Tyler, the Creator is not playing around with this remix of Zayn’s No. 1 single “Pillowtalk.” The Odd Future rapper kicks things off by strumming out some deep chords on his guitar: 

As the song starts going harder, Tyler starts letting loose, eventually letting go of his guitar altogether so that he can dance to the remix. 

By the time the hook comes around, Tyler has lost all control and uses pretty much everything around him as a stage as he sings along to that insane hook of Zayn’s. 

Many might remember that Tyler actually reached out to Zayn to collaborate together back in 2015 after Zayn had left One Direction to pursue a solo career.“HI @zaynmalik I HAVE BEAUTIFUL INSTRUMENTALS AND YOU HAVE A VOICE LETS FIGURE THIS OUT MY GUY . EPIC ALBUM CUTS THO NO RADIO SINGLES,” Tyler tweeted at the time. Zayn seemed happy to team up and tweeted back, “Sounds sick BRO let do some shit.“ 

Unfortunately, the two still haven’t collaborated and it’s because of Zayn bailing on studio sessions, according to Tyler. When someone asked Tyler on Twitter why the two haven’t officially worked on a track together, Tyler responded, "CAUSE THAT NIGGA FLAKED ON STUDIO SESSIONS TWICE.” Recently, Zayn also had to pull out of a scheduled performance due to anxiety.

As for Tyler, he says he recorded this remix back in March and hasn’t mixed the track yet, but had it on his laptop. Considering what Tyler was able to do with Zayn’s song, it’s a shame these two haven’t teamed up together sooner. We can only imagine the music these two could actually make if they got in a studio. For now, check out Tyler’s remix of “Pillowtalk” above. Tyler also noticed that his video was being blocked in some countries, so he got a fan to post the song up on SoundCloud for anyone that wants to hear it.

I literally don’t even know what to do with zayn anymore like I feel like that mom whose teen son has started acting out and landing in the principals office more and more and all she can even say anymore is “I’m not mad I’m just disappointed.”
