Zayn Malik has given fans a sneak peek of his new song ‘Flames’.
Zayn Malik is dropping his new track, ‘Flames’, on November 15 and fans can't wait.
The 26-year-old ‘Pillowtalk’ hitmaker teased a short clip with some instrumentals from the tune, just a week after saying he’s releasing new music.
The One Direction star has joined forces with producers, Jungleboi and R3HAB, for the new hit.
Jungleboi has also confirmed the release time in the UK will be midnight, so now we can all set alarms on our phones.
Fans rushed to praise the singer on social media, with one saying: “ZQUAD ARE MORE THAN READY FOR BREATHTAKING VOCALS! WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH ZAYN! X.”
R3HAB joined in the excitement, asking: “Who’s ready for Friday?”, before someone replied with: "Zayn better be in the music video we’re counting on you."
When the news about 'Flames' first dropped, R3HAB shared the record's artwork with his 2.3million followers, saying : “25,000 comments and we will release this asap.”
It only took a few hours to reach the target and he updated fans, saying: “We’re going to drop it ASAP and we’re going to drop a teaser very very soon.”
Clearly no one could contain their excitement for Zayn's comeback as fans rushed to praise the singer, with one tweeting: “KING WE MISSED YOU.”
“ZAYNIE I LOVE YOU… SOOOOOOOO MUCHHHHHH. I’m so happy I’m crying,” another added.
ZAYN THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BLESSING OUR HEARTS WITH YOUR MUSIC, WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH! X 😭❤️— Annika | lovez Z! (@ZaynForHero) November 5, 2019
One fan wrote: “NOW EVERYONE IS RELEASING MUSIC I WAS NLT READY [sic].”
However, it doesn't look like we'll be getting a proper reunion any time soon.
Liam recently told The Jonathon Ross Show he doesn’t think anything will happen for at least another two years.
The ‘Stack It Up’ singer said: “All I can say is, through album cycles and single cycles, I see everybody putting songs out at the moment, I don’t think for at least the next two years it’s going to happen.”
When asked about whether he thought Zayn would make a comeback in the reunion, he said: “When he left, it wasn’t on great terms so I don’t feel like it’s a thing.
“If he didn’t want to be here, he shouldn’t be here, which is fine. Like I say, good for him, he’s gone off and is doing his own thing and he’s doing really well so I don’t want to mess with his stuff. We did a whole stadium tour without him so I feel like it’s fine.”
Louis recently opened up about Zayn’s exit from the band, revealing he’s still pretty mad about it, but in future would be up for reuniting with the other boys.
He told the Metro: “I wasn’t really ready for the band to go on a break. As far as I an concerned, I am happy doing what I am doing. But the day that [a reunion] does happen, and everyone is ready to do it, I am ready.”
It’s safe to say we are all on standby, waiting for it to happen!
