Leaving One Direction may just have been the best thing ZAYN could have done for his future. A simultaneous #1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 in America and on the UK Top 40, his debut release “PILLOWTALK” quickly had the world talking and trended globally on the day of release earlier this month. The single is currently climbing the South African airplay chart with rapid speed and is sitting just outside the Top 10 most played tracks in the country as of this week. This morning, ZAYN surprised the world by announcing the pre-order of his forthcoming album ‘Mind of Mine’, which hits shelves on the 25th of March, exactly one year following his announcement that he had left the band to do his own thing.

Along with the pre-order, ZAYN has released a brand new track called “It’s You” to fans, to give us a better indication as to the sound of the new album and the general direction he is moving into. Following his performance of the track on US television two weeks ago, anticipation has been building and the studio version does not disappoint. ZAYN’s falsetto dominates the track and he reminds us just why he has always been known as one of the best of the band. No word yet whether this will be the second single but we’ll keep you updated on progress as the story continues to develop. Continue to slay us, ZAYN!
