Zayn, the former One Direction star, recently dropped his latest single “What I Am” as a precursor to his upcoming album release. However, the track’s reception in his home country, the U.K., has been lackluster. Debuting on the songs chart at No. 89, it stands as one of his lowest-charting solo efforts. While there’s still hope for improvement in the coming weeks, it’s uncertain given the current trends in streaming-dominated rankings. Zayn’s solo career has seen both highs and lows.

At the moment, “What I Am” stands as the second-lowest-charting track of Zayn’s solo career in the U.K., with only “Entertainer” having peaked lower at No. 95. While there is still potential for the single to gain traction in the coming weeks, its initial performance suggests a lack of enthusiasm from listeners.

Released on March 15, “What I Am” has yet to make a significant commercial impact on charts worldwide. It failed to enter the Billboard charts in America, indicating a subdued reception even internationally.

Throughout his solo career, Zayn has experienced both highs and lows, with “What I Am” adding to the latter. While he has scored eight top 40 hits in the U.K., many of his recent releases have struggled to gain traction, stalling in the lower reaches of the charts.

As a former member of One Direction, Zayn achieved global success with the boy band, but his solo endeavors have faced mixed outcomes. While anticipation for “Room Under the Stairs” remains high, the lackluster debut of “What I Am” raises questions about the album’s potential reception.
