Banishing his boyband background in One Direction, Malik has wiped away memories of his less-than-brilliant debut album Mind Of Mine with his new single, ‘Let Me’. An audible experience of a restfulness flow and relationship-imploring issues, with a visionary story of troubling embezzlement. With action-packed acting, the fashionable falsetto vocals of Malik suggests the Bradford Boy has transitionally matured, into an LA living man in pursuit of a transformation in musical direction.
In conversation with 97.1 AMP Radio in the run up to his single’s unveiling, Zayn Malik spoke about the touchy taboo of former One Direction members, leaving behind a muddled mess of confusion regarding Malik’s relationship between Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne and particularly Harry Styles, considering the 25 year old is speaking so highly of his Irish interlink Niall Horan even after that awkward American Music Award handshake, and silently bashing the BBC headlines reporting the ‘BeFoUr’ singer to be “Working through 1D issues”. It seems ZAYN has overcome these anxiety-ridden, somewhat boyband-forgiving and confidence-building bumps in the road.
Topping the worldwide iTunes Charts, the track’s delicate electronic guitar transitions into an instrumental breakout of a leisure acoustic atmosphere, fading steadily into a re-tuning phase of light clapping and airy tapping of particular r&b beats, topped by placid lyrics that live up to the life of a devoted and lavish living relationship as ZAYN, supported by a small accompaniment of voices sing, “We’re drinking on the finest label/Dirty dancing on top of the table/Long walks on the beach in April”. All accumulate to produce waves of relaxing rhythms enriching the top end spectrum of singing by Malik, nothing unsurprising as he defined himself as the high note hitter in his 2010-2015 history, proceeding into his capital lettered alias music direction of creating chilled summer songs representative in ‘iT’s YoU’, ‘LIKE I WOULD’ and latest material ‘Let Me’.
Luxurious look outs onto the serene seas of the US and city skylines in April, flipping to the violent price paid for a lavish lifestyle with Grand Theft Auto gaming gestures from scenes directed by film and TV big wheel Jose Padilha of weaponry violence of a raven headed man on a mission to fascinate fierce female Sofia Zamora. Transcending outdated stereotypes of having to rescue a damsel in distress in a threatening situation, as the strong blond fights her own battles post epic fight turmoil to live the lush life that the ‘Let Me’ vocalists promises. A tale of two halves that pairs with Sia’s joint effort the galvanising ‘Dusk Till Dawn’ to determine a whole video project. Power, greed and vengeance alongside seduction, passion, loyalty, money, love and revenge are all fundamental themes to be continued into the next subsequent sequel.
