World Premiere: Snakehips & Zayn Malik - "Cruel" [Full Audio + Review]
British electronic production duo Snakehips (very famous these days for their amazing collaboration with Tinashe “All My Friends”) released today, July 15th, the full version of their new song featuring Zayn Malik titled “Cruel” - which they teased earlier this week by way of a Facebook clip (showing what seemed to be a few seconds of the music video for the song).
“Cruel” (as well as “All My Friends”) is said to be part of Snakehips’ full-length debut studio album that should be dropping later this year via Sony.
Snakehips’ first collaboration with former One Direction star Zayn Malik is a dark love song featuring a fusion of R&B and electronic music. Zayn does what he does best in “Cruel” by providing a great dose of his warm, smoky and soulful vocals.
"It's such a cruel world / Savin' all my love for you, girl / It's such a cruel world / Maybe I found somethin' good, girl", sings Mr. Z in the chorus of the new Snakehips single. "Cruel" talks about the possibility of still finding someone worth loving in this decaying world.
