Taylor Swift and Ice Spice’s “Karma” collab is officially out—and Taylor just revealed exactly how it came to be.
Speaking to Spotify, Taylor explained that “Collaborating with Ice Spice on ‘Karma’ was one of the most natural things. She reached out through her team, just kind of saying ‘hey, you know, Ice has been a big fan of Taylor’s since she was a little kid, we’d love to collaborate if that was ever something that came about.’ And I had been listening to her nonstop, like, getting ready for my tour I was just listening to Ice Spice constantly. So I immediately got her number and said, ‘hey would you want to do your version of ‘Karma,’ do you relate to this?’ And so she jumped in headfirst.”
Taylor added that getting to know Ice has “been so special because I’m blown away by her. She is, in my opinion, she is the one to watch. Just watching her work ethic and how thoughtfully she approaches her career. She’s like my new favorite artist and I’m so honored that she’s on the song.”
Taylor announced the collab on May 24, along with several other updates, writing in part “Um. SO much to tell you. I’m a massive fan of this brilliant artist and after getting to know her I can confirm: she is THE ONE to watch. So delighted to say that Karma Featuring the incredible @icespicee_ will be out TOMORROW night at MIDNIGHT ET as a part of the new Midnights (Til Dawn Edition) deluxe album that you can pre-order now.”
Ice Spice then called Taylor the “sweetest person ever” and dropped a picture of them together on Instagram:
