This is not the first time the former One Direction member referenced the Grammy winner’s track. Styles made headlines on his 22nd birthday in July 2016 when he tweeted, “I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling 22.”
Swift, 28, released the light-hearted song shortly after she began seeing the “Sign of the Times” singer. The pair briefly dated for a few months in 2012 and both have written songs about the other.
Swift’s left many subtle hints about the “Kiwi” crooner in her 2014 tracks “Style” and “Out of the Woods.” She later confirmed in an interview with Rolling Stone that the songs are a tribute to her relationship with Styles.
As for Styles? Fans believe that his 2017 ballad “Two Ghosts” is about Swift, as the lyrics allude to a woman’s red lips and blue eyes, Swift’s signature features.
