The once One Direction band member has distances himself from the pop sounds as he embarks on a solo journey. He recently told Billboard, “I genuinely enjoyed [the band] and did whatever I could to be myself within that, but it’s just not where I sit as a musician. The other boys’ taste was generally indie rock. It’s good music, but I don’t f— with it. That was never cool where I was from”.
With the sounds of Pillowtalk, it looks as if Malik has left the bubblegum pop stuff behind and moved on to slick R&B. He told Sunday Times about the concept of the song revealing, ”Everybody has sex, and it’s something people wanna hear about. It’s part of everybody’s life, a very big part of life”.
