Former One Directioner Zayn Malik is heartbroken in the music video for his new track "Entertainer" which made its world premiere on Wednesday, May 23.
The new single follows previous releases "Dusk Till Dawn" featuring Sia and "Let Me." All tracks are included in his upcoming, still-untitled album.
Zayn Malik Is One Jealous Boyfriend
In the music video, Malik goes into a strip club to watch his girlfriend, dance onstage and entertain other guys.
"Guess you didn't know that you were my favorite entertainer/ I watch you, and laugh with, and f*** with you/ Don't you take me for a fool/ In this game, I own the rules," he sings in the pre-chorus. "You were my favorite entertainer/ I watch you, I laugh with, with fake it too/ Don't you take me for a fool/ I'ma show you a thing or two."
The new release seems to be a continuation of his previous track, "Let Me." The same woman who sees the singer playing the role of an action movie star stars in the music video.
'Mind of Mine' Follow-Up
Malik debuted the track on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 where he also talked about his still-untitled album. The singer/songwriter promised fans that his new project would sound a little different from his previous releases.
"It's going to be different than anything anyone has done before ... It's going to be interesting to see how the audience reacts to this kind of release," he stated. "I wanted to try something different. I think it's all going to make sense in the end when the album finally drops."
In addition, the English artist revealed that he is also prepping for a couple of live appearances. He told Lowe that he is putting together a show and rehearsing to make sure that everything is in place.
Before all that, however, he needs to have a "real body of music" that will surprise viewers and leave them all gasping.
Malik confirmed in March that he finished writing and recording his next album. On a post on Instagram, he responded to a fan who asked him about the status of his ongoing project.
"Albums been done," he assured. "Just working on my videos ladies calm it, calm it."
Details about the anticipated follow-up to Mind of Mine are scarce; the young star said that he wants to keep the record as mysterious as possible. Malik did not disclose his album's release date as of yet.
