Taylor Swift & Beck Mashed Up
Listen to a slightly unsettling mash-up of Tay's latest single and Beck's new hit "Dreams."

It looks like Taylor Swift binge-watched a bunch of famous love stories before coming up with (or signing off on) the “Wildest Dreams” video treatment. Directed by Joseph Kahn, who also helmed “Blank Space” and “Bad Blood,” the big-budget visual pays homage to classic cinema romances like Out Of Africa, The English Patient and The Notebook. And while Tay Tay and Scott Eastwood don’t have the chemistry of Meryl Streep and Robert Redford, for example, it all hangs together rather nicely.

The African scenery, in particular, raises this above your average video. It will be interesting to see if “Wildest Dreams” can snatch that VEVO record from “Bad Blood.” There isn’t an endless stream of celebrity cameos to get fingers clicking this time around, but Tay’s latest is a much stronger effort. The 25-year-old has already landed three number one hits from 1989. Could this be her fourth?
