We’re shocked too.


Tyler, The Creator unexpectedly sent Zayn Malik a collaboration request yesterday and it looks like it’s happening.

To the world’s surprise, the Odd Future rapper tweeted the singer to arrange a studio session, saying “HI @zaynmalik I HAVE BEAUTIFUL INSTRUMENTALS AND YOU HAVE A VOICE LETS FIGURE THIS OUT MY GUY . EPIC ALBUM CUTS THO NO RADIO SINGLES.”

After signing a deal with RCA, the former One Direction star has been busy in the studio working on his solo debut, notably with Tyler’s pal Frank Ocean’s producer – most likely the reason that the unlikely request was made.

As we know, the 22-year-old’s solo material will deliver something more urban than the pop-rock sound of the band that he was never really into, so it didn’t take long for him to get back to Tyler with a very enthusiastic reply.

And there you have it: pop’s most interesting collaboration that we never knew we wanted so badly, arranged over Twitter. Ah, 2015.

Zayn is coming to ****** Urbaney’s crown.
