LISTEN: Zayn Releases New Song “Like I Would”

by

He’s baaaack. Just a few days after revealing the track listings for Mind of Mine, Zayn has released a new song, “Like I Would.” There is speculation that this song alludes to One Direction’s “I Would,” and honestly, I believe it; it was the first association I made when I found out that Zayn released this song. Thematically, the two songs are similar. “Like I Would” might be a reference to his ex-band, and it might not be, but either way, this song is a breath of fresh air after hearing the snoozefest that was “It’s You.” This new song is much more upbeat, faster-paced than “Pillowtalk,” with vibes that are reminiscent of Drake’s “Hotline Bling” and the Weeknd’s “Can’t Feel My Face.” Though “Pillowtalk” is still number one in my heart, “Like I Would” comes in at a close second.
