Zayn Desperately Wants To Give Love One More Try on Aching ‘Better’

Zayn is a man at wits’ end on the lovestruck soul ballad “Better.” The slinky R&B ballad from the new dad dropped on Friday morning (Sept. 25) and it finds the former boy bander contemplating a love he can’t shake, but might just have to.

“Cause sometimes it’s better that way/ Gotta let it go so your heart don’t break/ ‘Cause I love you/ Yeah, baby, I love you/ Just this one time, hear what I’m tryna say/ Know you might not feel quite the same way/ But I love you/ I tell you, I love you,” he sings over a thumping bass and hi-hat groove spiced with jazzy guitar.

The song’s chorus makes the heartbreak crystal clear: “Why? Why wait to fight?/ Give it a try/ Or I’ll say goodbye while it’s right/ Can we save tears in your eyes?/ I’m making you cry/ Why wait to hate, can we save love?”

The song, co-written by Zayn, is slated for this upcoming third album, which is described in a release as his “most personal project to date. With total creative reign on his third album, Zayn is making the music he has always wanted to.” The accompanying video directed by Ryan Hope finds him waking up alone in in an empty house while some unknown figures surveil him from afar.

Malik’s sophomore solo album Icarus Falls album dropped in Dec. 2018 and he’s dropped a string of guest last year on songs by Shaed (“Trampoline”), Sabrina Claudio (“Rumors”), R3hab (“Flames“” and Zhavia Ward (“A Whole New World”). Zayn welcomed his first child, a girl, with girlfriend supermodel Gigi Hadid on Wednesday.

“Our girl joined us earth-side this weekend and she’s already changed our world. So in love,” Hadid captioned a black-and-white photo of the baby holding Zayn’s thumb.
