It’s always a unique feeling when two musical worlds collapse to create magic. Taylor Swift and Shawn Mendes have collaborated on a brand new remix of “Lover” from Taylor’s 2019 album also titled the same. More than the song itself, we have a feeling Taylor wanted to announce the “collaborashawn” pun to the world. Find?
‘Lover (Remix)’ adds new verses from 21-year-old singer Shawn Mendes. He has also appeared in Taylor Swift’s longtime “Reputation World Tour” concerts to perform the single “There’s Nothing Hold Me Back”. So it’s not entirely surprising that these two artists have come together to give a twist to the already fading song “Lover”.
Taylor Swift took to Twitter to announce the release of “Lover (Remix);” “There’s a new version of ‘Lover’ coming up. A remix, featuring someone that I’m a huge fan of, that I’ve known for a very long time, and someone that I always really want to collaborate with. So drum roll, please. It stars Shawn Mendes. He took “Lover” and rewrote parts of it which is so important because I love him as a writer and also think everyone would write a different love letter to their lover and I think that his point of view is so beautiful. I am so so so excited.

Along with the original lyrics by Taylor Swift, Shawn Mendes adds a new second verse on this remix of the song. In this verse, Shawn Mendes continues with the song’s vanishing theme. An important element in these lyrics is the mention of “dance around the kitchen” by candlelight. This is a direct reference to one of Taylor’s best works “All Too Well”, in which she sings “dancing around the kitchen by the refrigerator light.”
Shawn Mendes also paints a beautiful picture of the timeline of their relationship. Pictures of their youth hung on the walls, of them sitting on the porch and singing to each other at the age of eighty.
In the bridge of “Lover (Remix)”, Shawn Mendes adds a few more lyrics to blend in with Taylor’s. In these lyrics, he sings about how she can be assured of his love just by looking him in the eye. He also brings up the infamous story of the Titanic to profess his love. The RMS Titanic was one of the largest liners built in 1912. It crashed into an iceberg and sank in the North Atlantic Ocean, killing over 1,500 people on board. Director James Cameron turned this story into a film interviewing the love story between Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Rose (Kate Winslet). The film has become an iconic production and a symbol of love and destruction.
It is without a doubt a beautiful creation of Taylor Swift and Shawn Mendes born of their friendship. Who else would you like to see Taylor Swift collaborate with? Leave a comment below.
