It’s finally here, and it’s everything we wanted! Taylor Swift and Zayn Malik have dropped the video for “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever,” and it’s pretty darn epic.
Taylor and Zayn surprise released their duet, which is taken from the soundtrack for the upcoming movie Fifty Shades Darker, last month (December 9th). Since then, the song has proven quite successful (obvs), despite the fact that it seems like it all came together quite quickly (although, there was enough time for Zayn to get acquainted with Tay’s feline family).
Well, now the FULL music video for “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” has been released and we can’t stop swooning!
The video was shot in London’s historic St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel, the same venue where the Spice Girls shot the “Wannabe” video, fyi, and it’s all moody colors and slow-mo walking as Zayn and Taylor take turns to be splattered with hues of red and blue light.
Zayn opens the track, and we see him walking through a hotel toward an elevator. Then, the camera pans and we’re introduced to Taylor.
The pair then, separately, head to a hotel room (it’s unclear whether it is indeed the same hotel room), where they both have temper tantrums and decide to smash things up (not before Taylor does THIS epic hair flip, however).
Zayn also throws a lamp…
While Taylor breaks a mirror (doesn’t she know that it’s bad luck!?).
We dread to think what their hotel bill will be like!

“I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” is taken from the soundtrack to the upcoming Fifty Shades sequel, Fifty Shades Darker, which also features new songs from the likes of Halsey, Sia, Tove Lo, and Nick Jonas and Nicki Minaj. The soundtrack is set for release on February 10th, the same day as the film.
