Zayn’s Leaked Song


Apparently there’s a new leaked song by Zayn called “Leave Before You Love Me”. This is apparently a demo Zayn did for a potential collab with DJ Marshmello, which was eventually passed on to the Jonas Brothers? Please correct me if I’m wrong. Here’s the Jonas Brother’s version which was released on May 21, 2021. Of course it doesn’t compare to Zayn’s, but it’s worth a listen lol.

Their version is lovely too (it sounds a bit more up-tempo and more committed to the retro vibes than Zayn’s mellow, less polished demo version) and the song is sonically more fitting for their style, in my opinion. The lyrics, however, are so absurdly fitting for Zayn as a person—it’s wild. I resonate with them more when Zayn sings it, because he tends to deliver everything with an unforgiving emotionality. His vocals are just too rich and overflowing with…melancholy? I wonder if he had a hand in writing it? Unfortunately I’ve seen no proof of that thus far, but we should all keep searching lol.


I saw everyone talking about this on the Discussion Post so I brought it over here to further that discussion.

Reportedly, Zayn’s cousins reacted to the cover on IG.

This is Daniaal Malik, so he seems to be a trusted source:


Why do the Jonas brothers get all of Zayn’s sloppy seconds??? For real, it’s just like “Once Chance To Dance” Hahahahaha

**record screeches to a halt** Oh shit, mentioning sloppy seconds is hella awkward because…well:

Nevermind! I’m gonna leave that alone. What a sticky situation! Suffice it to say, Zayn has a strange history with the Jonas Brothers. Well, with Joe. It’s mainly with Joe. Joe is the issue here. He steals all Zayn’s songs, so Zayn just turned right around and stole his girl….or something like that. Revisionist history!

Oh dear, things just keeps getting more awkward here, don’t they? Yikes:


Sheesh, how do so many of Zayn’s songs get leaked? Is he doing it himself? Are they songs he wants out there even if they don’t officially become apart of his discography? I have so many questions, sir. For now, I suppose I need to direct my questions at everyone else.

1.) Did Zayn write this? How can we be assured that he did?

2.) When was it written and recorded? Is there any confirmation that he was working with any of these producers recently? I can’t find any.

3.) Why didn’t he release it himself?

4.) What do you think of the song? Any relation to Zarry? I personally feel the lyrics are incredibly fitting for a certain time period (cough 2015 cough) but if there’s no proof that Zayn wrote this, then it’s just reckless speculation on my part to relate it to Zarry, and maybe the lyrics are just a coincidence?


It is quite wild to listen to though, hearing him express these things that sound so raw and close to home. Although he’s talking about leaving someone in the dead of night (gosh the imagery of that is poignant as hell, especially if you picture an ill-lit hotel room in Hong Kong **violently jots down notes for the sequel**) there is a vulnerability and honesty here that I respect. Again, even though he’s ditching someone, I totally get it. “Gotta leave before you love me…” is a relatable sentiment, and I also feel it’s very Zayn. “I’d rather be lonely than wrapped around your body too tight…”

The vivid lyrics about being “naked” and all the stuff about the “bed” in general are very Zayn as well. So is wanting to stick to the physical chemistry, as opposed to risking getting his heart broken by involving emotions like “love.” So is the lyric about being “on the edge.” That was Zayn’s intro to “Mind Of Mine” and it’s also where I believe his head was in 2015. Lastly, I feel comfortable insisting this carries a Zaynesque sentiment (which it fits my personal Zarry theory **maniacal laughter**) because it’s the exact same sentiment he expresses in the uber emotional “Golden” from 2015.

Listening to these to songs (LBYLM and Golden) back to back (which is not recommended btw if you value your sanity and peace of mind) makes the respective lyrics unbelievably more dynamic. Almost like we’ve suddenly been gifted with a 360 degree image of what was once only a one-dimensional notion about Zarry’s shared past. Then enters Harry’s response to Zayn’s “Golden,” also boldly titled “Golden,” which further paints a picture and adds clarity a few years down the road.

Oh boy, I can’t breathe-


Zayn:

I hope and I hope you’ll still be fine
I know that it’s bright, look through the light and see
It’s meant to be
I know that it’s bright, look through the light and see
It’s meant to be

Harry:

Take me back to the light…I know you were way too bright for me


Listening to these three songs back-to-back are a killshot. Just don’t do it. Just don’t listen to them in the same day, or month, or year for crying out loud! They pull at my heart strings like a bish. It’s just so damn….ROMANTIC? Gah!!


Curses! We still have no clue if Zayn even wrote this song, or when. So relating it to Zarry right now feels like a stretch. I’ll leave it at that. Would love to hear your thoughts!

