Earlier today, Zayn Malik dropped his debut solo single “Pillowtalk,” the first song off his upcoming album, “Mind of Mine.”
Just hours after it was released, the track shot to the number one spot on the iTunes charts, thanks in no small part to an accompanying steamy music video featuring Zayn and his girlfriend Gigi Hadid.
But there is one individual who is decidedly NOT a fan: Harry Styles.
Zayn’s former One Direction band mate dissed the song big time, according to HollywoodLife.
“Harry thinks it’s called ‘Pillowtalk’ because the song puts you to sleep,” an insider told the site. “He really doesn’t think that it is as good as anything that 1D has done with or without Zayn.”
Well, the man has a right to his opinion, but it kinda sounds like sour grapes to me.
Perhaps Harry is peeved that Zayn has been trash talking the band of late.
Earlier in the week, Zayn confessed that he never really wanted to be a part of 1D and just sort of did it because it was “there at the time.”
He went on to state that 1D’s music just wasn’t his “cup of tea,” and he thought the rest of the boys knew it at the time.
Maybe someone needs to tell Harry that just because Zayn’s doing well doesn’t mean 1D can’t, too.
If, of course, they are actually still together.
The band is currently on hiatus for an indefinite amount of time, and many fans are speculating that the band has in fact called it quits for good.
Looks like Zayn’s jumping ship might’ve been one of the best decisions he’s ever made.
