Taylor Swift - Post Malone

Taylor Swift recently dropped the music video for her unlikely collaboration with Post Malone, and listeners can’t get enough of it.

Taylor Swift Just Dropped A New Album

Taylor Swift just dropped her eleventh studio album, called The Tortured Poets Department. Swift is one of the biggest artists and one of the most recognized names on the planet. With her dropping a new record, this is always big news, offering fans plenty to dig into.

As soon as the record dropped, Taylor Swift fans went hunting for Easter eggs on the record. Swift has been known to draw a good chunk of songwriting inspiration from her failed relationships in the past. So, not surprisingly, her fans are listening to the new record with finely tuned ears, looking for references to her exes, including Joe Alwyn and more.

Swift Also Collaborated With Post Malone

In addition to digging for clues about Taylor’s exes, one of the other surprises on the new record is a collaboration with Post Malone. On paper, these two industry heavyweights don’t necessarily mesh in terms of style. As longtime Posty fans know, he can do a little bit of everything.

Post Malone is even working on a country album if that tells you anything. Still, many listeners from both camps didn’t expect these two to work together. In many ways, this is the surprise crossover that both fan bases didn’t know they needed. Only a day after dropping on YouTube, the music video for Fortnight already has over 23M views on the platform and counting.

How Did Taylor Swift And Post Malone Become Friends?

Taylor and Post first met backstage at an awards show in 2018. Speaking to Howard Stern, Post Malone later said that he and Swift started hanging out after that initial meeting. He said: “She is genuinely one of the most kind and considerate and a fu***** hell of a songwriter. Holy sh** amazing.”

Post Malone is even friends with Taylor Swift’s boyfriend, Travis Kelce. So, in many ways, it’s fitting that he and Taylor officially worked together on a song. The fact that they have mutual respect for each other as artists and as friends clearly comes across in their collaboration, and listeners love it.
