MIND OF MINE has received rave reviews from the press, with USA Today calling the album a “catchy, sexy, and fully modern take on contemporary R&B.” Rolling Stone declares that ZAYN’s “range and vocals shine from the clipped phrasing of ‘She’ to the booming falsetto belt on ‘Befour,” and SPIN proclaims “Sonically, you won’t find many pop albums in 2016 more immaculately conceived than this.”
