Remember how the Bradford bad boi was famed for his high notes during his time with One Direction? Well, they’re back. Ooh.

At precisely two minutes and 16 seconds into the song, he cuts clean through the synths and drums with a seriously impressive falsetto.

Gushing messages included: ‘Zayn’s high note in BeFoUr… I’ve never screamed so late at this hour,’ and: ‘Zayn’s high note in BeFoUr bye i’m dead.’

But some people couldn’t help reading a little more into Zayn’s moody ditty.

There have been suggestions that BeFoUr may make more than a few references to Zayn’s past life with his 1D bandmates.

Some have even described it as an ‘open letter’ to the band.

For example, the lyric: ‘I’m gonna stay in my zone,’ has been linked to the fact that he’s had more creative control since going solo last March.

‘No strings for you to pull on’ could have a similar double meaning, in that he’s no longer a ‘puppet’ for the pop industry.

Oh. And let’s talk about that capped-up F and U in the title. Could that possibly be a big ol’ ‘f*** you’ to someone? Hmmm…

Whatever the case, we’re pretty sure it’s gonna be one huge hit.
