Perrie Edwards is not a fan of Zayn Malik's new single, It's You. The 23-year-old singer debuted his new track from the forthcoming solo album Mind Of Mine, on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, which is apparently inspired by his highly-publicised split from the Little Mix singer in August 2015.

The song's opening lyrics stated: "She's got, she's got, she's got her own reasons for talking to me/She don't, she don't, she don't give a f**k about what I need." The performance marks Malik's first as a solo artist since quitting One Direction in March 2015.

"If she heard the song a few months ago she would have had more of an emotional reaction to it, but her tears about the breakup are not there anymore. She has moved on," a source told Hollywood Life. "Sure she is interested in hearing the songs about her but she is in a good place right now and can hear them with an open heart and an open mind. If these songs help him get over the relationship then she is happy because she is now over it herself."

"Zayn had his emotions over the breakup that he needed to get out of him and it needed to be put on paper," the insider added. "He wrote a lot of songs geared towards Perrie but this one spoke volumes and said the words he needed to say about the situation. He wrote it to finally get over her."

Edwards and Malik started dating in December 2011 after meeting on the sets of The X Factor. They got engaged in August 2013 and were reportedly planning to get married at Disneyland Paris in June.

In an interview with Billboard magazine, Malik talked about what he is looking for in a relationship. He said: "I need a challenge. Also, I like girls that are a bit chunky in certain areas — the nice areas. I like a fuller woman. I enjoy an intellectual conversation as well, where someone can construct a sentence beyond what hair and makeup they're wearing, and talk about something political or about the world. I like an opinion."
