Zayn Malik has performed live for the first time since going solo, as he debuted a new song on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night.
It was his first live performance since leaving One Direction and it was aaaall kinds of emotional. Largely because the new track, It’s You, is said to have all sorts of relevance to his relationship with Little Mix’s Perrie Edwards.
Zayn told Zane Lowe previously that: “just felt like I needed to put myself out there on that just because it was a form of therapy for me and it did help get me through some s**t.”
It’s official then, Zayn Malik is smashing this solo career business. His debut single Pillowtalk reached number one in 68 countries, including achieving the US number one which One Direction hadn’t yet managed.
Jimmy Fallon also assisted Zayn in debuting his upcoming album cover…
