Taylor Swift Joined By The Weeknd At ‘1989’ Concert: Watch
Three years ago, it would have been impossible to imagine Taylor Swift bringing out The Weeknd during one of her concerts. While Swift was already flirting with pop by working with Max Martin and Shellback for Red tracks like “I Knew You Were Trouble” and “22,” The Weeknd had only just re-released his first three, depraved R&B mixtapes via Trilogy, where perhaps the most accessible track was a faithful “Dirty Diana” cover.
Last night (July 10), however, during her 1989 World Tour concert in East Rutherford, N.J., that’s exactly what Swift did. The Weeknd performed his latest single “Can’t Feel My Face” — a song of his that actually makes you want to dance, and his debut collaboration with Martin, plus fellow pop impresarios Peter Svensson and Ali Payami.
Swift even joined in at the song’s second verse, and after the concert she urged her social media followers to pre-order The Weeknd’s upcoming third album Beauty Behind the Madness, out August 28 on XO/Republic. Following his triple-Platinum single “Earned It (Fifty Shades of Grey),” The Weeknd has never been more accessible than he is right now.
Taylor Swift performs in East Rutherford again tonight, July 11. Watch her bring out The Weeknd below.
