This upcoming weekend will mark one month since Taylor Swift’s sixth album Reputation was released, and now that we have all had time to listen to the album over and over and memorize all of the lyrics, people are beginning to post their own versions of Taylor’s amazing songs.
Broadway actresses and singers, Shoshana Bean and Cynthia Erivo recently took to the studio to record their version of the album’s third track, “I Did Something Bad.” You might know Shoshana as Elphaba in Wicked and Cynthia as Celie in The Color Purple, but in this video, they are a dynamic singing duo. Sitting stoically on stools with a cello and a violin as instrumental support, Cynthia and Shoshana are clearly ready to defend their reputations.
The cover is amazing, but it gets better. On Friday, Taylor tweeted a link to the video with the caption “Absolutely stunning.” We were already loving this cover, but if Taylor is a fan that makes it even better!
