“Pillowtalk” shot to No. 1 on the Hot 100 in its first week, making it Malik’s first-ever time at the top. His highest-charting record had previously been “Best Song Ever” at No. 2 with his former bandmates of One Direction.
Zayn’s song was released at midnight on Jan. 29, and was accompanied by a steamy music video starring Malik and his girlfriend Gigi Hadid. It has garnered more than 125 million YouTube streams thus far.
The solo star’s new direction has brought about an abundance of remixes, so Billboard Dance has collected the best of them.
