Taylor Swift Teams Up With Childhood Inspiration Jennifer Lopez

When Taylor Swift started to reminisce about her days of singing into a hairbrush during her childhood, no one expected her to actually bring out the artist who inspired her early bedroom performances. At her LA concert in 2013, Taylor shared that she had one special song she always sang into her hairbrush before introducing her guest by saying, “This is my hairbrush song.” Then, shocking everyone, R&B icon Jennifer Lopez appeared at the back of the stage to join Taylor in a special performance.

The two joined together to sing Jennifer Lopez’s classic hit from the early 2000s, ‘Jenny From The Block’. The crowd went wild, cheering, singing along, and recording the performance. For those who weren’t at the concert in person, Taylor uploaded a video of the performance to her YouTube channel. It has gained over 12 million views so far, with fans the world over enjoying the performance as they saw how much fun Taylor and Jennifer were having together as they sang.

Even though the duo’s performance of ‘Jenny From The Block’ was shared online and became popular with fans, there were a number of surprise guest performances on this tour that weren’t shared via the internet. During Taylor’s ‘The Red Tour’ in 2013, she invited a number of popular artists to perform onstage with her as a surprise for fans. These included the likes of Ellie Goulding, Nelly, Ed Sheeran and Fall Out Boy’s Patrick Stump, with whom she would join to sing their hit singles.

One of the musical icons Taylor invited to perform with her was Carly Simon, so that the pair could duet her 70s hit ‘You’re So Vain’. The classic break-up song fit in perfectly with the chart-topping breakup songs Taylor herself had become well known for at the time, such as ‘All Too Well’ and ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’. In the behind-the-scenes video of the performance, Taylor said she thought that Carly’s song was “the best song that had ever been written.”

A commenter on the video for the ‘You’re So Vain’ performance noted the similarities between the two singers, stating, “Only difference between Carly and Taylor is 40 years. Taylor is gonna write lots of classic songs in the future. I just know it.” The commenter’s premonition, of course, came true, with Taylor having gone on to sell over 200 million records and becoming the most-streamed artist on Spotify.

On her 2023 – 2024 ‘Eras Tour’, she has invited only a couple of guest singers to perform – Ice Spice and Gracie Adams. This is an enormous reduction compared to the 21 that appeared on ‘The Red Tour’. However, with so many hits of her own, the time for recreating her hairbrush-singing days may now truly be over.
