Did Zayn Malik really make an album with songs perfect for sexy time? Was “Mind of Mine” really leaked?
According to Perez Hilton, the “highly anticipated record” was not leaked ahead of its release next week. However, the former One Direction singer did release a handful of previews to his upcoming album. He teased several snippets of his new songs on the video streaming app, Periscope.
Malik also sat down with Complex to talk about his new songs. “It’s a very sexual album,” Zayn told Complex. When asked if it was his intention to make music people can play in the bedroom, his response was simple. “[I]f that’s something that they would choose to do, then yeah…I’m sure it could fit into that scenario,” he said.
Listen to snippets of the “Mind of Mine” album from Zayn himself.
Zayn released a new track, “BeFoUr,” last week. It was previously speculated that “BeFoUr” might be a jab at his former band, One Direction. Zayn broke off from the band last year to start a solo career. Since he left, he admitted that he was never a fan of the music they made as a band. “There was never any room for me to experiment creatively in the band…That’s not music that I would listen to. Would you listen to One Direction, sat at a party with your girl? I wouldn’t,” he told Mail Online.
Zayn’s first single off his debut album, “Pillowtalk,” earlier made US charts history. The track made him the first British singer to debut at No. 1 in Billboard Hot 100. This is a feat One Direction has yet to achieve.
