New Music: Snakehips feat. ZAYN – ‘Cruel’

Following the March release of his solo debut Mind of Mine, ZAYN connects with British duo Snakehips on their new collaboration “Cruel.”

Over a thumping bassline, the former One Direction member falls under the spell of a seductress. “Back where we left off,” he sings. “Watch you take your dress off / I’ve been by myself remembering you / Your body hurts me / Loopin’ ’round like CCTV / In all this bitterness, you stay so sweet.”

In April, Snakehips released its four-track EP All My Friends featuring Tinashe, Chance the Rapper, and Tory Lanez.
