Former 1Direction frontman releases his (highly anticipated) first single off forth-coming solo album. I think that the lyrics really capture exactly what his message was trying to convey. Below we have found an interview snippet about the new song from former 1D Zayn Malik.
Zayn Malik Explains The Real Meaning Behind ‘Pillowtalk’: It’s Not Only About Sex “It is about sex, there is obviously sex in a relationship. It’s not the whole incentive of the song though,” revealed the 23-year-old artist on Elvis Duran and The Z100 Morning Show on Feb. 2. So if Zayn’s super hot song, “Pillowtalk,” is NOT all about sex, then what IS it about? “The actual intent of the song is even though you have great times in a relationship, you have really bad times as well but that’s what makes it worth while because you learn things and you go through experiences that bring you closer together.”
In an interview with the Sunday Times, former One Directioner Zayn Malik opened up about the, er, mature lyrical content on his debut solo single “Pillowtalk.” “Everybody has [it], and it’s something people wanna hear about. It’s part of everybody’s life, a very big part of life,” he stated. Personally, I’m over pop songs about romantic hetero-centric relations, but that’s just me.
According to the Daily Mail, Zayn may have wrote “Pillowtalk” while still with his ex, Little Mix member Perrie Edwards. A little awkward, if that’s the case, since Zayn’s new girlfriend Gigi Hadid stars in the music video.
