Brendon Urie Reveals How a Text Led to His Taylor Swift ‘Me!’ Collaboration
It all started with a text.
Ahead of the Billboard Music Awards, Brendon Urie explained to Entertainment Tonight how his collaboration with Taylor Swift, "ME!," came to fruition.
"We were a tour, and I got a text from her," he said. "She texted me and said 'Can I call you?' I said 'Absolutely.' So she sent me over the song and said, 'We need to finish this together. I don't have a bridge, I don't have a couple other parts. I said 'Great.' From that point on, for the rest of the tour, the song was just stuck in my head—it's a beautiful earworm of a song."
"About a month later we met in the studio, finished the song together," he continued. "It happened so organically, it felt so natural, and that's a testament to Taylor's hard work as well. She's just incredible to be around."
Brendon and Taylor will be giving the song its live debut at the BBMAs tomorrow (May 1). He'll also be performing "Hey Look Ma, I Made It" with his band, Panic! At The Disco. The 2019 BBMAs will be hosted by Kelly Clarkson and air live on May 1 at 8 pm ET/PT on NBC.
