'Fifty Shades Darker' Soundtrack: Taylor Swift & ZAYN Make Angst Look Cool In New Music Video

ZAYN and Taylor Swift's music video for "I Don't Wanna Live Forever" was released early Friday, and it's a dark, sultry affair.

"I Don't Wanna Live Forever" is the first single off the Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack, and the song's music video is fittingly erotic. ZAYN and Swift are mostly separate throughout the video, but they do interact a few times.

"Been sitting eyes wide open behind these four walls, hoping you'd call," ZAYN sings in falsetto at the beginning of the song, "It's just a cruel existence like there's no point hoping at all / Baby, baby, I feel crazy, up all night, all night and every day / Give me something, oh, but you say nothing / What is happening to me?"

Swift has her own response verse, singing, "I'm sitting eyes wide open and I got one thing stuck in my mind / Wondering if I dodged a bullet or just lost the love of my life, oh / Baby, baby, I feel crazy / Up all night, all night and every day / I gave you something, but you gave me nothing /What is happening to me?"

Their voices blend together seamlessly on the song's chorus, in which the singers reveal that they don't want to live forever - they simply want each other to come back home.

This is Swift's first song since 2014's 1989. That album was a massive critical and commercial success, winning the Grammy for Album of the Year and selling over 1.2 million copies in its first week alone.

Meanwhile, ZAYN has been hard at work since leaving One Direction in 2015. His debut single "Pillowtalk" and debut album Mind of Mine both reached no. 1 on the Billboard charts and last year he won the American Music Award for New Artist of the Year.

Fifty Shades Darker will be release in theaters on Feb. 11.
