Pain and loss of breaking up with Gigi Hadid led Zayn Malik to new single 'Let Me,' his most confident single so far
The song is peppy and groovy at the same time - Zayn says he feels much more confident this time around and wants to tell his fans what's really going on
Zayn Malik's life hasn't been a bed of roses recently - he split up with girlfriend of two years supermodel Gigi Hadid, in what looked like an amicable goodbye at first, only to get a little ugly later. But Zayn is back on his feet - his broody Instagram days are over and he's got a new song out.
The best thing about Zayn has always been that he keeps it real - like in this recent chat with BBC Radio One, he didn't hesitate to say that he's working on some heartaches that still hurt him. He confessed that he is more confident this time around, with his music especially, because he had been "working on a lot of personal issues."
The 25-year-old crooner, speaking about his latest single 'Let Me' said, "this time around I feel like I am more confident and I really believe in what's going on, so I want to convey that to my fans." He also added that his solo debut may not have been his best. "I didn't know what was going on for a while. I was just putting out a record and not really being as prominent as I wanted to be."
You can definitely see the difference in the Zayn Malik now - he sounds grown up in his lyrics and his tones. Fans are in a guessing frenzy about the Gigi references in the video, where Zayn stars as Roko. To begin with, the model Sofia Jamora looks like a splitting image of his ex G - she's got the same waves, the same soft glam makeup and not to mention similar long legs.
He sings, "Baby let me be your man. So I can love you. And if you let me be your man, then I'll take care of you." sounds quite similar to the rumors that swirled after Zigi's split, no? References or not the song is a peppy number with signature Zayn vocals - high and totally groove-worthy.
