Zayn Malik woke us all up on Sept. 7 to unleash his newest single, and I'm not mad about it. Zayn Malik's "Dusk Till Dawn" features Sia on vocals, but even more celebrities in the high-adrenaline music video. The video is action-packed and has a super sexy vibe.
The "Still Got Time" singer announced the release via social media on Friday, Sept. 1, giving fans almost a whole week to prepare. Much appreciated, Zayn. The artwork was definitely mysterious. The neon lettering mixed with old-school painted characters gave the whole thing a very retro feel. However, there was a lot left to the imagination before the official release.
We all knew Sia and Zayn would sound amazing together (no, duh), but Jemima Kirke starring in the Marc Webb directed music video also had fans pumped for the release. You may recognize Kirke from her role as Jessa on Girls; she's an amazing actress. In the music video, she plays a mysterious woman who has some connection to Zayn. With the dark lighting and fast cars, I'm telling you, this video had my heart pumping.
Zayn is definitely creating a big name for himself as a solo artist in the music world. When discussing his growth as a songwriter with VMAN magazine, he said this about his sophomore album,
I feel like my songwriting definitely developed, just because I've been doing it so much. I feel like the songs are a bit more organized, where I felt like, before, that Mind of Mine was a brainstorm. That's why I called it Mind of Mine, because it was ideas that I had that I put out. This one is more thought out. I had more time to process everything and go through it all. It's an evolution.
Needless to say, I love his new music and can't wait for more of it. Congrats on all your success, Zayn.
