1989 (Taylor’s Version) is just around the corner with its release on October 27. Though the 1989 era is mostly known for its beach aesthetic, many Swifties associate this album with Taylor Swift’s relationship with Harry Styles. The pair dated for a few months back in 2012 and fans still feel nostalgic over this relationship. Though Swift and Styles’ break-up shattered many Swifties’ hearts, it gave us iconic songs such as “Out of the Woods” and of course, “Style.”
Now, it seems like Swift and Styles are cordial with each other, especially after they were seen talking at the 2021 and 2023 Grammy Awards. With them appearing to be on good terms, could we be getting a Swift and Styles collaboration some time soon?
As we all know, Swift likes to plan things out years in advance and with 1989 (Taylor’s Version) almost here, fans are convinced that the album’s song “Style” will feature the “Adore You” singer’s vocals. This theory began making its way through the internet around the time Swift featured her ex, Taylor Lautner, in the “I Can See You” music video in July 2023.
Since the singer reunited with Launter, fans began to speculate that she could join forces with other exes she’s on good terms with for future re-records. Around the time of the “I Can See You” music video release, an A.I cover of “Style (Taylor’s Version)” featuring Harry Styles quickly went viral, causing fans to hope that this feature will be included on the upcoming album.
There have also been plenty of TikToks about easter eggs that hint at this “Style (Taylor’s Version).” @Swwiftxgracielaus posted a TikTok on June 6 that pointed out that Swift’s choreography during “Style” on the Eras Tour was similar to Style’s dance moves during his live shows.
Unfortunately, the tracklist for 1989 (Taylor’s Version) doesn’t mention any features, which has some believing the album won’t include a collab between Swift and Styles.
Whether or not you believe the theory that we’re getting a Styles and Swift duet on “Style (Taylor’s Version),” Swifties can’t wait for the release of 1989 (Taylor’s Version). Who knows? Maybe one day Swift and Styles will do a duet and Haylors will get what they’ve wanted for so long.
Either way, I’m excited to hear this new version, regardless if it includes Styles or not.
