Taylor Swift expressed her admiration for Kendrick Lamar in an interview with Rolling Stone earlier this year. According to Taylor, her go-to song when she wants to feel awesome is K Dot's "Backstreet Freestyle".
When Kendrick was asked what he thought about Taylor's love for his music, he was thrilled. "Some people always try to lock it down and categorize it for one particular listener," he told AP. "But it moves all, even people from other genres. I appreciate Taylor Swift for supporting not only my music but just the hip-hop culture… It's music and it feels good."
Mutual love, understanding, and respect! We dig that.
We know Taylor's favorite Kendrick song is "Backstreet Freestyle", but what's Kendrick's favorite Taylor song?
"Shake It Off".
In a recent interview with The FADER, Kendrick shouted out Tay Tay and even sung his own little rendition of her hit single.
He means what he says, and says what he means. This guy LOVES "Shake It Off".
Taylor responded to Kendrick's cover by lip-syncing (you guessed it!) "Backstreet Freestyle".
A bit awkward, but cute, nonetheless. She really wasn't joking when she said she knew every word to the song.
Can we foresee a collaboration in the near future?
