Watch Taylor Swift and Zayn's Smoldering Video for 'Fifty Shades Darker' Song
The slick new clip, which dropped at midnight, studies the two pop superstars who are living it large but torn-up from separation. It's a tale of emptiness, loneliness and longing, framed in a twilight world which clearly takes style pointers from the Fifty Shades of Grey franchise its connected to.
The video opens with the former One Direction singer stepping out a limo in the rain as paparazzi chase him through a plush hotel. We observe as both Zayn and Taylor face their demons with serious looks, booze and hotel-room frenzies.
"I Don't Wanna Live Forever," which will appear on the Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack, currently sits at No. 8 on the Billboard Hot 100 (dated Feb. 4), two spots shy of its peak when it debuted at No. 6 on the chart dated Dec. 31.
The track dropped without fanfare last December and also reached No. 16 in Zayn’s homeland, the U.K., and No. 3 in Australia.
The song was written specifically for the feature film by Swift, Jack Antonoff & Sam Dew and produced by Antonoff.
The much-anticipated Fifty Shades Darker sequel is scheduled to hits theaters Feb. 10. The soundtrack will arrive the same day through Republic Records.
