Tyler, the Creator Says Zayn Malik ‘Flaked on Studio Sessions Twice,’ Releases ‘Pillowtalk’ Remix

The ever-unpredictable creative Tyler, the Creator revealed on Twitter that this spring, he’d planned to record with Zayn Malik. He also explained why that didn’t pan out.

As a consolation prize, Tyler shared an unmixed re-envisioning of “Pillowtalk” that he made back in February. The song was the lead single from Malik’s debut album Mind of Mine.

Tyler accompanied the redux with a video of him goofing off in his room because he “HAD NO ART TO GO ALONG WITH IT.” Sophomoric humor aside, Tyler’s remix strips “Pillowtalk” of its self-seriousness for an airier (and maybe better?) rendition. Check it out below.
