Taylor Swift has shared a new music video for her “Karma” remix featuring Ice Spice. Directed by Swift herself, the video places the pop star in a variety of unusual locations: inside a lightbulb, trapped in an hourglass, atop a Wizard of Oz-themed storybook with a yellow brick road. She’s later joined by Ice Spice and the two lasso planets together, row in a boat across an ocean, and serenade one another as the mountains (Swift) and the clouds (Ice Spice). Watch it below.
Last night, Swift brought out Ice Spice during her headlining show in East Rutherford, New Jersey for the live debut their “Karma” remix. The Eras Tour is still marching ahead this summer, hopefully without security interfering with fans, with shows still to come in Chicago, Pittsburgh, Minneapolis, Denver, Seattle, and more.
The deluxe version of Midnights featuring this “Karma” remix, an extended version of “Snow on the Beach” with more Lana Del Rey vocals, and the Target CD bonus song “Hits Different” came out yesterday (May 26). It’s appropriately titled Midnights (The Til Dawn Edition). Swift’s next planned release, Speak Now (Taylor’s Version), will arrive on July 7.
This remix is the latest rollout in a breakout year for Ice Spice. Following the success of last year’s single “Munch (Feelin’ U),” she has been climbing the radio charts with her PinkPantheress collaboration “Boy’s a Liar, Pt. 2.” Ice Spice is also set to appear on the Barbie soundtrack alongside Nicki Minaj on “Barbie World.”
