Zayn Malik continues to deliver new music off his forthcoming solo album, with the release of “It’s You” marking the second track to debut off Mind of Mine, due out March 25. The former One Direction member performed the dramatic cut on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Kimmel last week, and made “It’s You” available on Apple Music after premiering it on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 Radio Show Thursday.
Malik also shared Mind of Mine‘s cover art during his Kimmel appearance (his first ever television engagement sans 1D), which received criticism for its likeness to Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter III album cover. The 23-year-old singer defended his artistic choice on Twitter, saying he’s not trying to be a rapper and asked fans not to “discriminate what you don’t understand.”
