Wrong
by Zayn

Album: Mind of Mine (2016)
  • This song finds Zayn trading hazily lustful vocals with Kehlani. The former One Direction singer told Zane Lowe on Beats 1 that he had been a fan of the American R&B singer, since the beginning of her music career. So, he "reached out to her, played a couple of songs for her in L.A. and she's really cool, she liked the music, so she got in the studio within a couple of days, she gave me a song back that she wanted me to do, and we just got it done straight away."
  • Oakland-based R&B singer-songwriter Kehlani first came to prominence with her debut commercial mixtape, You Should Be Here, which was released in 2015. The record earned a Grammy nomination for Best Contemporary Urban Album.
  • "Wrong" was originally written as a rap, which Zayn then used to create lyrics for the song. After he played it for Kehlani, the pair decided to make it a duet.
  • Zayn told Zane Lowe the song is, "all about looking in the wrong place for love."
