But even though this is the former One Direction star’s moment, he is still sad. So sad. Matter of fact you can just see the sadness radiating off of him like cartoon stink lines in his new video for “It’s You,” featured above.
And why is Malik sad in “It’s You”? Well, some are surmising that this video and song are about one particular point of sadness from his past (Malik has many facets to his sadness, in case you weren’t aware). That is, fans have speculated that “It’s You” is about his former fiancée, Little Mix’s Perrie Edwards. The fact that he spends the whole video pining for a woman who looks very, very much like Edwards— Transformers: Age of Extinction star Nicola Peltz—only bolsters this theory.
Yes, it’s sad—but it’s also sleek and beautiful in a Calvin Klein fragrance ad sort of way. As a matter of fact, the only thing preventing “It’s You” from being a cologne ad is the lack of cologne. See it for yourself, above.
