AceShowbiz - Zayn Malik has finally confirmed rumors of him collaborating with Nicki Minaj one year after it started spreading online. Without revealing the title of the song, the British singer shared a snippet of the highly-anticipated collaboration on Tuesday, November 13.
Instead of his voice, fans are offered to heavy synth and deep bass melodies in the eight-second clip. Nicki ends the short clip by saying her catchphrase, "Young Money." In the caption, Zayn announced that he would be releasing the untitled song on Thursday, November 15. Mark your calendar, guys!

Fans are obviously excited after listening to the snippet, considering that the rumors have been going on for a really long time. The post has been retweeted for more than five thousand times and viewed for over 150 thousand times. "I LOST MY S**T AS SOON AS I HEARD YOUNG MONEY," one excited fan exclaimed in all caps. Another similarly couldn't contain his/her excitement over the snippet, writing, "FINALLY ZAYN AND NICKI COLLAB IS COMING THURSDAY!!!!!!"
Rumors of their collaboration first sparked in March 2017 after a Zayn song titled "TBC" featuring Nicki appeared on the playlist of Capital FM's website. One fan then claimed that she had already heard the song at a meet-and-greet for the release of his PARTYNEXTDOOR-assisted single "Still Got Time".
Nicki fueled the rumor when she released "Bed" featuring Ariana Grande earlier this year. She gave a shout out to the former One Direction member on the song, rapping, "Could put Zayn on it, but I put your name on it." Fans were freaking out at the time, getting more convinced that a collaboration between the two would be coming for sure.
Even though the title of the song still remains unknown, it's safe to say that it will be included on Zayn's much-anticipated sophomore album that still doesn't have a title or release date.
