More on Taylor Swift and Brendon Urie
Last week, Swift fans were speculating that Panic! At The Disco frontman Urie might be on Swift’s new song well before “ME!” dropped.
Swift finally confirmed the title and Urie’s collab on ABC in an interview with Robin Roberts, and dropped the “ME!” video is later that evening.
After hours of intense clue-dropping online and in Nashville with a butterfly mural, Swift headed to the 2019 NFL Draft. Once there, she revealed what fans had been guessing, which is Urie joined her for the new track and video dropping at midnight EST.

In the same interview, Swift opened up about the meaning behind the new track.
“‘ME!’ is a song about embracing your individuality and really celebrating it and owning it,” she explains. “With a pop song, we have the ability to get a melody stuck in people’s heads, and I just want it to be one that makes them feel better about themselves.”
