Zayn Malik finds himself caught in the throes of desire on his new song “Too Much.”
The song boasts a quintessential Timbaland beat, with gauzy synths around a thumping drum track, creating an atmosphere that’s sensual and futuristic. Timbo lends a vocal hook as well. His low, mechanized chant complements Zayn’s limber vocals that swing into a delicate falsetto.
“Too Much” will appear on Zayn’s forthcoming second album, which will be released via RCA Records. A release date and title have yet to be announced. Zayn’s debut album, Mind of Mine, arrived in 2016.
Over the past year, Zayn has released a steady stream of singles including “Dusk Till Dawn,” a collaboration with Sia, “Let Me,” “Entertainer” and “Sour Diesel.” In July, he shared a cover of Elvis Presley’s classic, “Can’t Help Falling in Love.”
