It’s a clash of the ex-bandmates — and it’s incredible! A Twitter user created a mashup of Zayn Malik’s ‘Pillowtalk’ and One Direction’s ‘End Of The Day,’ and it’s an epic reminder of the boys’ days as a fivesome. Listen to the remix here!
Zayn Malik may not be on the best terms with One Direction now, but their music certainly meshes amazingly well! Although Zayn is on a more R&B track since leaving the group, his song “Pillowtalk” happens to sound great with 1D’s “End Of The Day.” The guys might not be too thrilled to hear their songs being remixed together, but we’re absolutely swooning over it!
Who knew we’d hear Zayn in a One Direction song in 2016? Okay, he’s not actually in the song, but we could almost be fooled that he is thanks to this remix! A Twitter user named Eminik Official somehow came up with the brilliant idea to mix Zayn’s single with one of his former band’s tracks from Made In The A.M., their post-Zayn album — and did a phenomenal job with it. Talk about giving us all the feels!
The song caters more to the R&B feel of “Pillowtalk,” giving “End Of The Day” the slow-jam treatment. But Eminik managed to make it sound like a completely different song by backing the remix with a light EDM beat. Take a listen to it and see what you think!

Okay, this is seriously the work of a genius. The original songs hardly sound anything like each other, so our minds are blown! But considering the bad blood that Zayn has created with the boys since leaving One Direction in March 2015, we’re thinking they might not be so enamored with the mashup. In fact, Zayn has trashed 1D’s music, saying it was “never cool” — so hearing how well his song mashes with theirs might even bum him out!
Then again, One Direction is how Zayn got his start, and it’s hard to deny that his voice fit perfectly with the rest of the guys’. And they recently paid tribute to Zayn in their video for “History,” so clearly they miss him a little bit! Instead of making them all upset, maybe this remix will convince them that they need to work together again? How amazing that would be!
