Entertainer
by Zayn

Album: Icarus Falls (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • This melancholic song is about a fake lover. Her games and lies didn't fool Zayn, who refers to her as an entertainer as he enjoyed watching her "perform" her tricks.

    Don't you take me for a fool
    In this game, I own the rules
    You were my favorite entertainer
    I watch you, I laugh with, with fake it too
    Don't you take me for a fool
    I'm a show you a thing or two
  • It may be noteworthy that almost all of Zayn's exes such as Little Mix's Perrie Edwards and Gigi Hadid are entertainers. The song's music video shows a lookalike of Gigi Hadid, whom Zayn split with in March 2018 after more than two years together.
  • The song's music video is set in a gentleman's club, There Zayn spots his former love interest played by Instagram model Sofia Jamora. The clip continues the storyline established with his previous visuals for "Dusk Til Dawn" and "Let Me."
