All hail the Queen of the North.
In a post to her Instagram stories, Turner, who is married to Joe Jonas, shared a clip of the song and tagged Swift. “It’s not NOT a bop,” she captioned the snap. Swift later shared Turner’s post on her own stories, writing back, “Forever bending the knee to the 👑 of the north.”
The hilarious interaction between the two could be a response to speculation that “Mr. Perfectly Fine” is about Jonas. He and Swift dated briefly in 2008, just before the release of her second album, Fearless. “Mr. Perfectly Fine,” about a former lover who moved on quickly, is a previously unreleased song from this era.
In announcing the release of the track, which is one of six previously unheard “from the vault” songs going on her newly re-recorded album Fearless (Taylor’s Version), Swift seemed to cheekily hint at the coming speculation. “Me in 2020: life is chill, writing songs based in fiction to avoid drama, feeling pretty grown up. My 2008 music from the vault, in a goblin voice: ‘REELEEEEEEASE MR PERFECTLY FIIIIIIINE,'” the pop star tweeted after the song’s release.
Fearless (Taylor’s Version) and the rest of the vault songs release on Friday.
