Zayn is quickly stacking up his hip-hop chips.
Over the weekend, he appeared alongside Chris Brown and Usher on CB’s “Back to Sleep” remix, and now he’s grabbed Lil Wayne to add a verse to the remix of his own breakout solo hit, “Pillowtalk.” The original single debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 earlier this month and is currently sitting at No. 6 in its third week.
He didn’t just add Weezy, though — Zayn also penned a new verse of his own, where he continues with the between-the-sheets theme of the song: “Now I’ll fuck her 10 times cause I don’t get bored,” he sings, before Wayne adds the essential “Yeah!” ad-lib.
But it’s not just about Zayn earning his hip-hop stripes here. This is a two-way, mutually beneficially collab. Tunechi — legendary and prolific as he may be — is still engaged in a fight to release his Tha Carter V album, and hasn’t had a mainstream hit since 2014’s “Believe Me,” so being a part of the former One Direction singer’s solo coming out party should change at least the latter part of that.
