We are dead! Zayn Malik promised earlier in the day before his big ‘Tonight Show’ debut that he might have a surprise for us in store, and boy did he ever! He performed his brand new song ‘It’s You’ on Feb. 17, and we’re blown away. Listen to it here!
Best news ever!! Zayn Malik, 23, blessed us with the debut of his new ballad “It’s You” when he stopped by The Tonight Show on Feb. 17, and the new single is so completely amazing, we can’t get it out of our heads. It was going to be pretty tough to top his amazing debut single “Pillowtalk” but we think Zayn just outdid himself! The song showcases his high vocal range with a soaring chorus that is just so beautiful. AND, what’s even better, is it’s the song he previously confirmed is about ex Perrie Edwards!
Can March 25 just hurry up and get here already? That’s when Zayn is finally dropping his first solo album Mind of Mine and if the first two songs off of it are any indication, it’s going to be jam-packed with major hits. Zayn performed the slow and dreamy ballad “It’s You” on his first appearance with Jimmy Fallon and we could not love it more!
Zayn looked super sexy in a black shirt, long coat and pants and his hair still has the pink highlights that look so great on him. We also got a first look at Mind of Mine‘s album cover art, which features an angelic looking photo of Zayn as a child, but he has tattoos superimposed all over his hands and arms.
“I just feel like I needed to get myself out there on that just because it was a form of therapy for me and it did help me get through some shit,” he told Beats 1 in January, after confirming the song is about Perrie. “So if it can help somebody else at that time, then that’s cool.”
With the massive success of “Pillowtalk,” this brand new sexy ballad is such an amazing follow-up and shows off Zayn’s personal musical style perfectly. It’s pretty clear that he wasn’t kidding during all the disses he made about how much he hated One Direction‘s super pop musical style. He’s totally his own person now and letting his hot and soulful solo work speak for himself as an artist, and we couldn’t love it more of we tried!
