The 23-year-old singer chatted with Westwood One’s Zach Sang and the Gang show about Gigi’s appearance in the “Pillowtalk” music video. Host Jillian Gutowitz asked, “Was it cool to have your girlfriend in the video?”
“Yeah, that was cool,” he responded. “That was something different — and yeah, we enjoyed it. It was fun. We had a lot of fun on set.”
Jillian followed up with, “No one easier to make out with than your own girlfriend, right?”
Zayn replied with a laugh, “Exactly. I like what you’ve done there.”

Zayn Malik’s Interview on the ‘Zach Sang and the Gang’ Show
The 23-year-old singer opened up about his debut solo single “Pillowtalk,” leaving One Direction, and more. Check it:
On releasing his solo music: “Yeah, exciting times! I’ve been working on it for a long time now so even starting everything is really exciting this week.”
On deciding to leave the group: “I feel good! I feel like that’s the key thing in life, you know regardless of whatever it is that you do. You have to always remain true to yourself and do whatever makes you happy because at the end of the day, you answer to yourself so it’s a good place to be in. I’m happy about the decision I made.”
On his first single: “It is about sex, there is obviously sex in a relationship. It’s not the whole incentive of the song though, the actual intent of the song is even though you have great times in a relationship, you have really bad times as well but that’s what makes it worth while because you learn things and you go through experiences that bring you closer together. That’s the actual intent of the song. Obviously you have sex and sometimes you fight during the relationship, so I did mention that in the song but yeah, it’s not solely about sex.”
During his interview, the 23-year-old singer opened up about liking the photo of Louis Tomlinson and his newborn son, Freddie.
“His kid is cute as f*** so obviously I favourited it,” Zayn shared. “We’re not talking on friend terms obviously, so that’s as far as I can go, by favouriting his picture.”
Zayn added about joining One Direction all those years ago, “I don’t think I would have done anything different. I was talking about it to a mate of mine from home the other day, and I was saying to him I wouldn’t have changed anything. Every wrong decision I made, every right decision got me here,” he added. “So I guess I’d just say trust your instincts and don’t take yourself too seriously, because life’s gonna be alright.”
Zayn‘s debut album will drop on March 25th — the same date he left 1D last year.
