Two of the world's biggest pop crooners may be giving fans the collab they've been asking for.

Niall Horan took to Twitter on Monday (Jan. 21) to respond to a fan wondering if he'll team up for a song with Shawn Mendes. The "Slow Hands" singer simply responded, "We're going to try." 

"We ARE going to," Mendes added, to which Horan confirmed, "Let's do it then."   

Horan's former One Direction band mate Liam Payne also chimed in, feeling a bit excluded. "Can I play the triangle?" he asked. The Niall and Mendes Army soon blew up the Twittersphere with excitement over the potential collaboration. See below for Liam's tweet, as well as some fan reactions.
