Inzane: One Direction’s Zayn Releases FIFTH Single from Still-Unfinished Album 2 Weeks After Last One Flopped


What the heck is going on?

Just two weeks after One Direction’s Zayn Malik flopped with “Sour Diesel,” he’s back with a FIFTH single from his still-unfinished album.

The new single is called “Too Much.” But is it too much, too little, too late? “Too Much” features Timbaland in a high Justin Timberlake fashion. The short animated clip posted to social media has Zayn doing Michael Jackson-like dancing. It’s the complete opposite of “Sour Diesel.” Hard to imagine all these songs are going to exist on one album.

I do get the feelingĀ  that Zayn, adrift, is just listening to anyone who speaks to him. There’s no guidance here, just an attitude of let’s throw everything against the wall and see what sticks. I feel bad for him. The whole clever machine behind “Pillowtalk” is gone.
