VIDEO: Zayn Malik Opens Up About Taylor Swift Collaboration

Zayn Malik is spilling the details about his “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” collaboration with Taylor Swift!

While making an appearance on The Elvis Duran and The Morning Show, the 23-year-old singer explained how the duo came to do the song together.

“We were kind of in separate places when I mentioned the idea to her. I spoke to her on the phone and she heard the song because (producer) Jack [Antonoff] had played it to her. So she really liked it and she went in the studio the next day,” he said.

Zayn added, “The interesting thing was she’s actually friends with Gi, so she already reached out because Jack had just played her the song anyway, just because we’d done it together and she really liked it…so I asked if she wanted to be on it and she was cool with it.”

Check out the entire interview below…

FYI: Zayn is wearing a 3.1 Phillip Lim jacket, a Louis Vuitton t-shirt, and AGOLDE jeans.

Also pictured: Zayn heading back to girlfriend Gigi‘s apartment on Monday morning (December 13) in New York City.

    Such a gorgeous boy!, I kinda feel like a dirty old man drooling over this boy lol.

  • Gina

    He looks great as usual, but his story sounds really confusing. Did Taylor reach out or did he ask her? I think he kinda fudged the answer his team constructed for him; poor thing lol. I think the true story is that her team reached out to his team to do a collaboration because Taylor wants to make her image more edgy and grown up. I doubt very much that Zayn and Taylor are friends, and the Gigi mention is an irrelevant PR tool. Anyways, looking forward to the day he gets to collaborate with people he actually wants to collaborate with.

    Definitely an unusual collaboration but it works. Both artists have huge, dedicated fan bases. It was a smart collaboration and I actually like the song.
    I hope JJ also covers other parts of the interview.

  • rilla

    thanks for making sense of that story, I didn’t really understand it, especially considering she wrote on the song and he didn’t. gotta work in Gigi somehow I guess.
    also yeah, I can’t imagine Taylor Swift was his dream collab last year. aside from the $$$ of course, his team must be ecstatic.

  • Khazija

    I really like the song. It was nice to see him doing interviews again. I am glad to hear about him opening about his life more and being comfortable enough to banter with the radio hosts.
