“I Don’t Wanna Live Forever (Fifty Shades Darker)” is a song recorded by English singer Zayn and American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift for the soundtrack to the 2017 film Fifty Shades Darker. It was written by Swift, Sam Dew and Jack Antonoff, and produced by the latter. The single was released on December 9, 2016 by Universal Music Group.
The entire song writing and composition has been thoroughly based on situations of the upcoming film. It is an electro-R&B ballad. On the track, the pair trade “romantic overtures”, while Zayn uses a falsetto on parts of the songs, and Swift ponders what the relationship means.
