On Friday, November 12, Taylor Swift revealed her new album “Red (Taylor’s Version).” That same day, “Deadpool” actor Ryan Reynolds debuted his new film “Red Notice” on Netflix.

The Reynolds family has been working with Swift for a long time. Reynolds made a cameo appearance in Swift’s 2019 star-studded music video “You Need To Calm Down.”

Now Reynolds’ wife, actress Blake Lively, is finally getting her chance to collaborate with Swift. She directed, produced, and wrote the music video for Swift’s “I Bet You Think About Me” which is one of the vaulted songs that Swift teased. Although the song had been written back in 2012, it didn’t make it onto the original “Red” album.

Now fans are finally getting to hear the song for the first time, which also features the vocals of Chris Stapleton.

Taylor Swift Teases Music Video For ‘I Bet You Think About Me (Featuring Chris Stapleton)(Taylor’s Version)’

Swift teased the music video on Sunday night by sharing a short snippet of the video. After showing a cake with two slashes in it covered by white frosting, a hand adorned with a red ring grabs a chunk of the cake and rips it out, revealing red velvet cake, of course.

The credits then reveal that the video was written by Swift and Lively, with Lively taking sole credit as director.

Although Swift didn’t direct this video, she already has several directing credits under her belt. She directed “The Man” music video from her 2019 “Lover” album and recently wrote, directed, and starred in the “All Too Well” short film, which featured the performances of Sadie Sink and Dylan O’Brien. Fans had a lot of strong feelings about the film, leaving them both heartbroken and overjoyed at the same time.
