Tyler, the Creator really loves Twitter. The rapper is no stranger to using the social media platform to voice his frustration at how album numbers are counted, announce his Flower Boy Tour, or respond to controversial remarks he made about his sexuality in an interview, and that's only counting a few recent examples. And now he’s back on Twitter to release a brand new fun fact: he originally wrote "See You Again," a song on his newest album Scum Fuck Flower Boy, for Zayn Malik.
After noticing that "See You Again" has been playing on "a few radio stations," Tyler felt compelled to share that he only recorded the song himself because Zayn failed to show up for studio time more than once. He doesn’t seem too broken up about his decision, though, ending the tweet by admitting that it "worked out actually."

fun fact: 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, The Creator (@tylerthecreator) September 16, 2017
This isn't even the first time that Tyler has admitted that he specifically wrote a song or a verse for another artist that didn't never came to fruition.
After a fan noticed that the vibe of Flower Boy track "Who Dat Boy?" would have been a perfect fit for Schoolboy Q, the TDE rapper himself agreed on Twitter, sending out a slightly intimidating tweet in response.
