There’s nothing like being able to be proud of your boyfriend AND best friend all at once — and that’s exactly what Gigi Hadid gets to do this week thanks to Zayn Malik and Taylor Swift. The supermodel could not be happier that her man and bestie collaborated on a new song. Check out her reaction here!
The world is freaking out over Taylor Swift, 26, and Zayn Malik’s collaboration for 50 Shades Darker, and that includes Gigi Hadid, 21. After the song was released on the evening of Dec. 8, the 21-year-old took to Twitter to promote the new music, and she added the happy face/praising emoji to show just how excited she is about it!
Taylor and Zayn shocked everyone when they dropped “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” out of nowhere late Thursday, and the song certainly did not disappoint. Remember when we saw Tay hanging out with 50 Shades star, Dakota Johnson, Johnson, back in October? It’s kind of all making sense now! The gals have a mutual friend in Cara Delevingne, 24, but we can imagine they also discussed their new connection through their music/movie during the outing.
50 Shades Darker comes out on Feb. 10, and “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” was specifically written for the movie by Taylor, Jack Antonoff and Sam Dew. Jack actually revealed on Twitter that the whole process was super “quick,” and that it only took a week to put the song together. Tay actually recorded the vocals at the producer’s studio, while Zayn sent his parts over from Los Angeles. Pretty incredible, huh!?
Unsurprisingly, fans wasted no time buying the track and getting it to No. 1 on iTunes — it held the top spot within an hour of its release. And, yes, we’re STILL listening to it on repeat!
HollywoodLifers, what do you think of Taylor and Zayn’s song? Do you think Gigi set up the collaboration?
