Zayn Malik has only “One Direction” (pun intended) he is going and that is straight to the top! The man has won hearts and fans thanks to his “Pillow Talk” (another pun intended) and amazing vocals. Well Zayn is back and this time he is being rather heroic–taking on bad guys and winning the girl–in his action-packed music video for Let Me!

We have never seen Zayn do a music video like this before, let alone one that is so full of action and mayhem. Honestly, it is pretty cool.

According to a press release, the video for the track was creatively developed by Malik himself, working closely with director and producer Jose Padilha (“Narcos,” “Robocop”) and co-starring with actor Steven Bauer (“Scarface,” “Breaking Bad”). The clip is the official sequel to “Dusk Til Dawn,” which won ‘Best Video’ at the 2017 MTV VMAs.

In it, we see Malik consorting with shady-looking underworld figures in an unspecified nefarious activity involving aggressively exchanged briefcases, opulent Miami hotels and nightclubs, suits, yachts, a fight and and of course a beautiful young woman, with whom Malik sails off in a speedboat at the end as the song ends and a “To be continued” rolls across the screen.

The song was produced Malik with Mykl, the British production duo with whom he worked on “Pillowtalk.” ) the track is an upbeat, pop track written and recorded in Jimi Hendrix’s’ legendary Electric Lady Studios in New York City.

“Dusk Til Dawn,” a collaboration with Sia, was released last September, less than 18 months after the March 2016 release of Malik’s debut, “Mind of Mine.” The release says his forthcoming second album is “a culmination of his experiences and inspirations from the past two years since the release of his critically acclaimed debut,” which topped the albums charts in both the U.S. and UK.

We are definitely big fans of Zayn Malik at HeyMikeyATL and cannot wait for his forthcoming new sophomore album. What do you guys think of his music video for Let Me? Sound off below!

Murda Beatz, Blaqnmild, Corey Litwin, and Noah “40” Shebib produced the track. It samples Lauryn Hill’s Miseducation classic “Ex-Factor” and was previously previewed by her son on social media.

The hypnotic cut also acts as an empowerment anthem full of affirmations. “That’s a real one in your reflection,” he raps. “Without a follow, without a mention / You rarely pipin’ up on these ni**as / You gotta be nice for what to these ni**as?”

To go along with the new song, Drake also unleashed its star-studded video. Directed by Karena Evans, the stunning clip features striking portraits of impressive stars, including Tiffany Haddish, Rashida Jones, Issa Rae, Tracee Ellis Ross, Yara Shahidi, Zoe Saldana, and many more.

We have to say we are here for this music video! Drake is really stepping out of the box with his music videos nowadays, as you recall in God’s Plan he gave out nearly $900K to people in need. Keep doing what you are doing Drake and we just might find ourselves “Drake-ing” this summer!
