Taylor Swift And B.o.B Give Us A Slice Of Nashville Living In “Both Of Us” Video

From what we saw in the behind-the-scenes clip for “Both of Us,” you might think the video would feature giant insects of all shapes and sizes attacking poor B.o.B and Taylor Swift. Alas, the clip gives us a slice of Nashville living that includes much less fear, Raid, and squashing than we were led to believe. Instead, it’s a look at day-to-day life in the South, with plenty of random Americana — playing fetch with dogs, shooting pool, walking along railroad tracks. The Jake Nava-directed visuals perfectly complement the beautiful blend of rap and lush melody on the chorus. Though now that we know about all those bugs, maybe things aren’t as peaceful as they look.
