Finally! After what has felt like a 37-year hiatus, Taylor Swift is teasing her Zayn Malik collaboration video for “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever.”
Because, y’know, we needed some halfway decent news this week.
Swift took to Instagram Wednesday morning to debut a still from the video, which was filmed in London and reportedly will feature the two megastars trashing a £2,500 hotel room.
None of that is evident in the still, which just shows Taylor looking sultry — with a man who is probably Malik standing right behind her — amidst a whole lot of red light. Which is pretty on point given the “Red Room of Pain” from Fifty Shades Darker, the film on whose soundtrack the song appears.
Obviously, given that it’s been more than two years since Swift released 1989, fans are champing at the bit for new material, and hopefully “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” will satisfy their itch. 1989 led to a whole gaggle of creatively impressive, award-winning videos — with “Blank Space” being the clear highlight — so Swift is reentering the game with a whole lot of expectations for greatness.
We’re quite sure she’ll somehow manage to deliver.
