The debut solo release from former One Direction-er Zayn Malik, “PILLOWTALK” gets “dirty and raw” about sex—Malik explained to The Sunday Times:

Everybody has sex, and it’s something people want to hear about. It’s part of everybody’s life, a very BIG part of life! And you don’t want to sweep it under the carpet. It has to be talked about.

You are watching: The place to lose your fears

Malik’s lyrics focus on both the spiritual and physical elements of sex: the pleasure and the pain, the purity and rawness, “our paradise and our war zone.”

Going solo frees Malik from the restraints of a made-on-TV ensemble like One Direction:

I’m enjoying what I’m doing. I’m not censoring myself anymore, so I’m not tired. I love it.

“PILLOWTALK” premiered on January 29, 2016, the day after an interview with Beats 1’s Zane Lowe during which he previewed the song and other tracks on his debut solo album Mind Of Mine. It later debuted at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

In his book “ZAYN”, the singer wrote :

All the hard work that went into the creation of Pillowtalk was worthwhile because, as soon as it was finished, I intuitively felt I was on the right path. It was a sick cut, nailing the exact sound I wanted to capture in my music. I was also able to sing about a subject that I hadn’t really able to go near while I was in One Direction : sex.

<…> Pillowtalk isn’t just about sex : it’s more layered than that. It’s about the ups and downs of relationships. Good times and bad times. We’re all tested in relationships – with our families, friends, lovers, whoever – and I like to think that, as I let go of some the not so loving sides of myself, I encourage those I’m in relationships with to do the same.
