Zayn is back on his love game with “Fingers,” a slow jam that dropped on Thursday morning (Oct. 18) as the third song from his highly anticipated, currently unscheduled second album on RCA Records. In keeping with Zayn’s blunted on reality vibe, the hazy R&B ballad is about a love that is so paralyzing that it makes your digits freeze up mid-text.
“I can’t even text ya/ Cuz my fingers ain’t work, but my heart is/ If you wanna let me know where you are, then/ I could come (I could come alive)/ I could come and love, yeah,” he sings over a click-clack piston beat and soothing keys on the track he wrote and recorded over the summer in London. So far fans have heard the infectious dance groove “Sour Diesel” and the Timbaland-assisted jam “Too Much.”
