Rodrigo and Gray kicked things off by expertly recreating Swift’s iconic music video for “You Belong With Me.” As the rerecorded version of the track played, Rodrigo, dressed in nerdy clothes, held up a sign that reads, “Conan, you OK?,” which is a direct reference to Swift’s original music video.
“No b**ch, I’m listening to the ‘Fearless’ re-records,” Gray’s sign read in response.
The cute clip continued with Rodrigo and Gray singing into hair brushes as they jumped and danced on a bed.
Swift was a fan of the clip, writing on Twitter, “You ok? NO cause I sent my two kids @Olivia_Rodrigo and @conangray my new version of You Belong With Me and THEY ARE SO CUTE IT PHYSICALLY HURTS ME.”
“ily mom,” Rodrigo replied on her Instagram Story, with Gray agreeing on his, writing “we love our mom.”
The pair continued their Fearless (Taylor’s Version) promotion with a looser interpretation of Swift’s track, “White Horse.” Both sporting cowboy hats, Rodrigo and Gray act on the song’s devastating lyrics, with Gray offering Rodrigo a crown, sweeping her off her feet and leading her up a stairwell.
“we got a sneak peak of white horse (taylor’s version) and we just had to make this vid lol,” Rodrigo captioned the clip. “one of my fav songs of all time. remix this and sing along!”
Swift reposted the clip on her Instagram Story, writing, “Sobs in yee haw.”
On top of Rodrigo and Gray’s promotion, Swift enlisted multiple sources to tease her rerecorded album.
She shared a sneak peek of “Breathe,” featuring Colbie Caillat, on Tumblr, and had her fan page’s official Twitter account post a snippet of “Hey Stephen.” Additionally, on Thursday’s Good Morning America, Swift shared a short clip of the album’s title track.
Though many clips of Swift’s rerecorded songs are out there now, the only one she’s released in full is “Love Story.” She did, however, share two “from the vault” songs, “You All Over Me”, which featured Maren Morris, and “Mr. Perfectly Fine,” which many believe to be about her ex, Joe Jonas.
The rerecorded album will feature four more “from the vault” songs — “We Were Happy,” “Don’t You,” “Bye Bye Baby,” and “That’s When,” featuring Keith Urban — all of which were written at the same time as the other Fearless tunes, when Swift was between 16 and 18.
The singer previously explained that the new-to-fans six tracks were “held back” from the 2008 album for “different reasons,” all of which “seem unnecessary” now.
Fearless (Taylor’s Version) is the first of five albums Swift is set to release rerecordings of, following her highly publicized feud with Big Machine Label Group’s Scooter Braun and Scott Borchetta over her original master recordings.
Fearless (Taylor’s Version) will be released Friday, April 9.
