Celebrity·Posted on Apr 9, 2021The Official Ranking Of Taylor Swift's Collaborations By How Hard They Hit Me In The Feelings"Safe and Sound" hits every time.by Stacey NguyenBuzzFeed ContributorFacebookPinterestTwitterMailLink We know that Taylor Swift is a lover, but she's also a genius collaborator who's done a ton of duets over the years. Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF Big Machine Records / Via giphy.com Obviously, she's also collaborated with Jack Antonoff, Aaron Dessner, Elvira Anderfjärd, and Joe Alwyn, but we're specifically referring to vocal duets here. Her rerecording of Fearless comes in strong with extra collabs from country superstars Keith Urban and Maren Morris, who give us all of the feelings. View this photo on Instagram @taylorswift / Via instagram.com Let's revisit all of her collaborations over the years, ranking them down to the very best of the best. Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF NBC / Via giphy.com (Before any fellow Swifties come at me, know that I enjoy her duets! Most of them are good, but there are gems that will make me dance or curl up in a fetal position every time!) 26. “Me!” feat. Brendon Urie Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF Republic Records / Via giphy.com “Me!” is a fine song — it's a bright, fun, and peppy self-love anthem where Brendon Urie's vocals hold up. But it does give off back-to-school commercial vibes, and Taylor can go to deeper places emotionally. 25. “Should've Said No” feat. the Jonas Brothers Kevin Mazur / WireImage / Via Getty Images The Jonas Brothers brought Taylor to their 3D Concert Experience in the early aughts, and they all sang Taylor's "Should've Said No" together! Unfortunately, the live audio isn't super crisp (for obvious reasons), and Taylor and the JoBros have really upped their vocal games since this performance. 24. "Everything Has Changed" feat. Ed Sheeran Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF Big Machine Records / Via giphy.com The "I just wanna know you better, know you better, know you better now" parts are fun to hum! Basically, it's a simple love ballad that also feels like it could be played in a Target Valentine's Day commercial. Which is OK, but it does lean a little saccharine sweet if you're not in the mood to listen to it. 23. “End Game” feat. Ed Sheeran and Future Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF Big Machine Records / Via giphy.com Taylor's foray into pop rap was met with mixed reviews. My personal verdict is that it's OK — sonically, I'm not sure if Taylor's, Ed's, and Future’s voices mesh together. But as Taylor sings, "We tried to forget it but we just couldn't." 22. “Coney Island” feat. the National Republic Records / Via youtube.com Honestly, Taylor and Matt Berninger's vocals sound great with the production. But the song lacks the emotional dynamics that Taylor's other songs have and doesn't really stand out on Evermore. 21. “Both of Us” by B.o.B. feat. Taylor Swift Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF Grand Hustle Records / Via rebloggy.com I'm not quite sure where I stand on Taylor — a very wealthy celebrity singing about poverty — but her emotive vocals in the chorus, to her credit, complement B.o.B.'s verses. 20. "Bad Blood" feat. Kendrick Lamar Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF Big Machine Records / Via gifer.com Is this a bop? Sure. But lyrics such as "Band-Aids don't fix bullet holes" and "You made a really deep cut" don't quite showcase Taylor’s chops as a songwriter and lean more into her past feud with Katy Perry. Kendrick’s punchy verses do give the song more flair, though. 19. “Half of My Heart” by John Mayer feat. Taylor Swift Patrick McMullan / Patrick McMullan via Getty Images I don't want to stan John Mayer, but "Half of My Heart" is a solid song. Taylor's harmonies work, and the heartbreak theme is a sweet spot for both of these artists. 18. “Lover” feat. Shawn Mendes Kevin Mazur / Getty Images This remix is really pretty, especially with the plucky string sounds! Shawn Mendes throws in new lyrics about dancing in candlelight and going down with the Titanic — the added lines are kinda cheesy, but this *is* a love ballad. 17. “Two Is Better Than One” by Boys Like Girls feat. Taylor Swift Theo Wargo / WireImage / Via Getty Image Taylor and Martin Johnson's harmonies are lovely in "Two Is Better Than One," and her standalone parts add a sweetness to the song too. The song will definitely make you nostalgic for 2009’s skinny jeans and Vans. 16. “Highway Don't Care” by Tim McGraw feat. Taylor Swift and Keith Urban Christopher Polk / Getty Images No, Tim McGraw did not write back a song called “Taylor Swift.” But this is the catchiest song you’ll ever hear about road safety, and Keith Urban delightfully shreds the guitar here. 15. "We Were Happy" feat. Keith Urban Chris Polk / Getty Images It's such a stripped-down but emotionally impactful song from the vault — with bonus background vocals from Keith! 