To celebrate Zayn Malik’s birthday yesterday, his latest duet partner Taylor Swift shared an image from their upcoming music video.
Swift returned to the recording studio to work on the new track “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” with Malik and producer Jack Antonoff for the upcoming Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack.
Swift and Malik surprised fans with the ballad on December 9, and it looks like a music video isn’t far off. Writing “Happy Z Day,” Swift posted the blue-tinged image to her Instagram page yesterday, showing the profile of both singers. The image is most likely a still from the duo’s music video, and while no release date has been announced, yesterday’s new pic means we’re likely not too far from a music video debut.
Swift and Malik will be in good company when the Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack drops on February 10. In addition to their new single “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever,” the album will also feature new music from John Legend, Corinne Bailey Rae, Sia, Tove Lo, Kygo, John Legend and even a Nicki Minaj and Nick Jonas collaboration. Jonas tweeted the tracklisting yesterday, promising the upcoming soundtrack will be perfect ‘baby making’ music.

Singer Halsey, who previously wrote and performed the single “Castle” for The Huntsman: Winter’s War, just dropped her contribution to the Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack with the ominous and sultry “Not Afraid Anymore.”
Taking cues from the book trilogies sexually explicit content, Halsey sings, “I am not ashamed anymore / I want something so impure / You better impress now / watching my dress now, fall to the floor.” AKA baby making music.
