Zayn Sings About Saving a Love on His New Single “Better”

Could it be about Gigi?

Zayn Malik is back with a sultry new single, “Better.” Taking a noticeably R&B route, the former One Direction member (and new dad) croons about what seems to be a romance salvaged after heartbreak with lyrics like, “Gotta let it go so your heart don’t break” and “Why wait to hate? Can we save love?” The song comes with a moody new music video too.

Fans of the 27-year-old singer could easily speculate whether “Better” was inspired by his longtime romance with model Gigi Hadid, with whom he just welcomed a daughter. After confirming their relationship in 2016, the couple have publicly broken up then rekindled their love twice, in 2018 and then again in 2019. By January this year, they were back together and going strong. Malik, however, hasn’t confirmed the exact inspiration for the song just yet.

Even after he and Hadid parted ways in 2018, he admitted that he thought their love would be long-lasting. “I was aspiring to be in love with someone for the rest of my life and the rest of theirs, as we all do,” he said two years ago.

Now, the young stars are happy parents to a baby girl, which they just announced on Wednesday night. “Grateful to know her, proud to call her mine, & thankful for the life we will have together,” Malik said of his and Hadid’s first child together.

Read the full lyrics to Zayn’s “Better” below.

Hope I only leave good vibes on your living room floor
It hurt so bad that I didn’t when you asked for more
Your Dad probably loves me more than he ever did now
Yeah we finally knocked down

‘Cause sometimes it’s better that way
Gotta let it go so your heart don’t break
‘Cause I love you
Yeah baby I love you
Just this one time hear what I’m tryna say
Know you might not feel quite the same way
But I love you
I tell you, I love you

Why? Why wait to fight?
Give it a try, oh I say goodbye while it’s right
Can we save
Tears in our eyes
I’m making you cry
Why wait to hate? Can we save love?

I fell in, I’m falling, I’m for you
I can’t let you fall through the floor too
It’s a gamble to take any more of you

Still in my mind sometimes, I must admit it
Like it’s a crime, on trial I got acquitted
Me and you wasn’t meant, we wasn’t fitted
Like it’s a glove, I hated to admit it

‘Cause obviously we go back
So why would we ruin that?
In too deep, we’re rearranged
Now you wanna ask for names
We can’t let this fruit go bad
Saying things we can’t take back
In too deep, we’re rearranged
Say you feel the same

Why? Why wait to fight?
Gave it a try, why say goodbye while it’s right
Can we save
Tears in your eyes
And watching you cry
Why wait to hate? Can we save love?
