Zayn Malik left his fans trembling over the weekend after he shared an eight-second video clip on his official Instagram doing what he does best – yes singing. The ‘Pillow Talk’ hitmaker made the One Direction fans nostalgic as he crooned to the band’s 2013 hit single ‘You & I’.
The short clip quickly broke the Internet as it managed to garner more than two million views in less than two hours. The loyal fans of the 29-year-old crooner thronged to Twitter as they could not believe Zayn Malik sang his rendition of a One Direction song. Many on the Internet shared their disbelief while a few dragged Liam Payne into the scene over his recent controversial remarks.

Zayn Malik’s eight-second viral clip showed the singer holding a recording mic as he maneuvers through the room filled with his awards and accolades. The handsome hunk is seen wearing his merch while rocking a hair band. The former One Direction member sings a high note- something for which he is known for sending his fans into a tizzy. Though we all know a One Direction reunion is a distant dream Zayn singing to one of his old songs surely made it memorable for the Directioners.
The singer was recently dragged by his former bandmate Liam Payne when he sat for an interview with Logan Paul on the latter’s podcast. Liam while commenting on Zayn Malik asserted, “Listen, I don’t agree with any of his actions. I can’t commend some of the things that he’s done. I can’t be on his side for that. What I can say is I understand and your only hope is that at some point in their life, the person at the other end of the phone wants to receive the help that you’re willing to give them.” Liam also spoke of an alleged backstage altercation.”There was one moment where there was an argument backstage and one member, in particular, threw me up a wall. So, I said to him, ‘If you don’t remove those hands, there’s a high probability that you’ll never use them again,'” he revealed.
‘This eight-second video made more impact than Liam Payne’s whole career’
