09 August 2016, 16:58 | Written by Bobby Rathore

Zayn Malik will feature on M.I.A.'s track "Freedun" which came about after Malik requested her to write music for his solo debut.

A.I.M. is an album of collaborations between M.I.A. and many prolific artists including Skrillex, Diplo and now Zayn Malik.

It was revealed in an interview earlier this week that Malik appears on the track with M.I.A. adding that the collaboration was worked on remotely, via WhatsApp.

M.I.A. told EW:“We have the same publishers and they wanted me to demo some songs for Zayn...I really wanted to write a song for Zayn….We had a couple people in common. And that’s how it came about. I didn’t really approach him for my own record until later on. First, I thought I wanted to try writing a song for him.”

A.I.M is out on 9 September via Interscope Records.
