This HAS to happen

In what could be the greatest musical hook up since Lil Kim and Christina Aguilera, people seem to think that Justin Bieber and Zayn Malik are collaborating. This would be even bigger than Taylor Swift and Zayn Malik's single for Fifty Shades Darker, right?

Last week, Zayn Malik shared the first single from his upcoming second album. The track, titled Still Got Time is a collaboration with OVO rapper PARTYNEXTDDOOR, and has been giving us serious song of the summer vibes.

The track came as the singer celebrated the second anniversary of his exit from One Direction, and one year since the release of his debut album, Mind of Mine, which spawned the hits Pillowtalk and Like I Would.

Well, there’s now speculation that Zayn Malik will be teaming up with Justin Bieber, and it’s the stuff that dreams are made of.

According to a report from The Sun, both Zayn and Justin are fans of each other’s music, with the latter complimenting Zayn’s new single on social media over the weekend.

'Justin has been really complimentary of Zayn’s new music and there have been tentative discussions about them working on something together,' a source told the paper. 'They are in touch and chatting about all sorts and getting on like a house on fire – Justin even retweeted a link to Zayn’s single on his Twitter which he doesn’t just do for anyone.

'It would be a huge collaboration if it happened so watch this space.'

We actually LOVE this idea. To be honest, we think that the Biebs and Zayn together on one song would be EPIC. Given that they’re two of the biggest male singers out there at the moment, it’d be a proper musical event.
