Labrinth co-wrote 'I'm Tired' with Zendaya for season two of her HBO show, 'Euphoria'. The full version of the song was released in February last year along with a lyric video. 

That video has been watched more than 25-million times on YouTube.

Zendaya and Labrinth also sang their Emmy Award-winning song, 'All Of Us', at Coachella. The song featured in season one of 'Euphoria'. 

Zendaya was overwhelmed by the response her Coachella performance received.

"I just wanted to say thank you again for such a magical beautiful night," she wrote on her Instagram Stories. The 26-year-old's appearance was reportedly a last-minute thing.

"Thank you to my brother @labrinth for inviting me and giving me the most beautiful safe space to be on a stage again. And to the crowd tonight...wow... my heart is so full, I can't thank you enough for the love I received tonight, made all my nerves melt away, I'm so grateful.”
