It’s been a couple of years since we’ve heard new material from the world’s mega-pop star Taylor Swift. After joining forces with pop’s bad boy, ZAYN, she lends her vocals to a new song for the Fifty Shades Trilogy, entitled, “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever.”
Like The Weeknd before them, ZAYN and Swift have performed a powerful and romantic ballad as a soundtrack to Fifty Shades Darker, the sequel to the original film. The duet is everything we could have expected from the two singers. ZAYN, the once upon a time member of boy-band One Direction, flaunts his perfect falsetto, and tender lyricism. Swift’s airy vocals and classic relationship-driven material mesh well with the song. Her appearance also hints at a return to centre stage. Should we expect more releases from Swift in the new year? We’ll have to stay tuned to find out.
If you’re a fan of the Fifty Shades trilogy, you can catch this flick in theatres on Valentines Day, 2017.
