Last week, we shared a brief history of the unexpected (but undeniable) respect and adoration between Taylor Swift and Kendrick Lamar.
Now, we have something concrete that consummates the relationship: a mashup of her “Shake It Off” and his “Backseat Freestyle.” (If this is confusing to you, note that Taylor shared a video of her lip-synching to “Backseat Freestyle” and then Kendrick went ahead and freestyled over the “Shake It Off” beat.)
We have the mashup specialists known as The Hood Internet, who clearly sensed a collective itch that really needed to be scratched, to thank for creating this masterpiece.
The best part of this is that we know both K.Dot and Tay-Tay are totally on board with being mashed up with each other.
