When news broke out that Aladdin was coming back on-screen, fans went on an overdrive to have singer Zayn Malik cast as the new Disney pauper-turned-prince. However, the role ultimately went on to the Canadian actor Mena Massoud. Recently, our dreams (sort of) came true when it was revealed that Zayn would be a part of the Aladdin soundtrack. Then came the pictures from Central Park, in New York, where a handsome Zayn was seen shooting for the music video of a modern version of the iconic Aladdin track, A Whole New World.
Finally, the music video for A Whole New World featuring Zayn Malik and Zhavia Ward is out and it’s magical beyond belief. To see Zayn’s soothing vocals interspersed with Zhavia’s raspy voice is just the spin required for the legendary romantic track. With New York City as the backdrop, Zayn is nothing short of Prince Charming with his formal attire. Zayn plus female collabs have worked wonders in the past, whether it be I Don’t Want To Live Forever from Fifty Shades Darker with Taylor Swift or even Dusk Till Dawn with Sia.
Meanwhile, Zayn seems to be in a romantic state of mind, as evidenced by his Instagram page. The Pillowtalk singer’s latest IG post talks things love and marriage. We wonder if a possible reconciliation with ex-girlfriend Gigi Hadid is in the works! As they say, the third time’s the charm.
