It's time: Zayn Malik's first song all by his lonesome is coming. The singer originally left One Direction to be a normal 22-year-old, but then decided his time would be better spent becoming a solo star. Directioners everywhere — us here at M included — were initially shocked but since he has the vocal chords of an angel who can hit high notes unlike anyone else, it's understandable why the world needs to hear music from him. Zayn took to Twitter to announce his first single "Pillowtalk" will be making it's debut this Friday, January 29.

Why hello there shirtless Zayn, nice to see you again. While we don't know what this song is going to sound like, we're pretty sure it's going to be totally different from anything he created with 1D. Get ready.
In honor of Zayn's new music, we decided to round up GIF reactions that perfectly explain the world's reaction to the new tune, courtesy of Zayn himself. Click through the gallery to see them and then tell us in the comments below what you think about "Pillowtalk!"
At first we're all like, "OMG, the moment has arrived. SOLO ZAYN is actually coming."
