Best cover ever! JoJo took on Zayn Malik’s ‘Pillowtalk’ during her show in London, and her version practically outdid Zayn’s. Watch her amazing rendition of Zayn’s single right here!
JoJo proved her Zayn Malik love in the most epic way possible: A flawless cover of his song! While performing at London’s O2 Academy Islington, the 25-year-old singer sang Zayn’s hit “Pillowtalk,” giving the sensual song a soulfully romantic rendition that doesn’t just do the track justice — it was almost even better than the original! Give JoJo’s cover a listen and see what you think of it!
Before busting out the song’s first note, JoJo introduced the song to her sold-out crowd. “London I’ve been waiting this tour to perform this song for you,” she said. “London’s own, UK’s own…” She wasted no time getting into the song, immediately channeling Zayn’s sultry vibe. JoJo gave “Pillowtalk” with her own twists, adding some chilling vocal runs as well as effortless falsetto during the bridge. Needless to say, she did an insane job covering Zayn’s hit, and we’re sure he’d be proud!
Come to think of it, we have yet to hear Zayn sing “Pillowtalk” live himself. Instead of performing the single when he was on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon on Feb. 17, he decided to debut his song “It’s You” instead. Until we hear Zayn belt out his hit live, at least we have JoJo’s incredible rendition to hold us over!
With the release of Zayn’s solo album, Mind of Mine, just around the corner, hopefully that day will come sooner than later. The album drops March 25, and Zayn has been totally hyping us up for the big day by giving us a taste of his new tunes. He even admitted that his music may make people want to have sex! Considering JoJo’s version — plus her sexy dance moves — was practically even more sensual than Zayn’s, we don’t really doubt that!
