Taylor Swift gave her new boyfriend, Travis Kelce, a special shout-out at one of her recent shows. 

The 33-year-old changed the lyrics of her song, 'Karma', in honour of the Kansas City Chiefs player. 

In the original 'Karma' lyrics, Taylor sings:

Karma is the guy on the screen
Coming straight home to me

During her second show of her 'Eras Tour' in Buenos Aires, Argentina, at the weekend, Taylor changed the lyrics to: 

Karma is the guy on the Chiefs
Coming straight home to me

Travis, who was in the audience, blushed and put his hands on his head as Taylor's fans roared in excitement. 

After the show, Taylor was seen running to Kelce with open arms and planting a kiss on his lips. 

Taylor's fans are so obsessed with 'Tayvis', AKA 'Swelce' and Traylor', that they have shared every possible angle of the moment. 


While non-Swifties are getting slightly annoyed with the couple's public displays of affection, Swifties are doing what they do best - pushing Taylor's songs up the charts. 

'Karma' jumped 115 spots on the Spotify Global charts after the videos from Taylor's concerts went viral. 

The song was officially released in May 2023. A remix featuring Ice Spice also dropped that month. 


'Karma' is not the only Taylor Swift song climbing the charts. 

The re-release of her album, '1989 (Taylor’s Version)', is #1 on the Billboard 200 for the second week in a row.  

'Is It Over Now? (Taylor's Version) [From The Vault]' is #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 song chart. Several other tracks are also in the top 10. 

This is Taylor's world and we are all just living in it!
