Top 5 Best Zayn Malik Songs

Zayn Malik rose to fame in 2010 after being rejected as a solo artist from the X-Factor UK but was instead put in a group—One Direction. The boyband became a household name throughout the world, with millions of fans rushing out to buy fandom merch as soon as it was released.

In 2015, however, Zayn Malik announced his decision to quit One Direction, which crushed thousands.

We were devastated, too.

There were many rumors about internal conflicts with the other members, issues with the management, and an emotional storm within Zayn himself. But everyone came forward to set the record straight that the decision was mutually respected, and none of the boys bore ill feelings towards one another.

Since then, Zayn Malik has released three studio albums and become a force to be reckoned with in the music industry.

We're featuring the top five songs that Zayn Malik's put out for us to enjoy in his melodious voice:

1. Pillowtalk

The first single Zayn Malik released after he departed from One Direction—this song was an instant hit.


It showcased Zayn's growth as a person and as a singer, from his days in a pop boyband to someone establishing themselves in the R&B scene. Pillowtalk crossed 1 billion views on Youtube and reigned on the Billboard Hot 100 chart as number one for a while.

2. Dusk Till Dawn

Featuring the one and only Sia, this song is also featured in the 2017 movie, "The Mountain Between Us," starring Oscar-winner Kate Winslet and Idris Alba. This song was Zayn Malik's first song to surpass the 1 billion view mark of its official Youtube music video.

3. I Don't Wanna Live Forever

This song surprised every single person on planet Earth! It features Zayn Malik, and Taylor Swift, as they move through a hotel trying to find one another after turmoil.


This song was made for the second "Fifty Shades of Grey" movie soundtrack and was a massive success.

4. Better

Better features on Zayn's third studio album, "Nobody is Listening." Zayn's vocal range wonderfully takes the pleading of a person trying to win their partner back and asking them to give their relationship a chance.

5. Who

Zayn wrote this song for the 2016 movie "Ghostbusters," which featured an all-female lead cast and one nerdy Chris Hemsworth!

This song is more upbeat than Zayn's usual type, but it fits in with the funny nature of the movie.
