Mark Ronson’s Got ‘Folklore’ Jokes and Taylor Swift Is All For It

Taylor Swift took to social media on Wednesday (July 29) to react to a Folklore joke posted by none other than Mark Ronson.

The clip shared by the famed producer shows the two stars deep in conversation at the 2016 Grammys — the year Swift took home her most recent album of the year win for 1989. “Taylor actually telling me about #folklore back in 2016. On tape. Crazy,” Ronson jokingly captioned the video, which is dubbed over with fake dialogue of Swift revealing she was working on “that ‘Bloodbuzz Ohio’ s–t” with The National’s Aaron Dessner.

Naturally, the viral tweet caught the eye of Swift herself, who quickly proved she was in on the joke. “Thank you for keeping the secret til now,” she replied, retweeting Ronson’s doctored video with several laugh-crying and prayer hand emojis.

As one of Swift’s newest collaborators, Dessner co-produced 11 of Folklore’s 16 indie-leaning tracks, including first single “Cardigan” as well as album highlights like “The 1,” “The Last Great American Dynasty” and “Invisible String.” Meanwhile, Ronson has teamed up with Lady Gaga multiple times in recent years, producing both her 2016 album Joanne and the 2018 soundtrack to A Star Is Born.

Released as a surprise on Friday (July 24), Folklore has already become the best-selling album of 2020, moving more than 500,000 units in just three days. Less than a week after dropping the album, Swift also doubled down on lead single “Cardigan,” releasing a “Cabin in Candlelight” edition of the cozy track featuring new instrumentation and an alternative music video.
