Since its release on March 23rd, “Still Got Time” has been trending all over social media and music charts. The smash hit, featuring rapper PARTYNEXTDOOR, is hinted to be Zayn’s first single off his second album according to press releases last month.
Back in March, Zayn announced the new single and said it was coming soon; only for it to be released two days later. As far as the music video release, fans have had to wait a little longer. On March 30th, a fan asked when the music video would be released and Zayn gave the same reply. Soon. Well, apparently this time, soon meant a little less than a month.

The video features a dazed Zayn, who has thrown his own house party that features drinking, spray-paint, tattoo artists, and even exotic animals. The video was actually filmed at his own house in London in early April.
Calmatic, who has worked with Kendrick Lamar and Anderson .Paak, directed the video for Zayn. According to Complex Magazine, Calmatic said, “I was asleep in L.A. when I got a call from Luti Media and Zayn’s management at 7 a.m. They told me to hop on the next flight to London. It was my first time in London so I didn’t know what to expect. When I got there we met at his crib and he said he wanted to throw the wildest house party imaginable. So we invited everyone we knew and let the cameras roll. The rest is history.”
The tropical, laid-back beat of the song really fits the chill vibe of the video where most of the party-goers focus is to have a good time. The vibe of the video is also enhanced by the video quality and filtering as it is made to look like was filmed on a phone or filmed from the point of view of someone at the party. The quality almost gives you an inside scoop on what it would be like to party with Zayn.
To say the video is anything less than steamy would be a lie. Zayn really stepped outside of the box and wasn’t afraid to keep his video almost uncensored. Just see for yourself! Click below to watch the full music video for “Still Got Time”.
In addition to the video, five “Still Got Time” remixes were also released today. The song was remixed and given its own flare by Team Salut, Ray Blk, Vindata, Devi, and House Party. The “Still Got Time” remixes EP can be found on Apple Music here.
