Suprise! Zayn love gets taken hostage in new single ‘Let Me’

It’s about to go down

After months of waiting for something from Zayn, there’s finally a new single from the former One Direction member. 

“Let Me” is the sequel song to “Dusk Till Dawn,” another single that Zayn released in September of last year with Sia. Unlike “Dusk Till Dawn,” “Let Me” is more of what came from Zayn’s first album “Mind of Mine. It’s less of a production and more of just a chill and sensual R&B song.

Zayn’s vocals on “Let Me” are just overall better than what was featured on “Dusk Till Dawn.” “Dusk Till Dawn” isn’t a bad song, it’s just a lot of Sia. On this song, Zayn’s vocals feel more like him and help to carry the overall feeling to the song. Zayn on less production is the best. That is when he sounds the best and can really show off what he is bringing to the table. 

The video follows Zayn under control of a Mafia leader. As the video follows Zayn doing tasks for the mafia, the love between Zayn and the leader’s girlfriend starts to become more featured due to sexual tension. The video is extremely well produced. The video tells a captivating story that keeps you invested. You don’t need to have seen the video for “Dusk Till Dawn” to enjoy or understand what is going on in the story. The music video ending with “To Be Continued” on the screen. It appears that Zayn is looking to continue to have the music video linked together to tell a story. If that is the case, then Zayn’s album would likely be very similar to that.

No album release date has been said by Zayn. It’s time to start playing the waiting game for more music from Zayn.

Video Review: ZAYN channels Miley in ‘Still Got Time’ video

stillgottime-sm

It’s time to party because Zayn decided to release a new music video for this song “Still Got Time.” And boy, does it remind me of a party that I’ve seen before. It seemed like it’s a party that can’t stop and it won’t stop. But it’s Zayn’s party, he can do what he wants. Do you get the reference yet?

“Still Got Time” is a very simple video. It’s pretty much Zayn throwing one big party and it’s him just walking the party. In case you couldn’t guess, by opening references, the music video comes across like Zayn is at the party Miley Cyrus threw in “We Can’t Stop.” There’s a lot of smoking, drinking, and just people having a good time. It’s not as weird as the stuff Miley did at her party. In case you don’t remember what Miley’s party was like, here’s a link the video. it was a great time if you were stoned out of your mind.

The video itself is a very simple one and it surprising works for the video. It’s really fits the songs main theme of which don’t rush things and just enjoy it. Zayn is just enjoying the party and not rushing into anything. They is sexy people around him and he’s just cruising the party. I also think there is hidden easter eggs nods to his friends like the monkey on this shoulder. That could be a nod to Justin Bieber who once had a monkey before Germany confiscated it and he just gave up on it. It’s probably that same monkey. Zayn saved Justin Bieber’s monkey.

The only thing wrong with the video is that it’s too simple. While it works, it leaves you wanting to know more. Like, what was the point of the party? But I’m going to guess that there wasn’t really a point to the party, Zayn just wanted to have some good old fun.

Overall, it’s a very good simple music video that works with the theme of the song well. The only problem with it is that it’s too simple.

Single Review: ZAYN say you ‘Still Got Time’

stillgottime-sm

Everyone favorite former One Directioner, ZAYN, has released the first new single off his untitled sophomore album. “Still Got time” is a collab with rapper PartyNextDoor…do not know who he is but hey, he must be good if ZAYN is performing with him.

“Still Got Time” is an extremely simple song and it works so well for. When I first heard the song I wasn’t a fan of it. It just didn’t click. But after listening to it for a while, it began to start click and I began to become a fan of the song. It’s nothing like his first album “Mind of Mine.” The beat of the song is one of those beat that you can dance to without having to throw your back out.

The lyrics talk about ZAYN telling a girl to not to rush into a relationship and just to take things slow. For anyone else to say that it would scream “I’m just not that into you” and send that poor girl into a tub of Ice Cream. But the lyrics work and tell a story for ZAYN that doesn’t make it sound like a break-up song.

PartyNextDoor doesn’t really add anything to the song. He ends up “singing” the second verse of the song. Lately, when it comes to having rappers featured on songs it’s been either hit or miss. More so, just misses. “Still Got Time” is definitely in the miss category. I would rather have ZAYN singing the verse than him. It just doesn’t make the song feel like it’s earth shattering good.

ZAYN is also channeling his inner Drake with the song with the styling of the vocals. While it works for him, it’s nothing earth-shattering. It fits the style of the song and luckily for him, Drake doesn’t have anything out at the moment. If Drake had a single out, then it wouldn’t have worked for him. The problem with music day is that artists end up sounding the same because of similar tendencies they have, which ends up getting them compared to each other. When this happens, it’s a blessing and a curse. A blessing because it opens more new people to that artist because it sounds similar to their favorite. A curse because it has the potential to get that song no airplay because people will be requesting “that new song from Drake.” It should work for ZAYN – this time. I don’t think he meant to come across as Drake like due to his want to “do this own thing.”

Overall, the song is a great jam that will become a summer hit. It takes awhile for the song to click and be a jam, but it’s still a jam. PartyNextDoor doesn’t add to the song and it would be better if ZAYN was just solo on it.

Here’s the song for you ears to love:

songlover-sm

Valentine’s day is tomorrow. It’s the one time a year that there will be an increase sales in flowers, wine/alcohol, and condoms. Just like there will be an increase in infant clothing in nine months. In order to set the mood, you need the perfect music.

Because of all the baby making that will or won’t be,happening, tomorrow. I figured that I would be you personal DJ. This will give you more time to plan. This Top 5ive will be unlike other Top 5ive. It’s going to be set up to follow you from the start of your date and the whole way up to the end 😉  I also can’t promise that this will be just 5 song

I Wanna Be With You by Mandy Moore

This is for you are really excited for your romantic outing. You literally can’t think of anything else. Literally all your co-workers want to kill you because you aren’t getting your work done and you are just making them work more.

Love Me Like You Do by Ellie Goulding

It’s time to actually get ready for your date. At this point, you are probably very nervous and can’t wait to finally see your love again. You’ve been texting all day and it’s almost. This song is to help you get those butterflies the whole way up until you meet you date.

A Thousand Years by Christina Perri

It’s time for your date. It’s literally the most romantic thing ever and you are speechless. You were speechless from the time you locked eyes on them.  Then time will stand still as you go on your date. It’s like heaven. Not real heaven because that will be sad and ruin the date.

Crazy in Love by Beyoncé

Towards the end of your date, you are going to want to jump each others bones. Because of this, I give you the 50 Shades of Grey version of “Crazy in Love.” The building up towards the end of the song is perfect to the tension you are feeling.

Breathe On Me by Britney Spears

Literally, the sexiest song that Britney has put out. This is for the part of the night where the amount of love you have can’t control anymore. You just need to go back to one of your places and rip  each others clothes off.

S&M by Rihanna

You probably have seen the new 50 Shades movie at some point in the last week. If you have, then you’re welcome for this song. Honestly, it’s a travesty that they haven’t put this on either one of the soundtracks.

PILLOWTALK by Zayn

……this is for after…..the cuddling and pillow talk. The song title pretty much makes this one self-explanatory.

Where You Are by Jessica Simpson & Nick Lachey

It’s almost time to part ways and you just don’t want to. You just want to be with them forever. But you have to work in the morning, and you both feel guilty if you were to take a “sick day.”

My Heart Will Go On by Celine Dion

It’s time you to part ways like the Titanic (too soon?). You will have only the memories of your night and you will cherish them forever. It will be like Rose saying goodbye to Jack but less tragic because neither one of you died. Best. Valentine’s Day. Ever.
