ZAYN named his album ‘Nobody Is Listening’ but we haven’t stopped listening to his song ‘Connexion’ since 12 AM. It’s the third week of January and it feels right to start the week with another ZAYN song as the Song for the Day (see ‘Vibez’).
The RnB energy in this ballad is over the top and we are here for it. There is something very nostalgic in the song. It feels like we’ve heard it a million times before from Ne-Yo to Usher to even Justin Timberlake. And yet, the track is the freshest, exuding the future of RnB, the future of music.
ZAYN is really in his element with this track. His vocals alone saved 2021 already. Those vocals? EVERYTHING! Only ZAYN could sing about sex and really create the ambience, you know what we mean? Again, his voice is just for this type of music. There is just no way that voice could be more sexy. Especially when he started to sing in his high registers (falsetto) and the post-chorus arrangement—we’re done! Come thru, ZAYN. COME THRU.
Can we talk about the lyrics? Because damn… ZAYN can write about the sexiest thing in the world and slay it. And in this track, it is not your typical in-the-bed song but it actually has those elements that can make a person contemplate their relationships.
Another masterpiece from this king. We couldn’t be more grateful, honestly. We can already see this song topping the charts but with RCA supervising its rollout, we’re not entirely sure about the outcome. Although, our hopes are high. This song deserves the world.
I don’t wanna miss out on another love
So I’m gonna dive right in
Go head first into the unknown (Unknown)
