zayn malik's take on the 'ghostbusters' theme song is surprisingly sexy

'Who you gonna call?' has never sounded quite like this. Zayn's has turned the kitchy classic romantic.

Who you gonna call? Zayn Malik, apparently. The singer has shared his take on the Ghostbusters theme to accompany the release of the all female reboot, and it's certainly a touch more sultry than the original.

On "wHo," Zayn samples the catchphrase we all know and flips it into something a little more romantic: "Who you gonna call, gonna call? When you need somebody, when you need someone." It's a pop earworm with an R&B influence — basically classic Zayn.

The singer joins A$AP Ferg, Jeremih, Mark Ronson, Missy Elliot, and DMX on the eclectic soundtrack — even Fall Out Boy has thrown in its version of the theme tune. The reboot was maligned by sexist critics in the lead-up to its release, who've since been silenced by its strong strong box office debut. By the looks of things, Zayn's "wHo" is receiving the same warm welcome.

It's the second track he's released this week, following the Snakehips collab "Cruel." Give "wHo" a spin below.
