Zayn Malik is giving us all the feels! He released the music video for his new song, ‘It’s You,’ and he Zayn eerily manages to make you feel the same pain he’s going through. Watch the heart-rending vid here!
Thanks to Zayn Malik‘s model girlfriend, Gigi Hadid, his first video as a solo artist was super sexy. But his latest song, “It’s You,” was inspired by his ex, Perrie Edwards, and the video for it isn’t quite so steamy — in fact, it’s pretty emotionally intense! The 23-year-old singer channeled all of the feelings involved in a breakup in the black-and-white vid, but we’re totally loving it!
As Zayn walks around a big house, he looks incredibly pained and pensive, making us feel for him and swoon at the same time. The video features the beautiful Nicola Peltz from Bates Motel being brutally unfaithful to the singer and leaving him in the dust. The black and white slow-mo looks like a super cool short film, it’s the kind of creative thing that makes Zayn so special. You’ve gotta watch it and see for yourself! YOU CAN BUY THE MUSIC VIDEO RIGHT HERE ON ITUNES.
Before Zayn put out the “It’s You” video, he dropped the song just prior to singing it on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon. With its hauntingly slow melody and dreamy falsetto chorus, “It’s You” gave us an inkling that Zayn’s vid for the song would have a much sadder theme — and definitely wouldn’t star Gigi.
In fact, Zayn opened up about the song’s meaning ahead of its release, revealing that the track was part of his healing process after splitting with Perrie in August 2015. “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***,” he told Zane Lowe of the song. He certainly conveyed those emotions in the video!
Zayn’s solo album, Mind Of Mine — of which he revealed the adorable cover on Feb. 18 — won’t be available until March 25, but with the way Zayn has been dropping his new material, we wouldn’t be surprised to hear more until the CD arrives! He gave fans “Pillowtalk” and “It’s You” (plus the videos for both) within a few weeks of each other, so now he has us eager for more. But even if this is all we get until March 25, we’re not complaining!
