It may be Friday, but Taylor Swift’s latest track is no flashback. Yep, that’s right- Taylor has finally released new music and she’s brought along her good pal, Zayn Malik. Swifties rejoice!
Singers Taylor and Zayn just dropped their latest collaboration for the ever so raunchy and sexy film, Fifty Shades Darker. Entitled “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever,” the song is the first one Taylor’s released since her 2014 Grammy-winning album, 1989. Although Taylor has had her writing credits all over some of the year’s biggest tracks (including Calvin Harris and Rihanna’s “This Is What You Came For,” and and Little Big Town’s “Better Man”), her addition to the film’s soundtrack makes this Taylor’s first official record in two years. Not to mention, their mutual shadiness toward One Direction’s Harry Styles as Swift’s ex-boyfriend and Zayn’s former bandmate, makes this a pretty epic collab.
Both Zayn and Taylor took to Instagram to announce the news of their hot duet, with Zayn posting a cute candid of him and Taylor:
While the singer herself actually shared the snippet:
Score! However, despite this being the first Taylor song in years, even Zayn’s added hot vocals couldn’t keep some fans from feeling cold:
Taylor Swift has a new song and it's part of the @FiftyShades film. I don't know how I feel about this.

Others, on the other hand, were here for Team “Tay,” the new moniker for Taylor and Zayn, coined by super fans.

Either way, looks like the fans win this one. Within just a couple of hours, “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever,” became the number one song on iTunes. Winning!
