Zayn Malik fans… we have some very exciting news for you.
The ex-One Direction singer has announced that he’ll be releasing his first solo single this week!
It’d previously been reported that Zayn would wait two years before heading into the studio, but there was clearly no way he wanted to wait that long.
Zayn, 23, confirmed on Twitter yesterday that his debut track will be named Pillowtalk and will be available to buy from 29 January (Friday).
He did this by posting what appeared to be the CD artwork, which showed off his chest and arm tatts as he lounged around topless in a sexy black and white shot.
Zayn has stayed very secretive about what kind of sound he’s going for, but has hinted in the past that it’ll be worlds away from the music he made with 1D.
What we do know is that producer James ‘Malay’ Ho has been working on his forthcoming album, having previously teamed up with stars including John Legend and Alicia Keys.
However, Zayn has given us a clue as to what Pillowtalk is about – and it’s pretty raunchy. Eek!
Talking to The Sunday Times, he says: ‘Everybody has sex, and it’s something people want to hear about.
‘It’s part of everybody’s life, a very big part of life! And you don’t want to sweep it under the carpet. It has to be talked about.’
He added that Pillowtalk is ‘so pure, so dirty and raw’ and that it’s ‘pretty black and white about what it’s about.’
Zayn – who left One Direction last March – was previously engaged to Little Mix’s Perrie Edwards and is currently dating Victoria’s Secret model Gigi Hadid.
While he hasn’t mentioned the single being about either of these ladies, there’s no doubt it’s going to get people talking.
Whatever the case, we can’t wait to hear it!
