Fans at Swift’s upcoming New Jersey stadium show tonight (Friday May 26) will have the first opportunity to buy physical copies of ‘Midnights (Til Dawn Edition)’.
In a final tweet, the 33-year-old said: “For those of you going to the East Rutherford shows – we will have a new special edition CD available ONLY on site starting at 12:30 pm ET on Friday! This CD will have a never before heard ‘Midnights’ ‘Vault’ track called ‘You’re Losing Me’!”
‘Karma (Remix)’ is the latest in a long line of high-profile collaborations. In February, she and Bath-born star PinkPantheress went viral with ‘Boy’s A Liar Pt. 2’. After that, Nicki Minaj hopped on the ‘Princess Diana’ remix with the Bronx star, and last week Katy Perry expressed her interest to collaborate with the ‘Munch’ rapper whilst being interviewed by Buzzfeed.
Meanwhile, this week saw Steve Nicks thank Taylor Swift for penning ‘You’re On Your Own, Kid’ as it captured her feelings after losing late Fleetwood Mac bandmate Christine McVie.
Elsewhere, Ice Spice’s song ‘Like’ was leaked, but the rapper claimed the track was a “throw-away” from her debut EP, ‘Like…?”
