AMP Music Minute: Jay-Z, Kanye Add Watch The Throne Tour Dates, Taylor Swift Picks Her Fav Duet And Drake’s Album Gets Real (page 2)
It can be argued at this point that [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Taylor Swift[/lastfm]’s current Speak Now tour is way more pop and hip-hop than country music. It seems every time she hits another city not only would she perform a medley of her acoustic versions of pop hits, but more often then not she’d just bring out the original artist and perform it with them!
[photogallerylink id=46087 align=left]So with so many duets, someone thought to ask which one was the best or was she most surprised by. With contenders like [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Justin Beiber[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Nicki Minaj[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”] Usher[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Nelly[/lastfm], we knew the competition was stiff.
Turns out the King of The South is also the King of Taylor Swift Duets, that’s right performing with [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]T.I. [/lastfm]had Taylor feeling the most butterflies.
Just days after being released from State custody, Tip got a call from Taylor, “Well, I called T.I. the night before the show, so I felt like it’s such short notice that [he wouldn’t do it with me], and he’s just like, ‘Hey, yeah, sure,’ “ she recalled.
“And it was just amazing. I was so excited ’cause I’m such a fan and I thought, ‘This is such short notice, this is so ridiculous’ that I’m asking him to do this the night before. And he’s like, ‘I’ll be there,’ ” she continued. “And he showed up for sound check and we were all just so star-struck.”
The two performed “Live Your Life” in front of a packed Atlanta arena. Being the hip-hop head that Taylor is, this moment probably will stay with her for quite a while, “I’m a huge hip-hop fan, and it’s been so amazing to have so many incredible artists come out and to get to sing the hooks on their songs that I’ve been blasting in my car for the last couple years,” Taylor continued, “It’s been awesome. I couldn’t have asked for more amazing special guests on this tour, and we’re not finished yet.”
Who could be next? [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Chris Brown[/lastfm]? [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Lil Wayne[/lastfm]? [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]B.o.B.[/lastfm]? I’m so curious! Just tell us, Taylor. You know we will find out sooner or later!
Sounds like a real love story… “Love Story” By Taylor Swift