14. "Breathe" feat. Colbie Caillat Jeff Kravitz / FilmMagic / Via Getty Images “It’s 2 a.m. feeling like I just lost a friend” will never not be an iconic Taylor bridge! The only critique I have is that I wish I could hear Colbie Caillat more! 13. “Evermore” feat. Bon Iver Republic Record / Via youtube.com “Evermore” is a depressing lullaby with the vaguest hint of hope toward the end, where Taylor sings, “I had a feeling so peculiar that this pain wouldn’t be for evermore.” The minimal piano tinkling allows Taylor’s lyrics to shine, and Bon Iver's voice pairs nicely with Taylor's — even if he comes in late in the song. 12. "That's When" feat. Keith Urban George Pimentel / Via Getty Images The production definitely gives off Folklore vibes — Keith and Taylor sound great together! And tbh, the lyrics are flexible enough to make this song relatable whether you're breaking up, taking a break, or bumping into an ex. 11. “Cowboy Like Me” feat. Marcus Mumford Republic Records / Via youtube.com Yes, that's Marcus Mumford from Mumford & Sons doing the background vocals! "Cowboy Like Me” is a soft song that doesn't stand out very much on Evermore, but it's a hidden gem with its beautiful imagery and complex lyrics. Can she trust her fellow cowboy? I want to know! 10. "I Don't Wanna Live Forever" feat. Zayn Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF Big Machine Records / Via giphy.com This might be Taylor's most ~sexy~ song before she went all out with "Dress" on Reputation. Taylor sounds great here, but the highlight here is Zayn's gorgeous falsetto. 9. “No Body, No Crime” feat. Haim View this photo on Instagram @haimtheband / Via instagram.com Inspired by country ballads such as "Before He Cheats" and "Goodbye Earl," "No Body, No Crime" captures Taylor's love for the true crime genre! It's campy, it's fun, and it mentions Olive Garden! 8. “Long Live” feat. Paula Fernandes Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF Big Machine Records / Via gfycat.com This rendition of “Long Live” is vastly underappreciated. It features warm vocals and Portuguese verses from recording artist Paula Fernandes for a live-version album of Speak Now. 7. "Babe" by Sugarland feat. Taylor Swift Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF Big Machine Records / Via dailyswiftgifs.tumblr.com Penned by Taylor and the lead singer of Train, "Babe" gets a twangy country powerhouse rendition by Jennifer Nettles. 6. “You All Over Me” feat. Maren Morris Jeff Kravitz / FilmMagic for iHeartMedia / Via Getty Images With pretty fiddle instrumentals, “You All Over Me” marks Taylor’s return to country pop after her folksy endeavors on Folklore and Evermore. Maren's backup vocals add a rich layer to the song, and the introspective chorus will make you want to put on a pair of cowboy boots and slow-dance. 5. "Exile" feat. Bon Iver Disney+ / Via youtube.com I think I've seen this film before, but I don't care because I love an emotionally eviscerating Taylor breakup song. As the kids might say, "Exile" is a vibe. To be specific, it's a dreary vibe that's made cinematic by the contrast between Taylor's and Bon Ivers' voices layering on top of the sad piano sounds. 4. "The Last Time" feat. Gary Lightbody Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF Big Machine Records / Via giphy.com Gary Lightbody, the lead singer of Snow Patrol, joins forces with Taylor here for a beautifully complex precursor to “Exile," although the song is a bit more dramatic than the Bon Iver duet. The strings give the song a really nice cinematic feel. 3. "Gasoline" by Haim feat. Taylor Swift View this photo on Instagram @taylorswift / Via instagram.com Full of sadness and, well, horniness, “Gasoline” is a pretty dang great song on its own, but Taylor’s emotive vocals add a welcome layer of frustration and tension. 2. "Soon You'll Get Better" feat. the Chicks Christopher Polk / Via Getty Images Addressing her mother's cancer battle, the stripped-down country ballad "Soon You'll Get Better" crystallizes Taylor's artistry at its best. The emotionally raw song is full of haunting imagery, and the Chicks' backup vocals make it an even more powerful song. 1. "Safe and Sound" feat. the Civil Wars Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF Big Machine Records / Via gfycat.com “Safe and Sound” is proto-Folklore magic — Taylor's even walking through the woods in a prairie dress in the music video! Officially written for The Hunger Games, it highlights the prettiest parts of Taylor’s voice, which complements her singing partners'. Which is your go-to Taylor Swift collab?
