Then, in 2017, Ed Sheeran revealed that collaborating with Swift involved their song being stashed in a briefcase and flown with a handler for his approval. Getty Images He told Capricho magazine: "I remember when I did a song with Taylor for her album, I was in San Francisco and they sent someone with a locked briefcase with an iPad and one song on it. They flew to San Francisco and played the song I've done with her and asked if I like it. ... I was like, 'Yeah,' and they took it back. That's how I hear it." Porowski also revealed that, although he didn't take any props from the video, Swift did give everyone a gift.
