"I Don't Wanna Live Forever" will feature in the sequel to the "Fifty Shades of Grey" film, based on the hugely successful erotic trilogy by E.L. James.
Grammy Award-winning Swift told her fans of the collaboration on Instagram, posting a picture of what appeared to be the single cover and a message reading "Z T 50". She also added a video snippet of the song.
Malik, who quit the chart-topping boy band One Direction last year, posted a picture of himself with Swift with the hashtag #idontwannaliveforever.
"Fifty Shades Darker", starring Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, is scheduled for release in February.
