Everyone please take a moment to imagine how iconic it would be if Shawn Mendes and Taylor Swift recorded a song together.

Well, dreams are coming true because the two just teamed up for a brand new duet, and fans are seriously freaking out over it.
On Wednesday, November 13, the 29-year-old “Look What You Made Me Do” songstress released a remix of her hit song “Lover,” and get this — it featured Shawn! Wow, talk about a dream team.
“Well guys it finally happened: WE DID A COLLABORASHAWN. Sending out a whole entire THANKS BUDDY to @ShawnMendes right now — I’m so stoked that our remix of ‘Lover’ is out NOW!” the singer wrote on Twitter, alongside a video of her talking about the epic collab.

“Hey guys, I wanted to tell you about something I’m really excited about. There is a new version of ‘Lover’ coming. A remix featuring someone who I am such a huge fan of who I’ve known for a really long time, and someone who I’ve always really been dying to collaborate with,” she said in the vid. “Drum roll please… It is featuring Shawn Mendes! He has taken ‘Lover’ and he has rewritten parts of it, which I think is so important because I love him as a writer. And I also think that everybody would write a different love letter to their lover. I think his take on it is so beautiful, I can’t wait for you to hear it. I’m so, so, so excited about this and I hope you are too. I hope you like it.”

The 21-year-old “In My Blood” crooner also took to Twitter, writing, “Thank you @taylorswift13 for letting me join you on such a beautiful song. ‘Lover’ remix is out now.”
“We could light a bunch of candles and dance around the kitchen, baby. Pictures of when we were young would hang on the wall,” Shawn sings in his new verse. “We would sit on the stoop. I’ll sing love songs to you when we’re 80. See I finally got you now, honey, I won’t let you fall.”
Wow, hearing their beautiful voices together is seriously a blessing! As fans know, the two stars’ friendship dates way back. For those who forgot, the Canadian cutie actually opened up for Taylor on her 1989 World Tour, and they’ve been close ever since.
BRB, going to listen to the “Lover” remix on repeat!
