The Sexiest Zayn 'Mind Of Mine' Songs, Ranked From Subtle To Steamy

From a squeaky clean boy band image to having sex be his paradise and war zone: Zayn Malik's Mind of Mine album certainly proves that he is a changed man. Chalk it up to sexual awakening or a teen boy becoming a man, the former boy bander has clearly shed his prepubescent skin, and there are no signs of turning back. Though the 22-year-old singer seems ignorant to the fact that his album was released one year to the date he exited his five-member pop band, One Direction, the album drop is still pretty damn important. Because it seems as though, someone is finally making the music they have wanted to all along and, my oh my, is it something. The amount of references to sex on Mind of Mine would make even the filthiest teen blush.

When it comes to the lyrics on Mind Of Mine, the former 1D member clearly has a lot of sexual tension and, well, hormones. There is what I like to call a Frank Ocean and Justin Timberlake-esque falsetto and a Weeknd-like downbeat trope of pain and pleasure to an album that is basically a laundry list of I'm-a-man-not-a-boy-anymore rebellion. And, ohhh, is it hot. Of course, there's always some uncertainty in an artist's lyrics to be found, because who ever really says exactly what they mean in a song? Yet, I couldn't think of a better way to spend my time than to really research all the ins-and-outs of MoM and rank all the hard and fast lyrics from best to optimal bumping and grinding... don't worry, I'll try to go slow.

10. "SHE DON'T LOVE ME"

Dear God, this track cuts really deep. Unfortunately, being the last track on the deluxe album, Malik is telling us he blatantly cheated. Just know if you ever get with him, and he ever has doubts without any clear or solid proof, he still won't be faithful, my dear:

I think I know she don’t love me/That's why I f*** around

9. "BLUE"

This heartbreaking and emotional ballad is the perfect mix of feeling and sexual innuendo. Malik talks about really craving a particular someone's body, and he thinks she needs him just the same:

She knows I need her loving/ She knows I need her touching/ She plays with my heart and emotion/ I give her my love and devotion/ She gave me her thought and a notion/ I need her body/ Needs me too

8. "BRIGHT"

When a song is labelled "Explicit" on this album, you can be sure that it will have you questioning your current relationship. Slow and steady to an upbeat hit, Malik likes to do the deed in the dark and he wants you to light up his world:

Though she is the kryptonite/ She stays in my crib tonight/ I light her like dynamite/ Load her like gigabyte/ Turn out the f***ing lights/ I wanna see you bright

7. "fOoL fOr YoU"

Though this song was a John Lennon inspired piano ballad, if you thought it would be safe from a thrusting innuendo, yup, you are mistaken, Malik is on a revolt, y'all. Grind with it:

When you're looking like this/ I just can't resist it/ I know sometimes I hide it/ But I can't this time cause it's gonna defeat me

6. "TiO"

The glimpses of Justin Timberlake are real on this one. It's almost like we are transported to 2002 and this was a song that was to be on FutureSex/LoveSounds. From the very beginning of the track, Malik's lyrics give absolutely no build up and go straight for the win:

I can taste it on your mouth/ And I can't leave it/ You're a freak like me/ Can't you see?/ We can work this something out/ And I'm believin'/ You get off on me/ It's like cheating

5. "LIKE I WOULD"

Like "BRIGHT," Malik does not want you with your current man. He wouldn't know how to thrust you, wouldn't know how to touch you, wouldn't know how to do anything well to you, so if you want to actually hit that spot, get to Malik ASAP:

He, won't touch you like I do/ He, won't love you like I would/ He don't know your body/ He don't do you right/ He won't love you like I would/ Love you like I would

4. "wRoNg (feat. Kehlani)"

There are some serious finger click beats on this track, and Kehlani could not have been a better fit. The raunchy sex lines in this song are not wrong in the slightest:

Clothes off and she so soft/ This ain’t a fair fight, yeah/ What a shared love/ Only so dry/ I'll get her wetter than ever/ Four letters is never the question/ She likes when I’m messy/ And I like when she’s undressing

3. "BoRdErZ"

Malik's sultry whispers and Weeknd-esque beats are sure to get you through your 4 a.m. tryst. He wants all of the action and wants you naked, right now:

So take it off/ Let's break down all of our walls/ Right now I wanna see it all/ I don't wanna cool off/ So lets cross the lines we lost/ Right now I wanna see it all

2. "sHe"

This song is a certified banger. This mid-tempo standout is clearly Malik not caring about someone in need, and it will it make you swoon for his bad boy imagery. Malik is just trying to love you in just the right way:

Aye, when's it starting baby?/ She looks at me like she's waiting/ Making time go slow when they show her the table.

1. "PILLOWTALK"

Was there any doubt in your mind that this would be number one? These lyrics are sure to get anyone all hot and bothered:

So we'll piss off the neighbours/ In the place that feels the tears/ The place to lose your fears/ Yeah, reckless behavior/ A place that is so pure, so dirty and raw/ In the bed all day, bed all day, bed all day/ F***ing and fighting on/ It's our paradise and it's our war zone.

It's obvious that all Malik wants is for his album to be played in the bedroom. He worked hard so you could play hard while you listen to his tracks. Or something.
