Kendrick Lamar returned to the studio to re-record his verse on the remix of Taylor Swift’s ”Bad Blood” for the deluxe version of her newly-released album, 1989 (Taylor’s Version).

Swift took to Instagram to share her gratitude for Lamar’s contribution. “Watching @kendricklamar create and record his verses on the ‘Bad Blood’ remix was one of the most inspiring experiences of my life,” she wrote under an image of the duo at the original recording session. “I still look back on this collaboration with so much pride and gratitude, for the ways Kendrick elevated the song and the way he treats everyone around him. Every time the crowds on The Eras Tour would chant his line ‘you forgive, you forget, but you never let it… go!’, I smiled.”

“The reality that Kendrick would go back in and re-record ‘Bad Blood’ so that I could reclaim and own this work I’m so proud of is surreal and bewildering to me,” Swift continued. “I’m overjoyed to say that the ‘Bad Blood Remix (featuring Kendrick Lamar)’ is available everywhere on the 1989 Deluxe Edition.”

1989 (Taylor’s Version) is the latest album to come from Swift’s string of re-recorded records in her pursuit to fully own all of her masters. Taylor’s Version also arrived with five “From the Vault” songs, including “Slut!,” “Say Don’t Go,” “Now That We Don’t Talk,” “Suburban Legends” and “Is It Over Now?”
