11 "Pillowtalk" Memes That Make The Zayn Malik Single Even More Enjoyable

Zayn Malik's new music has been anticipated from the day he left One Direction. And, since the former 1D singer dropped plenty of clues in the lead up to the release of his first solo single, anticipation for "Pillowtalk" was real. So far, the song hasn't disappointed. Not only were fans on standby to hear Malik's debut as soon as it dropped, their reactions were on instant fleek, with listeners sharing "Pillowtalk" memes as soon as they could.

Some of these Zayn Malik-inspired memes are on the creepy side (just wait until you see the ones involving those sweet and innocent Minions), and many reference One Direction, somewhat unsurprisingly. The fact that so many fans of Malik's music have taken to the Internet with memes in praise of his new single shows that his popularity hasn't been damaged by the so-called rift with One Direction, and that he's already being taken seriously as a solo artist — something that's clearly important to the musician. While the "Pillowtalk" video speaks for itself, showing Malik with real-life girlfriend Gigi Hadid, the memes celebrating the singer's success are completely varied.
