VIDEO: Zayn Malik Reveals the Story Behind His Taylor Swift Collaboration

Zayn Malik and Taylor Swift just released their hit song “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” and now Zayn is explaining how it happened!

The 23-year-old singer stopped by The Elvis Duran and The Morning Show for a rare interview and spilled the story behind the track.

“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 and a Louis Vuitton t-shirt.
