Zayn Malik wants to make ''awesome music'' with Zendaya.

The 18-year-old singer has caught the attention of the former One Direction star, 22, who apparently wants to work with her musically because he digs her sound and he particularly ''really likes'' her single 'Replay', according to reports.

A source said: ''Recording together is most likely -- he really likes 'Replay,' as well as her sound, and would like to see if they could create some awesome music together.''

The British heartthrob apparently thinks they should work in the studio because of their ''similar R&B vibe''.

A source previously told The Sun newspaper: ''He [Zayn] said they should get in the studio together as they both have a similar R&B vibe, and he's been talking about fashion as she's in London working with Vivienne Westwood.''

However, it's not just her vocals he is taken with, Zayn who recently dumped his Little Mix fiancé Perrie Edwards by text, also thinks the Disney actress is ''stunning'' and ''loves how intelligent she is for her age.

The source told Hollywood Life: ''He thinks that she is stunning. He loves that she is very smart and her maturity for her age is off the charts. She really is a cool girl, and he really respects the person that she is.''
