Ex-One Directioner Zayn Malik has won many over with his solo material, counting some unlikely people in the game (including Frank Ocean’s producer) as fans. Tyler, the Creator showed his support last year when he reached out to the singer for a potential collaboration. Though that collaboration hasn’t come to fruition yet, we now have something just as good.
Posted to his YouTube earlier today, Tyler shared his remix of Malik’s massive hit, “Pillowtalk.” The accompanying visuals feature the rapper dancing uninhibitedly (he filmed himself dancing because he apparently had no art for it) and showing off his Golf Wang merchandise. Tyler’s take on “Pillow Talk” is more upbeat, with added drums and synths that turn the slow burner into an infectious jam. The final seconds of the remix, though, are when Tyler really puts his signature on it as the production turns hypnotic and fades out.
Earlier this month, Tyler, the Creator’s Golf Wang clothing company, which has been around since 2011, had its first fashion show in Los Angeles as part of Made LA.
Watch Tyler, the Creator dance to “Pillowtalk” above, and may the remix inspire you to dance as he does.
