Put over Malik's microphone for Mind of Mine, as mentioned in this January 28, 2016 Mashable article.
Malik's method includes singing into an STD-proofed microphone because Malay, who worked with Frank Ocean producing Channel Orange, told him to and you should really do whatever you can to be more like Frank Ocean.
"He does weird things," Malik explained. "Like he told me once he put a condom over a microphone and put it in water and swung it around to capture the sound of the beat."
