Zayn Malik's debut solo album is on the horizon. He's rocked his way through cover features with The FaderBillboard and most recently, English publication The Sunday Times. We know his first single, "Pillowtalk," arrives this Friday and we're just ready for it all, man.

Something interesting happened in his Times story, however. The guy talked about things a bit more adult than his One Direction past would lead on. According to the NME, he told the mag:

"Everybody has sex, and it’s something people want to hear about. It’s part of everybody’s life, a very big part of life! And you don’t want to sweep it under the carpet. It has to be talked about."

The pub made sure to ask about a future 1D reunion, to which Malik answered, "If the time was right and that was the thing to do, then I would make that decision when it came around." Everything happens so much.
