2017 was full of collaborations for RCA’s ZAYN, with moderate and massive finishes for releases that included PARTYNEXTDOOR, Sia and Taylor Swift. Not in the mix, however, was the former boy band member’s sophomore album, which his dedicated fans have been waiting on for some time. Well, the wait may soon be over, as the performer has a new single on the air and on the charts with “Let Me”. Released last Thursday morning, it went as high as #8 on iTunes in the U.S., though it also entered the top ten in 79 more affiliates of the over 100 countries that reported the single on their respective all-genre charts. Global streaming for “Let” is solid as well: so far, the song has peaked at #28 on Spotify’s Global tally (and #39 on the U.S. list) with a one-day high of just under 1.942 million plays worldwide on Friday. Currently just past ten million streams at the platform, prominent playlists like Pop Rising and Today’s Top Hits continue to boost its overall profile. A music video for the tune, which debuted the same day as its digital release, is now well over 24 million views in under a week, due in part to YouTube’s Trending chart. All in all, ZAYN should be content that his new Direction is working out very well. (Images courtesy of RCA Records and YouTube / @ZaynVEVO)
