Zayn Malik is going after another girl in his new "It's You" music video.

The former One Direction member got actress Nicola Peltz to play his unrequited love interest, and the blogosphere can't help but point out that she looks strikingly similar to his ex-fiancee, Perrie Edwards.

Malik quieted those critiques this week by releasing a NSFW remix of "Pillowtalk" on iTunes that featured Lil Wayne. "F**king and fighting, ah f**k it, if she love it I Like it," Weezy raps. "We f**k for a truce. ...Put my tongue in her noose, put my thumb in her 'boose. Make her jump through the roof. Now she touching the moon."

He's certainly broken away his days in One Direction.
