The song itself is a big departure for Taylor as she is branching out musically to a hip-hop track, and a bold move for B.o.B in that he chose a squeaky clean artist like Taylor to collaborate with. Taylor has worked with hip-hop artists before, as a matter of fact, she’s brought Nicki Minaj, B.o.B., and T.I. on stage at her concerts, not to mention her Thug Story video with T-Pain at the 2009 CMT Awards.
But the difference with this song, is that it’s a collaboration of both artists musically. The beginning starts with what sounds to be a ukelele which would embody Taylor, but then going into the hip-hop/pop beat of B.o.B.
