Taylor Swift shared some exciting updates with her fans this week, including details about a hot new collaboration. 

 The 33-year-old revealed that she recorded a song with rapper Ice Spice. The track, which drops this week, is the remix of her song, 'Karma'.

"Um. SO much to tell you. I’m a massive fan of this brilliant artist and after getting to know her I can confirm: she is THE ONE to watch. So delighted to say that Karma Featuring the incredible @icespicee_ will be out TOMORROW night at MIDNIGHT ET," she tweeted on Wednesday. 

The 'Lover' hitmaker says the song's release is part of the new 'Midnights (Til Dawn Edition)' deluxe album she will release soon. 

"In addition to 'Karma' ft Ice Spice… You asked for it, we listened: Lana and I went back into the studio specifically to record more 'Lana on Snow on the Beach'. Love u Lana but wait there’s more… for those of you going to the East Rutherford shows - we will have a new special edition CD available ONLY on-site starting at 12:30pm ET on Friday! This CD will have a never before heard 'Midnights' vault track called 'You’re Losing Me'!" she tweeted.

Ice Spice also took to Instagram to announce their new song. She described Taylor as the "coolest person on earth".  

Their fans can't wait to hear their new single and watch them perform the song live. "Wow can’t wait for this," one fan wrote. 

The pair's paths have crossed onstage before. Ice Spice presented Taylor with the 'Song Of The Year' award at the iHeartRadio Music Awards in March. T-Swift won for her his single, 'Anti-Hero'.

News of the pair's collaboration was met with some side-eye. Taylor is currently dating Matty Healy - a member of The 1975. 

He came under fire earlier this year for laughing at a racist joke made about Ice Spice on 'The Adam Friedland Show' podcast. 

Co-hosts, Nick Mullen and Adam Friedland, said "she's like an Inuit Spice Girl" and “this chubby Chinese lady". Matty apologised soon after the incident.

While many are surprised that Ice Spice agreed to collab with Taylor after the Matty incident, the rapper's fans are thrilled that she gets to work with one of music's biggest superstars so soon in her career. 

She rose to stardom in 2022 thanks to her song, 'Munch (Feelin' U)', which became a viral hit on TikTok. 

Some of her fans include Kim Kardashian and her daughter North West. Ice Spice also featured in a campaign for Kim's 'SKIMS' shapewear line. 

She also recently collaborated with Nicki Minaj on 'Princess Diana'.
