“STATUS Magazine” Interview

They say that all the world’s a stage, but this multi-talented artist isn’t just a mere player with one liners to give. Beyond the lights, fan girls and rounds of applause is seizing the moment, and that’s what made musician ZAYN MALIK dominate the scene. From crooning pillow talks with a dark gaze that ain’t just there to sit pretty, he looks to a brighter future ahead and moves the only direction he knows – forward. “If you feel like there’s something in your life that’s unfulfilled, just go for it. Life’s too short,” he shares, and that’s exactly what he continues to do.

Wandering across the spectrum of dark pop sensibilities, Zayn Malik drives from dusk till dawn with a determination that never seems to run out of fuel. Gassed up with emotional power and a moody, piano-driven snippets of his love notes, he continues to create tracks that reach people beyond Billboard’s top list. “My music is constantly evolving – at present I wanna make sure my sound is unique to me. It’s a constant journey,” he continues, “I use music as an outlet to express myself and my emotions, so I suppose a side I speak about less comes across. Equally, I love making music that’s fun and feel good.” Caught under surveillance, the world continues to anticipate the ghost of his next beat, but he learned to tune out the background noise and focus on his own voice, and it says, “I make music that I want to listen to.”

From the grunge backstages of his concerts to coming clean for the glossy pages of fashion magazines, Zayn doesn’t like to stay rooted as he sees opportunity in different highways. #OOTD may be dead, but the musician is known to put the muse in music, and he wears his passion on his sleeve no matter what time of day. “I always want to discover cutting-edge trends fashion but I try and remember classic styles and cuts – I’m inspired by fashion from all ages.” Speaking of cutting-edge trends, take a cold swig on this news: Zayn Malik is back with PENSHOPPE to keep things cool with their new S/S 2018 collection, and it’s bringing the heat down.

From designing to creating music, have you ever thought of trying your hand in acting?

Z: Definitely, film is a huge passion of mine and I would like to explore it more in the future.

Dusk Till Dawn with Sia already felt like watching a short film. What are the kind of films that you would like to be a part of?

Z: I’m a massive fan of the classics, I love the Marvel series and I love Bollywood.

Your collaboration with Sia was definitely a surprise in terms of sound direction – how do you manage to meet other artists half-way when creating music together?

Z: Sia was awesome to work with – I love to collaborate. My material can only benefit from different ideas and perspectives.

Are you working on any new music at the moment?

Z: I’m in the final stages of my second album but I am always working on new material.

What’s the best thing to do when you want to relax and unwind from music? Walk us through it.

Z: I love spending time with my family and friends – catching up with what they’ve been up to. I love comic books, watching films, skating and cooking.

Your music is known to be mysterious and broody. Would you say that your art is different from the artist?

Z: I think finding the light and the dark in life and work is something I’ve always done and that does reflect myself as a person. I am quiet and I do like to be reflective but I can also bounce around and be the loudest person in a room. It’s just a balance.

What’s a sound that is completely out of your comfort zone, but have always wanted to try?

Z: I have a lot of respect for blues and jazz musicians.

We know all about your musical inspirations, but we also know there’s a pressure in being one. How do you stay true to yourself and to your fans?

Z: I try to stay humble and remember that there’s always lots to learn from the artists who continue to inspire me.

As a creative person, what is your permanent goal?

Z: To keep creating in all different fields – making art that is provocative, exciting and dynamic.

Any future collaborations you’re looking to tap?

Z: Collaborating with other people is always really interesting and I love bouncing off the energy of another person. There are loads of people I’d love to work with.

“Penshoppe” Interview

Earlier this month, global retail giant Penshoppe unveiled singer and international heartthrob Zayn Malik as the newest face of their Spring/Summer 2018 campaign. Joining other Penshoppe endorsers Kaia Gerber, Joran Barrett, Nam Joo Hyuk, and Bella Hadid, the former One Direction star solidifies his stand as one of the most influential names in both music and fashion.

