves “Pillowtalk”. “Zayn has done unbelievably well,” the music icon told the Daily Star. “I don’t really know Zayn as well as I know the other four but I think he has released a great pop song.” Wow, what a compliment!
Zayn isn’t the only former One Directioner that Elton adores. It looks like he would be happy to offer Harry Styles any advice he asked for! “I’ve talked to a few of the One Direction boys. I’ve seen Harry a few times who is great and I’m always on hand to offer him advice.” Who knew Elton was such a 1-D fan!
Elton is also no stranger to being a mentor to other great young artists! He has mentored Tom Odell, Sam Smith, and the amazing Ed Sheeran. That is definitely a great track record! It turns out that Elton’s advice to Ed was pretty helpful. “I don’t manage him on a day-to-day basis but I’ve given him two great bits of advice which was to go on tour with Taylor Swift and to release Sing as the first single. He wasn’t sure about both but I told him if he wanted instant exposure to go with it.” Well, it looks like Zayn should be open to taking some of Elton’s advice one day!
Elton has also been in the spotlight for his latest “carpool karaoke” with James Corden that was aired after Super Bowl 50. This might have been one of the most epic carpool video’s by far. If you haven’t seen it you’re missing out!
