OMG! Did Zayn Malik just release new cover art for ‘Mind of Mine?’ A new photo of the ‘Pillowtalk’ singer is making its way around the Internet and this time, he’s ditching the baby photo look for a whole new sexy vibe. We’re talking Zayn in all of his shirtless glory here people! Click here to see the pic!
Zayn Malik is all grown-up! After catching some heat for the original Mind of Mine cover art that he released featuring a photo of him as a young kid, the “Pillowtalk” singer appears to have had a change of heart as a new, alternate album cover is now making its way around the Internet and it’s beyond hot! The British singer appears totally shirtless in the new pic, but is it better than the original cover? See for yourself!
Just when we thought we couldn’t get any more excited for Zayn’s debut solo album, the singer goes and gives us THIS! In what appears to be an alternate album cover that was revealed via Amazon France on March 3, Zayn goes for a completely different look by posing as his own sexy grown-up self. Unlike the original artwork, which featured a photo of him as adorable, smiling child, the newest cover sees the singer stripping down to show off his impressive set of ink, and oh yeah, those insane abs! Excuse us, while we continue to swoon!
While we certainly aren’t complaining about his newest artwork, we can’t help but wonder if the alternative cover has anything to do with the amount of flack he got over the album’s original cover art release. As previously reported, not everyone was on board with Zayn’s tattooed baby photo, as some were quick to point out that it seemed to rip off Lil Wayne‘s, 33, 2008 and 2011 album covers. But before you go getting any crazy idea, know this: Zayn is no copycat! “I’m not tryna be no rapper, my album is me a child.. My ideas have been with me a long time,” Zayn tweeted on Thursday, Feb. 18, the day after his album cover was revealed on The Tonight Show. You tell them, Zayn! “Use your brain, appreciate art don’t discriminate what you don’t understand,” Zayn continued, seriously slamming those who were accusing him of stealing the idea from Lil Wayne.
And just to prove that there wasn’t any beef between them, Zayn actually went ahead and released a killer “Pillowtalk” remix with the rapper, which basically means that it’s now even more NSFW than it originally was. In the song, Weezy raps about “f–king and fighting” as Zayn’s chorus kicks in, while also adding plenty of his own swagger to the song, with lines like, “Make her jump through the roof /Now she touching the moon/And she love when we spoon” before he gets way more graphic about the hot encounter he’s describing. It brings the song to an entirely new level, and can’t get enough of it! CLICK HERE to listen to it!
Additionally, Zayn has also teamed up with fellow super stars Chris Brown, 26, and Usher, 37, on a smoking hot remix of Breezy’s “Back To Sleep.” No word yet if the song will make an appearance on Mind of Mine, but you can bet the album is going to be well worth the listen regardless. Seriously, March 25 can not come fast enough!