Why does Zayn want everyone to know he demoed this song? I think it’s general practice for most artists but why this one in particular? Is he just being arrogant and saying he passed because it didn’t meet his standards? It does sound more boy band than his vision. Is he giving the finger to his management/record label? He could be a writer and is using a pseudonym and released it as a clue. Or maybe the lyrics are the reason. Is he speaking to someone in particular? Is this connected to the rap song? A preamble of sorts? Oh I’m the cat that will die from curiosity…

Hi A.D. Its me Diana here. Call me light headed, impulsive, irrational…
My first thought when I heard Zayn’s “cover”.? They tried it, they met, Zayn went head over hills… AGAIN . And ran away. Cough. It was too much. Obviously. I just can’t neglect all the “coincidences “ that we’ve heard and saw about the clothes, pearl, Z covers. I mean – seriously? And H convenient cover up with O. Just spare me the nonsense
For some reason I’m not surprised.
I also feel like you pointed out before – Z became bolder, more open, like he is trying something. He is tired? Maybe. So. Its new. Its not 5 year old.
And yea one more thing – my theory about inZayn channel.
How about it is a channel of Z talking to H. Communication just to him. Sentences from songs. The order. Sudden appearance of leaked ones with quiet meaningful lyrics.
So this is my 2 cents.

Sounds like the perfect My Policeman soundtrack to me for a really kitschy goodbye scene hahaha jeez imagine watching the film and all of a sudden this song comes on lol

It doesn’t fit Zayn’s overall style though, so no wonder he didn’t go on with it. If he’s not credited he didn’t write it…

But I kinda do think he’s leaking all of the stuff that has been leaked.

Zayn is always singing about leaving. He’s getting me tire like man if you want to leave just do it lol. He’s not noticing Harry is living his life and his true and isn’t waiting anymore. I think Z is too comfortable with H been the one always following him. I wish z realizes that he already left before and ended up the same or in a worst situation , but man he such a hard headed. On another note 📝 can they leake a kiss with H and david. Will MPM even come out this year. Hopefully I can’t wait 😩

Also,, about the song …..it does give me alot of Zayn vibez……I mean’getting naked’ and all….lol…..but I’m not sure whether it gives me zarry vibez……..unless if Z wrote it maybe 2012-2013……when he was realizing both him and H were falling for each other but he was afraid maybe…….hence leaving at the middle of the night……..and feeling guilty for playing with his heart……. because it wouldn’t make sense about ….”cause love is blind…..u know I got u…..” and “it grows and it grows…..” to H …..then he goes ahead and sing….”leave B4 u love me”…….he either wrote it with a diff person in mynd which I highly doubt all else he wrote about H but wrote long b4 he accepted he was also into H…….daamn …..they don’t call him mysterious for nothing ……but the song is so Z …..the ego….and all let’s get naked vibe 100%

i personally dont think z was a writer he just did a demo and passed on the song. the timing of the leak was interesting as is all of z leaks. i really like the jonas brothers version (dont get the marshmello) but they are no match to z sultry

Random;that photo of Z in the thumbnail 🔥🔥daamn he is hot!!also I wanted to say,when I was re-listening to H’s fine line I was like ‘wtf is so special about Z that gave H have a hard tym moving on ….is it the bomb s***?…haha….why does he seem lk he loves this boy so much?” Later I stumped upon a 1D clip and they were performing a certain song and the boys made a straight line lyk they always do…….Niall ,Louis and liam were goofing around and Z was watching them while laughing…….but H was distant from them all and was watching them lyk ” I don’t belong here,I don’t fit in”😪and he looked sad……sec later…..I guess Z felt his gaze becos he didn’t look at him and he moved next to him…….uughh daamn…….it was So overwhelming especially since it was Soo secretive….uughh….and I was lyk …….how dare I question why H feel hard 4 this guy ……. I mean Z may act all unfuckwidable now but while in 1D he really took care of H and loved him selflessly……uggggh……. also “leave B4 u love me” would be a great title for the sequel since we all know Z def pushed H away

I hope he didn’t write these lyrics, otherwise he’s been saying the same thing since 2014 basically. Doesn’t want to reciprocate his lover’s feelings, and too proud or scared to feel anything and go beyond their sexual connexion. Sigh…

If Harry ever truly falls in love with another all I have to say it’s a wrap for Z. He can kiss his baby goodbye forever.

“Zayn has a strange history with Jonas Brothers” – can’t stop laughing. Seems like Joe is way much faster figuring out what’s best for him as seeing he didn’t hesitate to drop the whole G act asap lol where poor Z seems to be stuck for decades.

But, on to be serious and attempt to answer your questions, AD. I think

1) Z didn’t pen those lyrics, otherwise he would be 100% officially credited for those, no? Or is it possible for a writer to go incognito but still get to claim royalties unofficially?

OR – Z could have given the lyrics away in return for smth else (but for what?).. Or simply he might been paid for the song? Can we see Z as a ghost writer? I agree with you that this song screams zarry though the soundtrack seems not Z’s style (though he did beats like that in the past).

2) Don’t think he worked with any of these producers but I really think it was sort of demo that wasn’t chosen as a final version. Idk why honestly, but suppose it’s not always up to Z to choose who to work with and now that Z’s overall popularity index in the industry has been dramatically decreasing, I can easily see Marshmello postponing working with him. Z could been trying to make new connections, work on new ‘beneficial’ collabs which didn’t turn out that well.

I think it could have been recorded around January – February. But then again it could have been ‘on the shelf’ much longer, as many other Z’s unreleased songs that never saw the light of the day.
