Have you ever wanted To listen to a new band or musician and not sure where to start? Well, instead of listening to their commercial music, why not start with something off the album first! Today we talk about an musician who rose to fame in one of the biggest boybands of recent years and then broke millions of hearts when he left and took a turn to a solo career – Zayn. 

BeFoUr – Mind of Mine Album

No, this is not a spelling typo, all the songs to come off of ZAYNS debut album have a mix of capital letters and small ones throughout all the song titles which may be a tad irritating to some. This song has a good beat with a mix of good lyrics, it starts of slow and melodic and then grows into a song with an uptempo beat. It has a unique sound and is very different and ‘grown up’ to music that he was creating with his past band, One Direction and it is clear to see how he has been able to re-define himself as an artist.

sHe – Mind of Mine album

This song like the rest of the album has a mellow melody to it which oozes r’n’b and hip hop. The lyrics are simple and easy to get into your head but when it is mixed into the rhythm and beat it is hard to not like this song. Like all of the songs on the album – wait for the part where ZAYN starts to reach the high notes. The musical interlude at the end is a stand out part of the track.

INTERMISSION: fLoWer – Mind of Mine album

Another thing that makes this album unique to others is that it has an intermission song halfway through the album that is very different sound to the rest of the tracks. The thing that makes this musical interlude stand out is that it combines a Pakistani folk sound with Urdu lyrics.

fOol fOr YoU – Mind of Mine album

This song is a very good album track as it is very different to the rest of the songs on the album – it uses a melodic piano to create a really nice song about romance. If you are to listen to any of the album tracks from this album then it should be this one to show ZAYNs singing capacity and why he is as popular as he is today.
