UDPATE: TSwift and Zayn have released the accompanying music video for their super steamy "I Don't Wanna Live Forever" collab, and it's absolute perfection. Turn it up, and prepare yourselves for an office dance party.
Just when we were all ready to move past 2016 entirely, Taylor Swift and Zayn Malik give us the surprise collaboration of the year for Fifty Shades Darker, and somehow, we've momentarily forgotten that there is any bad in the world at all.
Was anyone expecting it? Absolutely not. Are we already obsessed? 100 percent yes.
"I Don't Wanna Live Forever," is the first single from the Fifty Shades of Gray sequel as well as the first vocal release for Tay Tay in 2016. Since releasing the straight-fire song just before midnight on Thursday, Tay and Zayn (Tayn?) have quickly gained the attention (and total praise) of the Twittersphere.

The film and soundtrack will be released on February 10, 2017, and considering the song and music video already turn the room up a few degrees, you can most definitely count us in. Download the whole song on iTunes here.
