Zayn
Pillowtalk (Tyler, The Creator Remix)

Label: RCA   Genre: Remix   Sounds Like: Troye Sivan

Bet you didn’t see this one coming. In a bizarre new video, Tyler, The Creator plays electric guitar and performs a dramatic interpretive dance in what looks like someone’s room to his remix of Zayn Malik’s “Pillowtalk,” all the while clad in entirely in bright yellow Golf Wang merchandise, because of course he does.

“I HAD NO ART TO GO ALONG WITH THIS SO I RECORDED MYSELF DANCING TO IT,” the video description reads.

In a characteristic all-caps Twitter rant, Tyler claims he hasn’t directly collaborated with the ex-One Direction star because Zayn “flaked on studio sessions twice.” It’s unclear when the remix was recorded: while Tyler tweeted that it was made in March, the video description instead mentions February. Regardless, we can’t lie—the track bangs. Tyler’s unmixed version kicks the pop hit up a notch with a funky, twinkling beat, though his uninhibited dancing is arguably the best part.

Make sure you tune in to the video below while you can: ”THEY MIGHT TAKE THIS DOWN,” Tyler adds. Apparently, the vid is already blocked in some countries, though it’s since been uploaded to SoundCloud.
