The most anticipated moment of 2016 has arrived… Zayn’s first single, as a solo artist, has been released and the reactions to it were just all together incredible.
Even with the clear tone of the song being about sex, Zayn portrayed the woman as art, not objects. With swirling colors, exploding flowers, and kaleidoscope scenes, the video, which can be watched here, definitely met all of our aesthetic needs.
The music video and the lyrics are just spectacular.
We have managed to acquire a hearty amount of reviews on Zayn’s Pillowtalk. Here’s what fans are saying:
“Zayn’s first single really represents to me the reason he left the band. While the subject matter is relatively simple- sex- the lyrics still manage to be revolutionary for the previous boyband member. Zayn is no longer hiding his “reckless behavior” and I think anyone who has been creatively stifled in any way can appreciate that. I can’t wait to see what else Zayn brings to the table after such a strong start,” – @Z016Aesthetic via Twitter
“As a One Direction fan since the beginning it was incredible to watch him grow and progress as an artist. This being his first single as just Zayn, not Zayn from One Direction was amazing to see. The song is different from his work with the band, and it’s nice to see that he was was able to come out of his shell and show us his real talent on his own, the song shows how powerful his voice really is and how amazing he can do on his own.” – @alexneade via Twitter
“I love it! I’m getting throwback Chris Brown vibes mixed with Frank Ocean and besides the raunchy lyrics it’s not too far of a stretch off of what One Direction offered but we’ll see once the album drops, I’m hoping for more pure R&B.” – @niallhauren via Twitter
Other fans have stated that his songs, “speak the truth,” “deep,” and “mix of pop and r&b”.
