Zayn Malik’s debut album “Mind of mine” is finally arrived! Its the first collection of material since Zayn left One Direction last year.
After the departure, the singer revealed it was the lack of authenticity he felt singing One Direction’s music that became the main factor in him leaving. “It was about denying the authenticity of who I was, and what I enjoyed about music, and why I got into it. That was always there. It was one of the things that wasn’t going to go away, so I had to go away,” he explained. “With the music that I’m doing now, I get to express myself, and that creative tension is gone.”
“Mind of Mine” was preceded by the release of lead single “Pillowtalk”, which made it to top spot in a number of the international charts.
The track was followed by the release of “It’s you,” the club-ready “Like I would,” and “Befour.”