What makes him the perfect addition to #TeamPenshoppe? “Zayn is always at the cutting edge of trends and is never afraid to experiment,” says Brand Director Jeff Bascon. Sporting easy-to-wear pieces in statement-ready prints, playful stripes, striking colors, and plush textures, Zayn looks just about ready to celebrate summer in style.

What’s it like for you to work with a brand like Penshoppe?
It’s great and super humbling to collaborate with such a cool brand.

What is it about Penshoppe’s style that attracted you to work with the brand?
I like the urban elements in Penshoppe’s pieces.

Anything from the collection you’d like to take home?
All of it, please.

Can we expect to see you in the Philippines soon?
I’d love to come. Soon.

Speaking of clothes, what’s the signature Zayn Malik look?
I think I’m known for my love of jewellery and a bold leather jacket.

Who would you consider as your style icon?
I wouldn’t necessarily say I have a style icon for me in that I dress like him, but Prince had such an amazing way of putting things together like no one else.

From tattoos, to shaving your head, you seem like you’re game to try different things. But is there a kind of look that you wouldn’t ever try?
Never say never…

How has your style evolved since your beginnings in the industry?
I’m so lucky to have been invited to incredible fashion shows and taken part in amazing shoots which really help you define your style.

What influences your sartorial choices now?
I’m always finding inspiration from the people I meet and the cities I go to. I love mixing street style with high-end pieces.

What type of music did you listen to growing up and do they play a role in the kind of music you’re making now?
I was raised on Bollywood and R&B in my house and it definitely made me who I am today.

What’s been the most challenging part about putting out your own music?
I really want to make music my fans are going to love, which is honest, and music that I’d want to listen to myself.

Can you briefly describe your creative process, from writing songs to conceptualizing for the music videos?
I make every creative decision in my career which means that what my fans see is truly authentic to who I am. I’m always gathering images and links to things.

Any musical artists that you’re looking to collab with next?
There might be some good collaborations on this album…

Music, check. Fashion, check. Will we be seeing you on the big screen anytime soon?
I absolutely love film, which is one of the reasons my Dusk Til Dawn video was directed by Mark Webb – it’s definitely something I want to explore more of in the future. And I plan to.

You’ve already accomplished a lot at 24. But do you still have a dream you’ve yet to fulfill?
Of course, time will tell.

“ELLE India” Interview

Zayn Malik doesn’t like boxes. Not the box of a moody R&B archetype. Not the box that hemmed him in as a de facto mouthpiece for the Muslim community. Certainly not the creatively restrictive box he was forced to escape as an amiable cookie cutter boy bander in One Direction. “People need to get rid of boxes. They just create divides between us. They don’t do us well,” says the 25-year-old, garrulous, utterly at ease, and almost unshackled – as if he’s shed the outer layer of his pop automaton shell to let his personality shine.

It’s been almost three years since the story of Malik’s Grand Guignol exit was firmly etched into the ruins of popular culture: after a concert in Hong Kong in 2015, Malik decided to leave the band. Pelted by rumours about his break-up with Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards and being creatively dissatisfied with 1D, the pressure to showboat as a happy-go-lucky pop tart grew unbearable. “I think it was down to the kind of music I was singing. I never really felt like I was being honest,” he says. That year, he flew back to his hometown, Bradford, in the north of England, recuperated with a bowl of his mum’s famous curry, and began hatching a plan to break out of the box.

In 2016, after a stint of soul-searching – which included, as per a statement, wanting to be a “normal 22-year-old” – he moved to Los Angeles, tracked down Frank Ocean’s producer, Malay, and crafted one of the most compelling, unexpected R&B albums, Mind Of Mine, this side of Channel Orange [Ocean’s 2012 debut]. Now, finally anxiety-free, he is ready to barrel headlong into his solo career. “I feel [like I’m] in the control seat, like I’m doing my thing,” he says. “I’m enjoying what I’m doing; so, it’s a bit different.”

