If you're anything like us, you've probably been listening to Mind of Mine all weekend. If so, well done, you are a good human being and deserve all the love and happiness the world can give you.
Perhaps predictably, given a lot of Zayn fans are still/former 1D fans, the reaction to the album has been enthusiastic, to say the least. One song in particular sent the Zayn fandom into overdrive.
"INTERMISSION: floWers" is an interlude on the first half of the record and it features Zayn singing in Urdu, a language native to Pakistan where Zayn has family heritage. It's a really beautiful moment and fans obviously lost their shit when they heard it.

You lot Can hate on zayn as much as you want, releasing an Urdu track on his album takes guts, especially in today's society— Kav The Beg (@THEPAGH) March 28, 2016

Fans didn't waste anytime creating memes about their reaction to the record. We've watch this Shrek/Drunk All Summer Vine about 100 times already.
The Ziam theorists are already at it...
What fresh hell is this?
