Taylor Swift is gearing up to release her new album Lover with a secret listening party at her house and a select group of fans. Swift’s first listening party took place in London on Friday, where fans got to learn that the upcoming album features a collab with both Selena Gomez and Katy Perry.
According to a Taylor Swift fan account, one of the party attendees revealed that Swift’s new album includes a song with Perry and Gomez about “women empowerment.” The women have come a long way since the 1989 era, which included the song “Bad Blood,” about Swift’s less-than-stellar relationship with Perry.
However, Swift and Perry’s friendship has been on the up for a while now. Perry recently made an appearance in Swift’s music video for “You Need to Calm Down” and Swift has even opened up about their private road to reconciliation saying, “We didn’t know if we were ever gonna really tell people about it. We wanted to make sure that was solid between us before we ever made the public aware.”
“I sent [the request] to her and she was like, ‘I would love for us to be a symbol of redemption and forgiveness,’” Swift told BBC 1 about asking Perry to be in the music video. “And I feel the same way about it.”
Fans also revealed that Swift made desserts for the party and that her favorite song of all time is on the album. She also has Le Labo’s Santo 26 candles and Jo Malone hand soap in her home, which is important to know.
