Like I Would
by Zayn

Album: Mind of Mine (2016)
Charted: 30 55
  • This upbeat, dancefloor-ready R&B banger finds Zayn addressing a "cold-hearted" partner who's left him for another man. He tells her that doesn't believe his male competitor will be able to satisfy her in the way he did.
  • Fans have drawn comparison to the One Direction song "I Would", where the boys sung of competing for a girl who was already dating a bad boy. Each of the guys sung a verse each and Zayn sung on his:

    Would he say he's in L-O-V-E
    Well if it was me then I would
    Would he hold you when you're feeling low
    Baby you should know that I would
  • Filmed by Director X, who has previously worked with Drake ("Hotline Bling") and Rihanna ("Work") among many others, the neon-heavy video depicts a future world of precision lasers. "I enjoy making videos very much a theme. Like you saw with this one ['Like I Would'], it's the laser theme," X explained to MTV News. "It's not just a thing that happens, it's about the lasers. You saw 'Hotline Bling,' it was a theme. I like to find what a theme is gonna be and just rock with that."
