AceShowbiz - Taylor Swift ditches Zayn Malik on a stripped-down version of their chart-topping collaborative track "I Don't Wanna Live Forever" off "Fifty Shades Darker" soundtrack. While rehearsing for DIRECTV NOW Super Saturday Night, the "Bad Blood" hitmaker gave a solo acoustic performance of the song.
In a clip she posted on YouTube, Swift keeps her look casual for the rehearsal as she wears a tight turtle neck paired with red pants. The camera looks at her from below as she stands in front of a mic in the studio. She sings her way through the first verse, which on the record belongs to Malik. In one scene, she leans down to sing the lyrics straight into the camera.
Swift is clearly a big fan of her collaboration with Malik. On Wednesday, February 1, Swift uploaded a short clip on YouTube which showed her and her model pal Gigi Hadid going crazy when listening to the song on the radio.
On the same day, T-Swizzle shared a behind-the-scenes clip of the song's accompanying video, which was shot in London. In one scene, she tells fans that she shot most of her solo scenes early in the morning.
"We're in London. It's earlier than I care to really even say," Swift says in the clip. "We're starting to shoot the video for 'I Don't Wanna Live Forever'. And I'm first because clearly I don't demand late enough call times because Zayn's asleep somewhere in London, I imagine, under some kind of silk duvet."
