Taylor Swift took the music world by surprise toward the end of 2016 by NOT releasing a new album.

This broke the artist’s pattern of coming out with a new record every other year, typically in the fall or winter.

But Swift has gone ahead and made up for this disappointment by teaming up with Zayn Malik for what has to be the hottest music video of 2017.

To date, at least.

Swift and Zayn Malik released the wildly-anticipated visual compilation for their Fifty Shades Darker collaboration, “I Don’t Want to Live Forever," on Friday at midnight sharp.

The unique (and sexy!) video is set during the late-night hours at London’s historic St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel, which was built in 1873 and which is located across from King’s Cross Station.

As you’ll see below, the racy footage follows two lovers in the middle of an intense romance, reminiscent, of course, to the relationship between Fifty Shades characters Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele.

Swift and ex-One Direction members came out with the single itself in December.

The track is featured on the Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack and was written by Swift, Jack Antonoff and Sam Dew specifically for the movie.

Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan will reprise their roles for the sequel, which hits theaters on February 10.
