Zayn Malik’s solo career has barely taken off, but he’s getting offers from hopeful collaborators like Odd Future rapper Tyler, The Creator.

Tyler, whose Australian tour was just canceled after a visa ban campaign, invited Malik to get into the studio to make “epic album cuts tho no radio singles.”

Yes please, said fans who love unlikely duos (ahem Skrillex/ Justin Bieber). Malik responded by writing, “Sounds sick.” Because it does.

Malik signed with RCA in July, a few months after he left One Direction, and collaborating with Tyler, The Creator wouldn’t be that far off from what we’ve seen of his solo attempts so far. Though he hasn’t officially released any music, leaked clips of him covering Rae Sremmurd’s “No Type” showed he’s down to try just about anything.
