Taylor’s and Zayn’s “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” is a song from the upcoming Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack, noted Billboard.
Turning to social media, Swift unveiled a teaser for the track as well as the artwork. She and Malik alternate lines, and the lyrics don’t hold back when it comes to the sizzling hot sexy message.
“Baby, baby, I feel crazy/Up all night, all night and every day/Give me something, oh, but you say nothing.”
The former One Direction star croons his lines.
“I don’t wanna live forever/’Cause I know I’ll be living in pain,” sings Malik.
You can listen to the song in Taylor’s post below.
To see Fifty Shades Darker, head to a theater starting February 10.
Zayn and Taylor successfully kept their collaboration under wraps until the surprise release, but the duet quickly soared to the top of the charts.
Pointing out that Malik’s and Swift’s duet was “completely unexpected,” 96.1 Kiss noted that their collaboration, “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever,” for the Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack features Taylor “breathlessly singing about a failed relationship.”
Zayn soars in his fierce falsetto, and the former One Direction star also shared a post on Instagram about working with Swift.
For Taylor, this marks her first official offering since 1989, her fifth studio album. Hits include “Blank Space,” “Style,” “Out of the Woods,” “Bad Blood,” and “Shake It Off.” There had been speculation from fans that she would drop a new album in October because of her two-year album release cycle.
During the summer, Swift earned buzz when it emerged that she had ghostwritten “This Is What You Came For” for ex-boyfriend DJ Calvin Harris and collaborator Rihanna. (Taylor’s credit came in the form of the pseudonym Nils Sjoberg.)
As for Zayn, he dropped his debut solo release in March of 2016. Malik’s Mind of Mine featured the lead single “Pillowtalk.”
Taylor and the former One Direction star didn’t even do advance hype for the song, but despite choosing a surprise release, their collaboration soared to number one on iTunes, noted Hollywood Life.
It took only an hour after the release of the duet “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” on December 8 to hit the top spot.
Swift was so excited that she shared a screenshot of the iTunes chart featuring their Fifty Shades Darker song ranked at No. 1, posting it on social media.
“Well that escalated quickly,” wrote Taylor.
So how does Zayn’s girlfriend Gigi Hadid feel about this sexy duet with Swift? Gigi turned to Twitter to react, proudly tweeting her support, reported Teen Vogue.
“The supermodel has always been supportive of her loved one’s endeavors,” pointed out the media outlet.
Hadid shared the artwork in her tweet.
However, while Hadid was quick to hop on Twitter and share Swift and Malik’s surprise collaboration, her posts come in the wake of her announcement that she’s planning a social media hiatus.
Gigi shared that she plans to take a break from social media, noting that she “wanted to detox,” reported USA Today.
“I’m taking a month off, actually, during New Years,” revealed Hadid. “I’m not deleting my account, I’m just taking the apps off my phone.”
But while fans may miss those images of Gigi on her social media accounts for a month, behind the scenes, Hadid and Malik are still maintaining their romance, according to a new report.
