When you hear a new album, it's inevitable that you're going to have a favorite song. Well, that also seems to be the case for Ed Sheeran and Lorde regarding Taylor Swift's new album 1989. These two, among many of Swift's famous friends, were lucky enough to preview her album before its release this past Sunday. (How jealous are all of you Swifties?) Of course, the singer wanted their input, including which song they love the most.
While visiting On Air With Ryan Seacrest (for her four-hour takeover), Swift revealed that when writing a song for 1989, she would get so excited she couldn't wait to play it for Sheeran and get his input. Eventually, he formed a strong relationship with one song in particular, "Bad Blood."
Sheeran fell in love with the song and even asked Swift to make it her first single. Swift explained, "I played it for Ed as soon as I wrote it, which I think was about a year ago. And at that point, it was just a really basic demo track ... and he was going, 'This has to be the first single! This has to be the first single!' And I was like, 'Eh, we'll see.' But since he's now heard the album and heard the final track, he loves it even more."
Sheeran isnt' the only one of Swift's besties who has a favorite song, as Lorde (or as Swift calls her, "Ella") said she loves "Style." Swift shared, "My friend Ella, Lorde, I played her 'Style' as we were driving down the PCH and we were going to lunch in Malibu. I said, 'Hey, I just finished this thing, can I play it for you?' And I remember when that beat drops in the intro of the song, she was just like, 'Yeahhhhh!'"
Even Swift's other BFF's, including Karlie Kloss and Lena Dunham, jammed to the album before its release. So, raise your hand if you want to be Swift's best friend. Not only would you be labeled as her "BFF," but you could also listen to all her music and give her upfront critiques. Wow, what a privilege. To be so honest and open, that's what supportive friends are all about.
Swift agrees and said "it's so cool to have friends who are so supportive... I feel so lucky."
