While Directioners patiently wait to see what the rest of the One Direction crew are up to, former member Zayn Malik is putting in work. His latest effort is the neon-lit video for British duo Snakehips‘ “Cruel.” In keeping with the song’s moody vibe, a sullen Malik is seen wandering through a dimly-lit nightclub, where he’s joined by dancers moving to the song’s slinky beat as his face pops up on multiple TV screens scattered about the set.
Check out the clip:
Zayn, of course, has enjoyed an impressive start to his post-1D career. His debut solo single “Pillowtalk” hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 earlier this year, while his first album, Mind of Mine, reached the top of the Billboard 200. In addition to working with Snakehips, Malik has also recently hopped on WhatsApp with M.I.A. to cook up a collabo called “Freedun” for her fifth, and final, studio effort, AIM.
