Who the flip is Rachel Platten? Get acquainted with Taylor Swift’s new BFF here.

Taylor Swift is THE pop girl to know, isn’t she? From throwing birthday parties for Fifth Harmony band members, to giving newly signed singers their break in her ‘Bad Blood’ video, Swizzle is nothing but supportive of the next generation of our pop faves.


And now Taylor is helping kickstart the career of our latest country-pop obsession Rachel Platten who’s latest single ‘Fight Song’ is currently flying high in the US, Australian, and New Zealand charts. Get it over here, Platten!

‘But how has Taylor helped little Rachel out?’ you ask. Well, it began earlier this month when Miss Swift posted an Instagram video of her and Rachel singing ‘Fight Song’ together. Don’t believe us? Just watch.

Since that short vid was posted to over 34million people (dat promo tho), Rachel has been invited to perform ‘Fight Song’ with Taylor on her 1989 World Tour. Did she accept? Of course she ruddy did, the girl’s not stupid.

“She radiates love and kindness,”Rachel said about Taylor. “We gave each other a huge hug. I wasn’t sure she would know – I was like, ‘Really? You know who I am?’ She was like ‘Of course! I love your song!'”

We’re not at all jealous. Honestly.

‘Fight Song’ is released in the UK on July 31.
