Taylor Swift and Ice Spice are joining forces for an exciting collaboration, but the announcement comes in the wake of insults directed at the rapper by Swift’s boyfriend, Matty Healy, TMZ learns.

In a social media post, Swift shared her admiration for Ice Spice, describing her as a brilliant artist and declaring that their collaboration, Karma, will be featured on the deluxe edition of Swift’s upcoming album, Midnights (Til Dawn Edition). While the announcement didn’t mention a music video, an image accompanying the reveal hints at the possibility.

The controversy surrounding Matty Healy stems from his appearance on The Adam Friedland Show in February. During the interview, Healy, Friedland, and Nick Mullen made racist comments about the Munch rapper while also mocking Chinese and Hawaiian accents. Although the episode was later removed from various platforms, it resurfaced online, along with a separate clip of Ice expressing her love for Healy’s band, The 1975.

Healy issued an apology last month for his offensive remarks, but some fans felt the apology was inadequate. Meanwhile, Swift and Healy have been inseparable since news of her breakup with longtime boyfriend Joe Alwyn.

Notably, Taylor and Ice Spice have already shared a special moment together when Ice Spice introduced Swift’s “Song of the Year” win for “Anti-Hero” at the iHeart Awards in March. The two artists also posed for photos together.

Despite the controversy, Swift and Ice Spice’s collaboration promises to be an exciting musical endeavor. Fans eagerly await the release of their single, which showcases the combined talents of two remarkable artists.
