Fighting for love.
Zayn goes undercover in the Marc Webb-directed music video for his Sia-assisted song “Dusk Till Dawn.”
Judging by the previews of the visual ahead of today’s release, I assumed “Dusk Till Dawn” was shaping up to be a massive, hard-hitting pop cut. It’s actually quite subdued and relaxed, but in a good way. Sia doesn’t steal the spotlight on the chorus (as she typically does); their voices actually melt together quite nicely.
‘Cause I wanna touch you baby / And I wanna feel you too / I wanna see the sunrise,” they sing together. “On your sins just me and you / Light it up, on the run / Let’s make love tonight / Make it up, fall in love, try.”
In the blockbuster video for the track, Zayn is an undercover agent entangled in a mission to save his lover played by Girls actress Jemima Kirke.
I’m impressed. Zayn proved he can hold his own on songs with Taylor Swift, and now Sia. “Dusk Till Dawn” is a little boring, but I’ll give it the benefit of the doubt that it’s a grower.
