It's safe to say that Zayn Mailk is killing it with his first single away from 1D. The music video, in which he gets pretty hands on with new girlfriend, Gigi Hadid, has had over 70 million views in just a few weeks - but they're not the first real life lovers to star in a video together.

Read on for some of the best (and worst) video collaborations that we've seen over the years and, more importantly, find out whether the sparks continued to fly or fizzled out off set.

1. Surfboard - Cody Simpson and Gigi Hadid

Gigi is pretty experienced when it comes to her boyfriends' music videos. Not only did she star in this one with former flame Cody Simpson, she also sat in the director's chair for recent ex Joe Jonas and his new band, DNCE. See how she did with the Cake By The Ocean video here.

2. Bound 2 - Kanye West and Kim Kardashian

This super steamy offering from Kimye is pretty risqué (and let's be honest, completely impractical). I don't think anybody would have guessed that three years later, these two would be happily married with two children.

3. Burnin Up - Nick Jonas and Selena Gomez

2008 saw a divide between tweens everywhere: Team Miley or Team Selena? Nick Jonas wasted no time in showing us where his loyalties lay by featuring Selena in this video. Sadly, the romance was short-lived and they broke up two years later.

Fun fact: Wondering why Joe's love interest looks familiar? She's a total lookalike of his then girlfriend Taylor Swift, who was unavailable for filming at the time.

4. All Of Me - John Legend and Chrissy Teigen

Mr & Mrs Legend were together for six years before he penned this song about her in 2013, the year they got married. They actually met on the set of his music video for Stereo in 2007.

5. Say Ok - Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens

Oh, Zanessa. Every High School Musical lover's OTP starred in this video together during V's short-lived solo career. Devastatingly, these two didn't live up to the great expectations set by Gabriella and Troy - they split in 2010.

6. Crazy In Love - Jay Z and Beyoncé

A classic. Thirteen years, seven collaborations and one baby later, this power couple are still going strong.

7. Haven't Met You Yet - Michael Bublé and Luisana Lopilato

Funnily enough, Michael wrote this song about finding 'The One' when he and Luisana had only just started dating. Seven years on, the couple are happily married with a little boy and another on the way.

Fun fact: This isn't the first time Michael has filmed a video with a girlfriend. His ex-fiancee Debbie Timuss provided the inspiration and starred in the video for his breakout single, 'Home'.

8. Jenny From The Block - Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez

Here's a blast from the past. J. Lo and Ben Affleck - or 'Bennifer' - were the power couple of 2002. Alas, their love did not last and they split in 2004.

9. Lost Without U - Robin Thicke and Paula Patton

Back before that picture surfaced on Instagram, it looked like these high school sweethearts would last forever. Unfortunately, Robin's playboy antics proved to be too much for Paula, who filed for divorce in 2014.
