The pop stars’ respective acoustic spins on “I Don’t Want to Live Forever” are a far cry from the song’s glitzy video. For a second, it seems like they could just be normal sad people instead of ridiculously rich and famous sad people, Joinfo.com reports with reference to Mashable.
Swift takes a break from the despair for a moment to smile for the camera as she rehearses for her pre-Super Bowl concert in Houston. Zayn’s video, appropriately, is a minimalist black and white studio video with lots of filters and plenty of room for his signature falsetto to breathe.
Swift also shared a cute video of herself and and bestie Gigi Hadid (Zayn’s real life leading lady) flipping out and lip syncing as they hear the song on the radio for the first time.
