Fans Beg Taylor Swift For A ‘1989 (Taylor’s Version)’ Collaboration
Other fans had their fingers crossed for a collaboration with “Love Story” singer Taylor Swift, who is currently re-recording all of her old albums.
“Really crossing my fingers for a Taylor Swift & Carly Rae Jepsen- 1989 (Taylor’s Version) from the vault track!” one fan wrote.
“Where is the 10 minute version of Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepsen?” another fan asked, alluding to the legendary 10-minute track of “All Too Well” that Swift finally released on “Red (Taylor’s Version).”
Another shared, “if taylor and carly rae jepsen never collab at some point it will be one of the biggest missed opportunities in music history.”
“Hi @taylorswift13 please collab with carly rae jepsen for 1989 tv !!!!!” another asked.
“where was carly rae jepsen for a message in a bottle collab I’m SO SERIOUS,” said one fan.
“Message in a Bottle” is one of the vaulted tracks that never made it onto the original “Red” album when it first debuted in 2012. Fans are calling the song a “bop” due to its upbeat tempo and catchy chorus.
Even in the comments of the lyric video, people can’t stop comparing the song to Jepsen’s signature sound.
“HEAR ME OUT, I can totally imagine Carly Rae Jepsen singing this song with her!!! (Kinda reminds me of her Emotion era),” one fan wrote.
“I am soooo glad that I wasn’t the only one thinking this!!” another shared.
“Totally, in some moment i though about ‘Cut to the feeling’!!” said one fan. “Hear us MS Taylor, we need an collab with Carly Rae on 1989 tv!!”
Another wrote, “That’s exactly how I would describe this song and have been to anyone who will listen to me gush about Taylor’s music.”
With Swift collaborating with more and more artists on her re-recorded albums, it’s possible that Swift and Jepsen may collaborate on a future project and make their fans’ “Wildest Dreams” come true.
