Album: Nobody is Listening (2021)

Songfacts®:

  • Zayn wrote this slow and sensual song about Gigi Hadid, who is his girlfriend and the mother of their daughter. During the dreamy R&B infused track, he anticipates getting it on with Gigi.

    I've been waiting all night to get closer
    And you already know I got it for ya


    And assures her he'll take things at her own pace.

    If we're movin' too fast, we can slow up
    Baby, this far from mediocre, no
  • Zayn first met model Gigi Hadid in late 2015 on the set of his "Pillowtalk" music video. They started an on-off-on relationship that was cemented in September 2020 when Hadid gave birth to their daughter.
  • RCA Records released "Vibez" as the second and final single from Nobody Is Listening on January 8, 2021. During the song, Zayn encourages Gigi to be at ease as he will be gentle with her.

    You and me here in this room
    Imagining things we could do
    Won't tell no lies, no lies to you

    Los Angeles native Rogét Chahayed, who has co-written and co-produced hit songs for the likes of D.R.A.M. ("Broccoli"), Halsey "Bad at Love"), Travis Scott ("Sicko Mode") and Drake ("Laugh Now Cry Later").
