Grab the tissues, Zerrie fans! Zayn Malik revealed in a new interview that one of the songs on his upcoming solo album is all about his breakup with Perrie Edwards, and it was totally therapeutic for him. See his emotional confession here!
When Zayn Malik releases his solo album, we’ll definitely be seeing a new side of the former One Direction member than we’ve ever seen — one that is finally opening up about his breakup with Perrie Edwards. Neither Zayn nor Perrie have been very vocal about their split since breaking off their two-year engagement, but fans will finally get a glimpse into what happened thanks to a new song on Zayn’s record. In his first interview about the album, Zayn revealed that he wrote “It’s You” all about Perrie, which helped him get through the heartbreak!
“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 s***,” Zayn admitted to Zane Lowe on Beats 1. “So if it can help somebody else at that time, then that’s cool.”
Okay, excuse us while we cry a little! Although Zayn was reportedly the one who broke things off, breakups are never easy, and clearly he was still affected by the whole thing. Plus, now he wants to use his music to help his fans cope with their own breakups…this is just too much!
Zayn didn’t elaborate on what the song will sound like or how detailed it will be, but it will definitely be interesting to hear his take on the whole thing. The breakup was obviously hard on Perrie, as she broke down on stage with Little Mix just a few weeks after her split with Zayn, but he hasn’t exactly seemed to torn up over it. In fact, he sparked romance rumors with a PR girl named Carlyn Bryan less than two months after becoming single, and now he’s supposedly dating Gigi Hadid!
But even though Zayn has seemed to have no problem moving on from Perrie, he also hasn’t held back from expressing his thoughts about One Direction in recent interviews. So despite his lack of talking about Perrie, maybe his song about her will finally expose his feelings. It was like therapy for him to write it, after all — that has to mean it’ll be juicy, right?!
