“PILLOWTALK,” the first single by ZAYN, was released Jan. 29, 2015. The single is a slow beat and sultry song that contains catchy lyrics. The single is a nice start for Zayn and his career.

Zain Javadd Malik, better known as Zayn, is an English singer and songwriter. Zayn began his career in 2010 by appearing on The X Factor, which he originally auditioned for as a solo artist. He was brought back after the audition, along with four other boys, and began the boy band “One Direction.” During his time in the band, they released four albums, performed on multiple tours, and won numerous awards.

In March 2015, Zayn left the band to sign a solo recording contract with RCA Records. Zayn plans to release his first solo album, “Mind of Mine,” March 25. “PILLOWTALK” will be included as one of the songs on the upcoming album.

Overall, “PILLOWTALK” is fun to listen to on the radio. It’s one of those songs that are catchy, but nothing over the top. The single is a great start to Zayn’s solo career and an excellent sneak peek into his upcoming album.
