Zayn Malik has shared new song ‘Befour’, from debut solo album ‘Mind Of Mine’.
Malik’s album is due for release on March 25 and inlcudes the single ‘Pillowtalk’, which went to Number One in the UK and US earlier this year.
Lyrics on ‘Befour’ include the lines “I’m tired of picking that bone,” and “Say what you wanna say, what you want / Shame is you won’t say that to my face.”
Malik quit One Direction, who are currently on an extended hiatus, in March 2015 and is now embarking on a solo career. Since his departure he has hinted at tension between himself and other members of the band, saying only Liam Payne has kept in touch with him.
In addition to the new song, Malik will perform on Jimmy Fallon’s The Tonight Show on March 24.
Earlier this month Malik announced details of his debut solo album, including a unique approach to using caps lock. Titles on the album include ‘lUcOzAdE’, ‘fOoL fOr YoU’ and ‘rEaR vIeW’. US R&B singer Kehlani appears on the track ‘wRoNg’.
‘Pillowtak’ charted higher than any other song One Direction ever released in the US. The closest One Direction came to scoring a chart-topping Billboard Hot 100 single was with ‘Best Song Ever’, which reached Number Two in 2013.
A Lil Wayne remix of ‘Pillowtalk’ appeared online last month.
