Did Zayn Malik steal music from his former group AND his ex-girlfriend? While his newest song, ‘Like I Would,’ is amazing, it sounds a lot like a several One Direction and Little Mix songs. Take a tune in to the song and discover what you think!
Just if this seemed like Zayn Malik completely put One Direction and Perrie Edwards during the past, his music can be telling us otherwise! The 23-year-old singer released another solo track called “Like I Would,” and suddenly 1D and Little Mix appear to have come back into Zayn’s life — at least his music. In fact, fans are even speculating that Zayn stole their tunes!
Unlike Zayn’s two previously released songs, “Pillowtalk” and “It’s You,” “Like I Would” is really a super dancey track through an upbeat tempo. But while “Like I Would” shows us another side of Zayn’s solo material, this new poppy side also totally has hints of Little Mix and One Direction. Even a number of the lyrics really are a mashup of Little Mix’s “Love Me Like You” and 1D’s “I Would”! Check Zayn Like I Would sheet music here.
But let’s look at this for real: Would Zayn genuinely wish to sound like either of people groups? After all, Zayn thought One Direction’s music was “never cool” as they was still from the band. Plus, he’s the individual that ended things with Perrie in August 2015, so he probably wouldn’t wish to pay homage to his ex!
Then again, the lyrics within the song definitely hint that they’re an ex-girlfriend. Perrie, perhaps? It certainly wouldn’t be described as a coincidence considering simply how much the song appears like her band! And he’s already openly admitted that “It’s You” is all about her, so why wouldn't you just add another Perrie song to his listing of solo tracks! And as for 1D, they paid tribute thus to their former bandmate into their song — and adorable video for — “History,” so maybe this became his strategy to give a shoutout back?
After enjoying the song a couple of times, though, we wouldn’t really go as far as saying that Zayn actually stole music from his ex’s group or his former band. But it certainly seems like they have resulted in a lasting impression on him — whether however like to face it or not! Either way, there’s no denying that “Like I Would” is usually a total jam!
HollywoodLifers, think Zayn stole areas of 1D and Little Mix’s songs to generate “Like I Would”? What think of his new song?
