Kendrick Lamar and Taylor Swift are officially taking their friendship to the next level: Kendrick Lamar will appear in Swift's all-star "Bad Blood" video. (Rumors that there will be a remix featuring Lamar currently remain unfounded.)

As she has been doing for the last few days, Swift made the announcement by posting a character shot of Lamar from the video on her Twitter. "Meet Welvin Da Great," she captioned the picture.

The Lamar announcement follows news that Swift Squad members Lena Dunham, Hailee Steinfeld, Hayley Williams, Zendaya, and others will also appear in the must-view music video.
