“Let Me” is the latest single from Malik’s upcoming second album. He’s so far previewed the release with songs like “Still Got Time” and “Dusk Till Dawn.” The mid-tempo track reunites Zayn with MYKL, the production duo behind his breakthrough hit “Pillowtalk.” It’s an ’80s-inspired affair with dreamy synths and guitar backing Malik doing his best to woo the woman of his eye. “Sweet baby, our sex has meaning / Know this time you’ll stay ‘til the morning,” he sings. Zayn’s free-flying falsetto makes the affectionate verses all the more beautiful. “Let Me” allows Malik to shine on the loveliest of love songs.
The music video for “Let Me” starts from where last year’s “Dusk Till Dawn” left off. Malik continues to navigate seedy scenes with that mysterious briefcase and a new love interest. When push comes to shove, both Zayn and his girl end up holding their own. They cruise off into the sunset as the cinematic clip teases more adventures to come.
“Let Me” is now available on iTunes and Apple Music. No word yet on when to expect Malik’s upcoming album, dubbed #Z2 by his fans.
