We’re getting closer to finally seeing the music video for Taylor Swift and Zayn Malik’s 50 Shades Darker duet “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever.”
In celebration of Zayn’s birthday on January 13, the duo released a blue-hued image from the music video. There wasn’t much info as far as a plot or context, but just seeing the two superstars standing back to back in a shot was enough to get us excited for the ballad’s video.
This morning the duet partners gave fans a sneak peek at the new video, which Swift promises on her Instagram page is ‘coming soon.’ How soon? How about tomorrow!
Following this morning’s new screen shot, Swift posted a video teaser of the new music video. Taking notes from the film, the pair seem to be filling the roles of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. Malik can be seen exiting an expensive sports car before angrily breaking dishes in a bedroom, while Swift wanders through a mansion and writhes on a bed. It’s officially getting hot in herre. Swift captions the teaser video with, “Video tomorrow night midnight est.”
Swift and Malik surprised fans with the ballad on December 9, with the two hitting the studio with producer Jack Antonoff, who Swift collaborated with on her 2015 album 1989.
Swift and Malik will be in good company when the Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack drops on February 10. In addition to their new single, 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—additions that have quickly made Fifty Shades Darker one of the most highly anticipated soundtracks of the year (click here for the full list of soundtracks to get excited for in 2017).

Singer Halsey, who previously wrote and performed the single “Castle” for The Huntsman: Winter’s War, has also released her new single for 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.”
Fifty Shades Darker hits theatres on February 10.
