Zayn Malik is officially taking over the music scene. The former One Direction member has been releasing song after song leading up to his debut solo album Mind Of Mine. This morning the singer released his latest song BeFour which is presumably about this new chapter in his career.
“Now, I’m gonna stay in my zone / I’m tired of picking that bone / And I can’t be bothered to fight it no more, no,” Zayn sings.
This slower jam falls in line with Zayn’s previously released tracks which get him in touch with his R&B side. So we’ve decided to rank the four songs he’s released so far in order of our favourites.
Now don’t get us wrong, this song isn’t so bad, it just doesn’t compare to Zayn’s other songs released off the album so far. The tone is kind of tired and it doesn’t get us going quite like his other singles. Sorry Zayn, but this one may not blow up quite like you’re expecting it to.

3. It’s You
This single is only his second song to have an accompanying music video, but it’s so close to the lovesick lyrics of his single Pillowtalk, we wish there was more variety. This song is great to listen to if you’re in a wallowing kind of mood, but it’s definitely not something to turn up to.
2. Like I Would
Like I Would is definitely our new dance party anthem! Zayn finally changed up his sound with this upbeat and grooving song. We hope there will be more hits like this on the upcoming album!
This was the first single Zayn released off Mind Of Mine, and it’s still on repeat on all our playlists. This song is the right mix of soul and upbeat dance tunes. And having Zayn’s girlfriend Gigi Hadid in the music video definitely helps sell the song.
Mind Of Mine is due to be released on March 25, which is coincidentally exactly one year after Zayn left 1D.
