People have tried mashing up Beyoncé and Taylor Swift in the past, but those efforts have often yielded pretty dreadful results. This time, however, things went pretty well.
Some beautiful soul decided to take Tay’s “Out of the Woods,” from her new album 1989, and Bey’s “XO,” from last year’s self-titled surprise album, and blend them together for this unexpectedly lovely mashup. It features the beat from “Out of the Woods” paired with Bey’s vocals — so no, sadly, Tay doesn’t sing at all, but it’s okay. Tay has had plenty of time to shine this week.
