Did Zayn Malik steal music from his former group AND his ex-girlfriend? While his newest song, ‘Like I Would,’ is amazing, it sounds a great deal like a number of One Direction and Little Mix songs. Take a tune in to the song and discover what you think!
Just in the event it seemed like Zayn Malik completely put One Direction and Perrie Edwards during the past, his music can be telling us otherwise! The 23-year-old singer released another solo track called “Like I Would,” and suddenly 1D and Little Mix have come back into Zayn’s life — or perhaps his music. In fact, fans are even speculating that Zayn stole their tunes!
Unlike Zayn’s two previously released songs, “Pillowtalk” and “It’s You,” “Like I Would” can be a super dancey track by having an upbeat tempo. But while “Like I Would” shows us another side of Zayn’s solo material, this new poppy side also totally has hints of Little Mix and One Direction. Even a few of the lyrics certainly are a mashup of Little Mix’s “Love Me Like You” and 1D’s “I Would”! Check Zayn Like I Would sheet music here.
But let’s think this through for real: Would Zayn really need to sound like either of the groups? After all, Zayn thought One Direction’s music was “never cool” when he was still inside the band. Plus, he’s the one that ended things with Perrie in August 2015, so he probably wouldn’t desire to pay homage to his ex!
Then again, the lyrics about the song definitely hint that they’re a good ex-girlfriend. Perrie, perhaps? It certainly wouldn’t be considered a coincidence considering just how much the song looks like her band! And he’s already openly admitted that “It’s You” is approximately her, so why don’t you just add another Perrie song to his report on solo tracks! And as for 1D, they paid tribute on their former bandmate within their song — and adorable video for — “History,” so maybe i thought this was his solution to give a shoutout back?
After paying attention to the song more than once, though, we wouldn’t really go as long as saying that Zayn actually stole music from his ex’s group or his former band. But it certainly feels like they have resulted in a lasting impression on him — whether he’d like to will or not! Either way, there’s no denying that “Like I Would” can be a total jam!
HollywoodLifers, do you consider Zayn stole aspects of 1D and Little Mix’s songs to produce “Like I Would”? What you think of his new song?
