Whoa, Taylor Swift Says Her Ears Were "Blessed" by This Singer's Impressive "Betty" Cover
ICYMI, Taylor Swift dropped her surprise eighth studio album, Folklore, on July 24, and one listener was so in love with the album's 14th track that she needed Swift to hear about it ASAP. On July 27, singer-songwriter Maisie Peters shared an angelic piano cover of "Betty" on Twitter, and the minute-long video has definitely left us wanting more.
"It's important @taylorswift13 knows that i would die for betty [sic]," Peters captioned the tweet. Fans of the singer were quick to leave praise-filled comments on the video, but one fan's comment, in particular, stood out among the rest. "My ears have been blessed on this fine Tuesday," Swift wrote a day after the video was posted, praising Peters for her stunning cover and incredible musical talent.
"You heard the rumours from Inez / You can't believe a word she says / Most times, but this time it was true / The worst thing that I ever did / Was what I did to you," Peters sang over the beautiful melody of the piano in the background. Our fingers are crossed that Swift will invite Peters to collab with her on a full song cover from the Folklore album (maybe "Cardigan"?) sometime soon. In the meantime, please allow your ears to be blessed by Peters's full "Betty" cover here.
