When you sat down to watch X-Factor in 2010 with your Domino's pizza and family size bottle of Coke, did you ever think a member of the Cowell molded power-pop troupe One Direction would collaborate with outspoken rapper Tyler, The Creator?
No, neither did we.
Probably understandably so, as at the time Tyler was dropping albums like 'Bastard', which feature the sort of tunes Cowell would probably play to his a waste disposal chute whilst whistling sardonically. But Twitter has spoken and played host to a weird go-between ex-1D member Zayn Malik and Tyler himself.
HI @zaynmalik I HAVE BEAUTIFUL INSTRUMENTALS AND YOU HAVE A VOICE LETS FIGURE THIS OUT MY GUY . EPIC ALBUM CUTS THO NO RADIO SINGLES

Tyler's got some free time now as his tour Down Under has been cancelled, plus with the 'radio singles' pop cuffs clean off Zayn, we're keen to see how things unfold between these two unlikely bed buddies.
