An adorable video clip featuring the songstress Taylor Swift and American model Gigi Hadid is doing the rounds on the Internet. People seem to be going gaga over it. The video that was posted on YouTube on Wednesday and has garnered over 123,000 views as of writing.

The “Shake It Off” singer has been making hits since she launched her first album,“Taylor Swift,” in 2006. Despite the glitz she enjoys as pop music princess, she is still not immune to liking her own music. The pop superstar and her BFF were apparently hanging out when the Taylor Swift and Zayn Malik song, “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever,” started playing on the car radio. Revved up to hear her track playing, Swift took her camera out and started filming their own reaction.

The video of 48 seconds has been described as pure magic. It is no less spellbinding to watch Swift and her supermodel friend lip-synching the song she sung herself in collaboration with Hadid’s love interest, Zayn Malik. The song has been featured in the upcoming EL James’ movie sequel, “Fifty Shades Darker.” (Watch the video below.)

According to E! Online, the Taylor Swift and Zayn Malik song is swiftly climbing up the charts. The song currently ranks #5 on US Billboard. Also, a steamy music video of the song "I Don't Wanna Live Forever" was released late January, garnering over 6 million hits already.

Zayn was formerly associated with top UK boy band One Direction. He was part of the band until 2016, when he decided to pursue his own singing career. Malik released a single, “Pillowtalk,” which ranked as Billboard’s #1 on the Hot 100 after its debut in January 2016. Swift has called his voice as one of the rarest in a behind-the-scenes video after the “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” premiere. “I've known Zayn for a really long time,” Taylor said. “I think his voice is one of those that is really rare and I think he's really special and wonderful and it's really, really amazing to get to work together.”

“Fifty Shades Darker” is a sequel to the 2015 erotic romantic drama “Fifty Shades of Grey.” “Who’s That Girl” director James Foley has helmed the film. Niall Leonard, the novel's original author EL James’ husband, wrote the script. Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan return as the much-hyped Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey in theatres soon. Fans can watch it in Australian theatres on Feb. 9.
