In case this is your first interaction with the Internet today, Zayn Malik of One Direction boyband fame released his first single and video since leaving the band last year. Pillowtalk dropped last night at midnight, and it’s amazing.
Pillowtalk is the first single off Zayn’s upcoming album, Mind Of Mine, which is slated to drop March 25. The song itself is slow and sultry, and tells the story of a passionate but turbulent romance: “It’s our paradise and it’s our war zone,” Malik croons.
The video stars It Girl and ““good friend” Gigi Hadid. The trippy video is filled with clips of the couple getting hot n’ heavy, tears of blood and blooming flowers.
Here are the 10 sexiest Pillowtalk GIFs for your viewing pleasure.
