Los Angeles: Pop star Taylor Swift has praised Zayn Malik’s talent following the recording of their new duet.
The 27-year-old singer opened up about her feelings towards Malik in a behind-the-scenes clip which was filmed as they made the music video for their Fifty Shades Darker duet, “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever.”
The pair released the highly-anticipated track on Thursday and Swift shared the unseen footage on Instagram, reported E! online.
“I think his voice is one of those that’s really rare and I think he’s really special and wonderful and it’s really amazing to work together,” she said of the former One Direction singer in the video.
Swift added that she was already friends with Malik before the shoot, because he is dating one of her best friends, supermodel Gigi Hadid.
“It’s amazing when you get to work with people that you hang out with. The question of ‘Will we get along?’ is already answered.”
The “Shake It Off” hitmaker then described the 24-year-old singer as an incredible talent, and gushed about those involved in the duet, which will appear in the soundtrack of “Fifty Shades Darker”, starring Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan.
“I feel really lucky to get to do this song that I’m really proud of with him. Everybody involved has been amazing.
