As his first solo track "Pillow Talk" continues to climb the charts, former One Direction member Zayn Malik has fans buzzing once again after delivering a few surprises Wednesday night.
While appearing as a musical guest on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon," the 23-year-old gave audiences the very first listen to his new track "It's You."
"Tell me your lies / Because I just can't face it," he sings. "It's you, it's you / It's you."

Malik also took time during his visit to Universal Studios Hollywood to reveal the cover art for his debut solo album.
It's the latest step in the singer's solo career that continues to succeed thanks to one hot music video and more than a few catchy lyrics. And as fans continue to soak up the new sounds, Malik is also happy with the direction his career is going.
"I feel good. I feel like that's the key thing in life, you know regardless of whatever it is that you do," he told Z100's Elvis Duran of leaving the band. "You have to always remain true to yourself and do whatever makes you happy because at the end of the day, you answer to yourself so it's a good place to be in. I'm happy about the decision I made."
He continued, "I've been working on it for a long time now so even starting everything is really exciting this week."
