Taylor Swift Thanks Kendrick Lamar, Diane Warren & More for Making Her Wildest Dreams Come True With ‘1989’ Re-Record

From The Eras Tour to a gratitude tour: Taylor Swift just dropped her latest re-recorded album, 1989 (Taylor’s Version), and in all her social media activity since Friday’s release, she’s been thanking everyone who made her wildest dreams come true.

She started out by thanking Kendrick Lamar for re-recording his “Bad Blood” remix verse, and then she thanked her “precocious young son” Jack Antonoff for their first collaboration (2013’s “Sweeter Than Fiction,” which is now a bonus track on one of the 1989 vinyl variants). Finally, songwriter Diane Warren shared the bouquet of flowers and sweet note Swift sent her way for their “From the Vault” track “Say Don’t Go.”
