“Shout out to Taylor Swift,” Kendrick, 27, told Fader.com in an interview, since Taylor has publicly admitted she’s a huge fan of his. “You can’t put great music in different genres. I enjoy great music outside of my own music all the time, so I definitely can see where she’s coming from when she says that she listens to the record, and it’s a great thing for her to acknowledge that and put that good energy out into the world like that.”

But, it still gets better! Later that day, Taylor posted a video of herself sitting in her car, totally rocking out and singing Kendrick’s song, “Backseat Freestyle.” She captioned the video, “Industry experts predicted 1989 would sell 650k first week. You went and bought 1.287 million albums. AND IT’S GOT ME LIKE.”
