When you’ve earned a ton of money from years in a boy band, there’s a good chance you’re going to buy a really nice house. If you’re Zayn Malik, former One Direction member, you use that house for parties. Really, really big parties.
Malik just dropped his new video for “Still Got Time,” his collaboration with Canadian artist PartyNextDoor, and used his London home as the setting for the NSFW house party video. Directed by Calmatic, the fuzzy video has alcohol, tattoo artists, head shaving, and more than a few naked women keep the house party going all night. Following a night of debauchery and a few drug-induced hallucinations, Malik wakes up in the morning to find a new pet monkey. Is this an ode to Michael Jackson? Ross Geller? Maybe he just likes the monkey. Zayn also finds an alligator in the morning that’s gone rogue. Like, really rogue. Do they even have alligators in the UK?
Calmatic told E! News, “I was asleep in L.A. when I got a call from Luti Media and Zayn’s management at 7 a.m. They told me to hop on the next flight to London. It was my first time in London so I didn’t know what to expect. When I got there we met at his crib and he said he wanted to throw the wildest house party imaginable. So, we invited everyone we knew and let the cameras roll.”
Contrary to his name, PartyNextDoor does not appear in the party-heavy video. Maybe he was at the one next door.
“Still Got Time,” which marks the first collaboration between Malik and PartyNextDoor, is the lead single from Malik’s upcoming sophomore solo album. A title and release date have yet to be announced, but considering the success of Malik’s 2016 debt Mind Of Mine, we’re expecting big things.
As for Mississauga native PND, he’s been busy releasing remixes of Bruno Mars’ “That’s What I Like” and actually showing up for the party in the new video for “Run Up” with Nicki Minaj and Major Lazer.
