   Zayn Malik’s first solo album “The Mind of Me” comes out March 25th including his popular song Pillowtalk. Due to this being Zayn’s very first solo album, many people are looking forward to buying it on Itunes. Zayn has been doing many cover songs and plans to put them on the album for everyone’s ears to listen to. He wants his music to be nothing like 1 Direction and wants people to know him just from his own music.

    “There was never any room for me to experiment creatively in the band. If I would sing a hook or a verse slightly R&B, or slightly myself, it would always be recorded 50 times until there was a straight version that was pop, so they could use that version. Whenever I would suggest something, it was like it didn’t fit us. There was just a general conception that the management already had of what they want for the band, and I just wasn’t convinced with what we were selling. I wasn’t 100 percent behind the music. It wasn’t me. It was music that was already given to us, and we were told this is what is going to sell to these people. As much as we were the biggest, most famous boy band in the world, it felt weird. We were told to be happy about something that we weren’t happy about.” said Zayn to a reporter.

    So, has this pop star made the music he promised to everyone that it would be much different from past music? You can decide when you listen to “The Mind of Me.”

   These albums are good examples of new popular albums that is popular on ITunes or is being waited for! You never know when you want to listen to albums, that you may find a new favorite song, and a new favorite artist.
