When his Australian tour was cancelled last year Tyler, The Creator had some time on his hands, so he reached out through twitter to Zayn.
“HI @zaynmalik I HAVE BEAUTIFUL INSTRUMENTALS AND YOU HAVE A VOICE LETS FIGURE THIS OUT MY GUY. EPIC ALBUM CUTS THO NO RADIO SINGLES.”
Malik, who left One Direction to embark on his own solo career, responded to Tyler’s tweet with a message of his own, “Sounds sick BRO let’s do some s—.”
Time has passed and the two have still not worked together. When a fan asked Tyler about the status of a collaboration, the rapper responded that Zayn had flaked on studio sessions, twice.
Undeterred, Tyler cut his own remix of Zayn’s “Pillowtalk,” and made a home video admitting, “I HAD NO ART TO GO ALONG WITH THIS SO I RECORDED MYSELF DANCING TO IT. THEY MIGHT TAKE THIS DOWN.”
Zayn doesn’t seem upset, the tweeted the clip together with a high praise emoji.
