Shawn Mendes didn’t just tease James Corden about his out of date music tastes when he appeared on The Late, Late Show on Wednesday evening (September 28), he also opened up about one day collaborating with One Direction’s Niall Horan.

Corden started the conversation by saying he’d heard a rumor they were working on a duet together. Mendes clarified that there’s nothing yet, but he very much hopes to work with the One Direction-er turned solo artist in the future. “He’s awesome,” Mendes said. “I’ve been talking to him for a long time, but it’s annoying because I’ll in London, I’ll be like ‘Niall, I’m here,’ and he’ll be like ‘Just landed in L.A.’ and vice versa. So, yeah, when we get a second, I want to write with him a bunch, for sure.”

Both pop stars have been busy with their separate careers. Horan is the latest from the boy band to go solo; he premiered his first single “This Town” today (September 29). While Mendes dropped his sophomore studio album Illuminate last week.

Hopefully one day they’ll both land in the same city and they can get to writing.
