Ladies, Zayn Malik is here, and he just sang a Hindi song!

Global singing sensation Zayn Malik has made his debut as a Bollywood singer, recording a full-length song in Hindi. The former member of the popular boy band, One Direction, while speaking to a popular Indian magazine, said this was one of the first songs he has sung in Hindi, and that he was looking forward to the response it will get.

For those who are not too familiar with Zayn, here’s a bit of background about him.

Zayn Javadd Malik is a Briton of Pakistani descent, having been born and raised in Bradford, West Yorkshire. His father, Yaser Malik, is British Pakistani, and his mother, Tricia Brannan Malik, is English, and of part Irish descent.

The 25-year-old auditioned as a solo artist for the British music competition, The X Factor, in 2010. After being eliminated as a solo performer, he was brought back into the competition, along with four other contestants, to form the boy band, One Direction. Zayn split from the group in March 2015 and signed a solo recording contract with RCA Records.

His debut studio album was Mind of Mine (2016), and its lead single, Pillowtalk, became a huge hit. With this, Zayn became the first British male artist to debut at number one in both the UK and US with a debut single and a debut album.
