This one wasn’t about Gigi Hadid.

Former boy bander Zayn Malik wowed fans Thursday night with the release of the melancholic music video for second single “It’s You,” a slow jam which focuses on another blonde in his life.

The ethereal song has been widely reported to detail his painful split from ex-fiancé, Perrie Edwards.

The black and white four-minute long video seemed to follow note and naturally, actress, Nicole Peltz, was a dead ringer for his former love.

The song has dubbed as the "Perrie Edwards break-up song" by many fans.iTunes

In it, the moody crooner longs for his leading lady from a far.

Despite the constant admiration and angst, the two never get close.

“I won’t, I won’t, I won’t / Cover the scar / I’ll let it be … Am I wrong for wanting us to make it?” the singer belted out.

“It’s you.”

Eventually, a heartbroken Malik sees the object of his affection with another man. The stripped down video ends with a brooding Malik looking to the distance as she drives away.

Malik and Edwards called off their engagement in August 4, 2015 and he is now dating super model Gigi Hadid.

The contemplative video, which is strikingly different than his steamy hit “Pillowtalk,” is the second track for the 23-year-old on his debut album “Mind of Mine.” The video was made available only to Apple buyers.

The now solo artist hinted about the highly anticipated video on Twitter throughout the day.

While fans waited for the arrival at midnight, Malik had one more surprise for his legion of fans.

The singer shared an official remix of his first single featuring Lil Wayne, which is fitting as the artwork of his upcoming album has an uncanny resemblance to “Tha Carter III.”

Earlier in the day, Perrie Edwards also made headlines after accidentally setting herself on fire.

The Little Mix singer took to Twitter to share the “f—– nightmare” about how she burned her hands when the pilot light on her boiler blew up.

“Little advice from me … Stay away from fire!” she wrote.
