Ever since announcing his solo career last year, Zayn Malik's been adamant about showing us the "real" him. Through several shockingly candid interviews, risqué photo shoots, and questionable makeovers, it soon became clear that he was determined to shed the boy band-friendly exterior we'd come to know him by during his tenure with 1D, and instead prove that he's capital-G Grown now.
And so, when his debut solo album Mind of Mine arrived on Friday, Zayn put his money where his mouth was and gave fans a collection of new music that's unabashedly libidinous. It makes sense -- after all, One Direction were never really able to explicitly sing about sex, even when it was something that was surely important in their personal lives. Z probably had a lot of pent-up feelings he'd been dying to sing about... and dammit, he seized that opportunity with fervor.
To prove it, here are the most ~scandalous~ lyrics from Mind of Mine that would never, EVER be found in a One Direction song (accompanied by GIFs of Zayn to quench your thirst):
"I just wanna watch you when you take it off"Tumblr
Take off all your clothes and watch you take them off"
"It's kinda hard to walk rightTumblr
/ When you're walking on my left
/ With your high heels on
/ And your sexy ass dress"
- "She Don't Love Me"
"Right now I can't see straight/Tumblr
Intoxicated it's true"
"When I'm with you/
I'm buzzing and I feel laced"
"Yeah, reckless behavior/Tumblr
A place that is so pure, so dirty and raw"
In the bed all day, bed all day, bed all day/ Fucking and fighting on"

our inner secrets"

"Four letters are never the question/ She likes when I’m messy/ And I like when she’s undressing"
"She puts her mouth round the cigarette/Tumblr
I put it out cause she likes that"

"Drunk all summer/ Drunk all summer/Tumblr
We've been drunk all summer"
Drinking and flowing and rolling

That's why I fuck around"

And I can't leave it
