It has become quite unclear whether Zayn is now just aiming to be a singles artist or if he is actually giving us a taste of his second studio album. He has given us songs like ‘Let Me’ and ‘Entertainer,’ which were mediocre at best. Now, he teams up with a veteran in Timbaland for a song titled ‘Too Much.’ And honestly, it might fall in the same category as the other ones. Perhaps, this is all part of his sophomore album – and honestly it isn’t that exciting.
I’m not sure if Mind of Mine (his debut album) was good because it was the first time he was unchained creatively, or because we were all so intrigued at the fact that this was the first solo work by someone that had tragically left the biggest pop boy band in the world a year earlier. I think it will be hard for him to get to that point again. None of the singles released in the last year are nearly as good as ‘Pillowtalk’ or even ‘Like I Would’ – the latter even flopped on the charts.
But, I guess we’ll see.
Listen to ‘Too Much’ below.