Between his Los Angeles garage, where he’s built a recording space, and a studio in Pennsylvania, Malik has been putting the finishing touches to his latest album for a few months. “I try not to listen to chart music [while recording],” he says, talking about the inspiration behind this new record. “But I’m always inspired by old music that I still love from being a kid – R. Kelly, Usher, Chris Brown. A lot of people from my dad’s generation… a lot of Donell Jones.”

For his sophomore effort, Malik has recorded a staggering 87 songs that he must whittle down to a digestible 10, or so. “I tried to pick what I think is the most me, the most authentic.” What that really means is that Malik, one of the most clandestine musicians of the millennium, will have to edge even closer to being completely open, vulnerable – a far departure from his days with One Direction, when he rarely chimed in during group interviews. “I didn’t really know how to place myself in the public environment. I was always on edge.” Today, it’s clear he’s shed that reserve.

This also means that – following on from the positive response he received for his Urdu track, ‘Flower’ – he will again sing in Urdu. It reflects a level of comfort with bringing this part of his heritage – his stay-at-home dad is British-Pakistani – into his music. “There’s definitely a lot of Urdu; some nice qawwali sounds. There might even be some bhangra vibes,” says Malik, before listing the other highlights: “I have worked with AR Rahman on one song. It was interesting, because [my team] was talking to him first, saying ‘Bollywood, Bollywood…’ Then he came on Skype, and said, ‘There are a thousand different types of Bollywood. What do you mean?’ I had to explain we wanted a more qawwali, sufi kind of sound, and he got it straight away.” The resulting track is just one part of a deeper exploration of his roots. Malik has recently also recorded a song for a Bollywood film. “It’s one of the first songs I’ve sung in full Hindi, so it’s going to be cool to see what the response to that is.”

The territory isn’t unfamiliar to Malik. He grew up on a diet of Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan, and will recommend Shah Rukh Khan’s Devdas (2002) to you, any chance he gets. “Before I can even remember… [Bollywood films were] on the TV,” he says. “Bollywood is so impeccable. If you ever get a chance to watch a good Bollywood movie, watch Devdas! Have you seen Devdas? It’s got Shah Rukh Khan in it. You know who Shah Rukh Khan is?” Thank to one specific record-breaking selfie, the world know he does.

Malik and Khan met in November 2015 at the Asian Awards in London. Their selfie, posted to Khan’s Twitter, reportedly received the highest number of retweets of all time from an Indian account. “I personally wasn’t a huge fan until I met him. I realised how humble he is. Really showed a different side to him. He always came across as slightly arrogant in the movies to me, but when I met him in real life, he was so nice. He just completely changed my opinion of him.”

For now, Malik’s gaze is trained on what lies ahead, with no time for what he calls “negative shit” – be it the rumours that mired his exist from 1D (that he no longer cared about his fans or making music), or the “macho world of male aggression” he had to deal with, as a cog in the machinations of pop, an aspect he addressed in his book, Zayn (Penguin Random House, 2016).

Determined that his music embrace all facets of his identity, Malik keeps himself surrounded by “strong women”, like his mother, a halal chef at a primary school. “If you want a peaceful and intelligent solution to a problem, get a woman to solve it. I’m very lucky to have three sisters, five aunts, and my mum. They supported everything I wanted to do. With my father, he didn’t really get theatre studies too much, and didn’t ever come and see me at performances. But he’s slowly starting to get into it now that he sees my success. I always felt like women were always behind me no matter what I was doing. They just like me.” He’s getting on quite well with one in particular – model-girlfriend Gigi Hadid, who “keeps him balanced”, with the odd fashion lesson thrown in. “I didn’t even know who Karl Lagerfeld was; Gigi had to explain to me his prominence,” he smirks.

To some, Zayn Malik represents a resurgent pop icon; a pin-up that cuts a divergent path through the flavourless music that dominates the charts. To others, he is the poster boy for an ultra-modern culture clash, marrying influences from the East and West through the power of unshakeable, dance floor tunes. It’s a rare space to occupy – to be able to introduce a Western audience to a world they never before imagined, as well as represent Asian fans – and a lot of power to wield for one young star, but he’s wickedly capable. Just don’t box him in.
