Zayn Covers Beyoncé’s ‘Me, Myself and I’

Zayn is putting his spin on a ‘Yonce classic.

The former One Direction member gears up for his new album by covering Beyoncé’s hit off her 2003 solo debut Dangerously in Love. Over the mid-tempo melody (originally produced by Scott Storch), the pop heartthrob adds his own sultry vocals and ad-libs, while remaining true to the original.

if( !0 ){
googletag.display( “rapup_1x1a_2” );
}
});

The cover earned praise from his girlfriend Gigi Hadid, who tweeted, “I meeeaaannnnn,” along with heart eye emojis and exclamation points.

Zayn posted the song as a teaser for his upcoming album. “Album is on the way, he tweeted. “Got a few surprises for you too .. here’s a taster.”

He is now readying his sophomore album, the follow-up to 2016’s Mind of Mine, which has already spawned singles including “Let Me” and “Entertainer.”

“I’m trying to keep it as mysterious as possible but there’s a plan with the roll out,” Zayn told Beats 1’s Zane Lowe in April. “It’s going to be different to I think anything anyone has done before.”
