Zayn Malik reveals new song Like I Would and fans troll him over One Direction similarities
By teasing another new song, Zayn Malik has continued his solo career . Howeve some fans have suggested it's a backwards set.
On Thursday the former One Direction star unveiled Like I Would –a song, which is taken from his upcoming debut album Mind of Mine. As you can imagine it quickly caused fire.
There were many fans were delighted to hear a snippet of new music from the ex boy band singer, but there were other who didn’t appreciate it that much . Although the song features a catchy R&B-electro beat and soulful vocals as they wait for the finished LP, it isn’t something new for the fans.
There were some who pointed out in Instagram and Twitter certain similarities between the tune, and 1D's poppy hit I Would, which was included on their Take Me Home record in 2012.
One fan even wrote: "Bruh this song already exists its called I Would by One Direction"
Another cheekily asked: "Why does it have to be so similar to one direction's I would (sic)"
Also another similarity came from the lyrics of the song, in which Zayn sings: "He won't love you like I would’ while the 1D song features the boys sing the line: "Would he love you like I would.
We can definitely say that from musical point of view, the solo star's new, more mature direction is clear, yet fans have been breaking down the similarities between the tunes.
"This is literally just a cooler version of I would," commented a fan on Instagram.
