Taylor Swift fans in Houston, Texas got quite the surprise during her 1989 show in their city on Sept. 9! After a few shows without a special guest, the singer welcomed Wiz Khalifa to the stage, and their performance of ‘See You Again’ was the BEST. Watch here!
This might be Taylor Swift’s greatest collaboration yet! She hit the stage for her 1989 tour in Houston on Sept. 9, and excitedly had Wiz Khalifa, 28, join her as a special guest. The duo teamed up to sing his Furious 7 song “See You Again,” with Tay filling in on Charlie Puth’s verses — and, seriously, she’s never sounded better!
Before announcing who her guest would be, Taylor, as usual, teased the audience, telling them she had one of her ‘favorite artists’ in the house for a special surprise. “You know already that I’m obsessed with this artist,” she said. “He is so incredibly talented and when he came out a few years ago, it was undeniable. He sounded unlike anyone else, he’s known for being a good guy, a good person, and having incredible music. One of the songs that he has put out most recently became one of the most meaningful, gigantic hit songs of 2014 and 2015.”
From there, the 25-year-old didn’t even make a point to announce who she was bringing out, because she started singing “See You Again” — which you can buy here — and that’s all she needed to say. As she finished the first verse, Wiz arrived on stage, the two shared an amazingly sweet hug, and he went into his rap.
Okay, can we just discuss Taylor hitting those high notes?! More than with any guest she’s had with her on tour so far, this time she really seemed to want to nail it and do the song justice. Of course, the song is super meaningful, as it was written after Paul Walker’s death for the Fast & Furious franchise, so we don’t blame her for not wanting to mess it up.
And ALSO, can we talk about how cute Tay and Wiz were together? Their hugs were so adorable! “One of the sweetest and most talented people I have ever met,” the “Bad Blood” singer captioned a photo of her and the rapper embracing. LOVE!
