“Fun fact,” Tyler said on Twitter. “I wrote ‘see you again’ for zayn but that bitch flaked on studio time twice, so i kept the ref for myself, worked out actually.”
Tyler, 26, released “See You Again,” which features Colombian-American singer Kali Uchis, in July on his critically acclaimed fourth album, Flower Boy.
Although Tyler had been heavily criticized because some of his earlier releases used anti-gay slurs, Flower Boy contained some verses which suggested he had been with men in the past.
The former One Direction member has also released new music this summer.
