Jonas and Gigi Hadid quietly split after five months of dating back in early November 2015, just one month after they made their red carpet debut as a couple. According to People, “Nothing serious happened… it wasn’t a dramatic breakup. It was just hard to make it work with their schedules. They will definitely remain friends.”
But by November’s end, Hadid was already rumored to be in a new relationship with her current beau Zayn Malik. They swiftly confirmed their romance by stepping out holding hands on Nov. 30, and now have a gorgeous Italy-based spread in the May issue of Vogue.
ET caught up with the 26-year-old at WE Day in Inglewood, CA on Thursday (April 7), where they asked him about a mysterious tweet dated from February making reference to a song he was writing:
Always fun writing a song that’s gonna piss someone off. 😏

He explained, teasing that we’ll “definitely know” who his new song is about:
Songwriting is an artist’s way of expressing their journal and their personal life. I don’t really do much speaking on my personal life, so the fact that I get to probably answer a few questions – people are wondering what I’m thinking about – so it’s nice to be able to put that out there.
As of right now, you’ll definitely know who it’s about [when you hear it]. But sometimes you have to sugarcoat it so it’s not so obvious.
Jonas and DNCE, made up of Jack Lawless, Cole Whittle and JinJoo Lee, are currently in the studio working on their first album which has an expected release this summer.
I would say August, late August – and we’re just grinding away in the studio. I’m going into the studio right after this to finish a track, so there’s a lot of exciting new music I’ve been working on that isn’t on [our 2015 debut] EP [SWAYY].
I feel like we’ve evolved quite a bit even from that – which was really recorded early last year – so now, a year later, I feel like it’s nice to be able to release almost a new album in a way, when you’ve had time to progress.
It’s going to be a big tour, 50 shows, we’re going to all these different cities. I haven’t played some of these venues in years, [so] I’m looking forward to it.
