After announcing that he was leaving One Direction and going solo, ZAYN Malik experienced a considerable amount of criticism and scrutiny. After all, touring the world with Harry Styles and the rest of 1D was the reason ZAYN was a household name, did he really have what it was going to take to go solo?
Apparently, he did. After inking a solo deal with RCA Records, the first official single he released debuted at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, a feat achieved by only 25 other songs, and one that will definitely set Malik’s solo career on fire. To build on the #1 success of “Pillow Talk,” ZAYN taps Lil Wayne for the remix to the song, which you can listen to here on Apple Music.
