Taylor Swift Pulls A Michael Jackson, Records Her Heartbeat For '1989' Track

Taylor Swift recorded her actual heartbeat for her Lana Del Rey-esque song "Wildest Dreams"

Taylor Swift’s actual heartbeat guides the ethereal production on her Lana Del Rey-esque “Wildest Dreams.” Yes, you read that right. Taylor Swift’s recorded her actual heartbeat for the 1989 track. If this sounds a little familiar, it should. King of Pop, Michael Jackson, once recorded his very own pulse for the iconic “Smooth Criminal.”

This behind-the-scenes studio secret hasn’t been officially revealed by Swift, at least not yet. It’s sneakily listed under the production credits in the fine print of her album booklet, nonchalantly crammed between the guitar and strings credits: “Heartbeat - Taylor Swift.”
