Grammy-winning country star Taylor Swift showed off her hip-hop love over the weekend by bringing out Grand Hustle's B.o.B. for a surprise performance in Texas.
During her Lone Star State set, Bobby Ray came out to perform his "Airplanes" single.
Taylor Swift is earning her street cred one show at a time. The country sweetheart has already shared the mic with Nicki Minaj, Usher, and T.I., and last night, T. Swift brought out B.o.B during her "Speak Now" concert at Cowboys Stadium in Dallas, Texas. Bobby Ray surprised thousands of concertgoers when he jumped on stage to perform his hit single "Airplanes," with Taylor singing Hayley Williams' part. (Rap-Up)
Following the performance, Swift hopped on Twitter to give post-set reactions.
"Tonight was like a dream. That crowd.. The biggest indoor stadium in the world. And singing 'Airplanes' with B.O.B. !!!!! (@bobatl)," she tweeted October 9th. (Taylor Swift's Twitter)
Last week, Swift recruited B.o.B.'s Grand Hustle boss T.I. for a surprise appearance in Atlanta.
Rapper T.I. has joined country star Taylor Swift in a surprise duet at her concert in Atlanta. Toward the end of Swift's set on Sunday night, she introduced T.I. by singing the opening chorus of his hit song "Live Your Life." The packed house at Philips Arena screamed once he stepped onstage for the unannounced appearance and started to rap. The two Grammy winners stood side-by-side as he rapped and she sang a vocal part originally handled by Rihanna. The Sunday show was a makeup performance for a postponed July show. (Chicago Sun-Times)
No stranger to hip-hop, the country star showed off her love for the genre last summer.
Even if Eminem's lyrics are saying something like "I love you," he raps it in such an angry way that any affection is pretty lost. That's the way Eminem is, we know, but sometimes we would like to hear a softer side to his songs--and now we can! Cutie-patootie Taylor Swift decided to take out her inner thug and cover the hit song "Lose Yourself" during her show in Grand Rapids, Mich., but the gangster vibe didn't really last... T.Swift punctuated her performance with a random "Yo!" here and there, but that's about as street as the country crooner can get. Still, Taylor strumming her guitar as she half-raps, half-sings the lyrics is an adorable sight to see. It's also probably the nicest Eminem song we'll ever hear. (E! Online)
