“Baby, this is what you came for.”
Over the weekend, Taylor Swift sang at the F1 US Grand Prix in Austin, Texas and it was her first concert of 2016 as well as public appearance after her break up with British beau Tom Hiddleston. To fans’ surprise, the singer-songwriter performed ex Calvin Harris’ hit song, “This Is What You Came For” featuring Rihanna.
Seated at a bedazzled piano, Tay Tay sang the song that she co-wrote with the Scottish producer under a pseudonym called Nils Sjöberg.
“I’ve never played this song live before. But if you know it, maybe you could sing along, and then I could get to know what that feels like to hear it sung back to me,” she said to a crowd of 80,000.
Let’s just say, fans went wild as the “Shake It Off” singer wowed the crowd with comeback. Well played Tay Tay, well played.

Besides that, the blonde beauty, who released her self-titled album on 24th October 2006, reflected on her decade in the music business.
“It’s been about 10 years since my first album came out when I was 16. And since then, I felt like I’ve been opening up my journal and letting you read it. And it’s so amazing to know that 10 years later, you still feel like reading it, and you still feel like coming out and being here tonight,” she said.
