Tyler, The Creator is a potent collaborator.
Through his visual and production work the Odd Future lynchpin has worked with a host of artists, continually throwing himself into fresh arenas.
Now, if social media is to be believed, Tyler wants to work with erstwhile One Direction member Zayn Malik. The 22 year-old singer has inked a solo deal, with Malik stating his desire to make "real music".
Tweeting to the pop idol, Tyler wrote: "Hi @zaynmalik, I have beautiful instrumentals and you have a voice lets figure this out my guy. Epic album cuts tho no radio singles".
Zayn has yet to reply.
