Covering a Taylor Swift song can have an immediate, profound effect on an artist’s career. When Vance Joy covered a Swift song, his profile went meteoric and she invited him on tour. The outcome of the latest Swift cover, however, is a little less sure.
Black Simon and Garfunkel were guests on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where they answered a request from the “Audience Suggestion Box”. For their deed, they sung a version of Swift’s “Bad Blood” which they mashed-up with the Simon & Garfunkel classic “The Boxer”. Whether Black Simon & Garfunkel (they’re actually The Roots’ Questlove and “Captain” Kirk Douglas) get a call-up to support Taylor on tour is anyone’s guess. Check out the clip below.
