Taylor Swift left her fans with some good ‘Karma’ on Friday in New Jersey.
The 33-year-old hitmaker, who released a remix of Karma with Ice Spice the same day, brought her collaborator to the stage at the Metlife Stadium to perform the song live for the thousands of fans who had turned up to see her Eras tour.
As she introduced the 23-year-old Bronx native to the crowd, Taylor explained what led to their collaboration, according video obtained by TMZ.
‘She [Ice Spice] reached out and said, “If you’d ever like to do a collab, I would love to.”‘
‘And what she didn’t know at the time,’ the Delicate singer continued, ‘is that when I was training for the tour, I was listening to pretty much exclusively just her music every single day. All day. So I said, “Absolutely, when can we do it?”‘

The Anti-Hero artist was styled in a purple and black sequined outfit with a black garter belt and knee high black boots as she made the introduction.
Her long, blonde hair was styled straight with bangs and he sported her trademark bright red lipstick.
‘So we immediately went into the studio and I just not only fell in love with her, but just decided she’s the entire future,’ the Grammy winner gushed.
‘I’ve been around so many artists and so many artists just starting out, but I’ve never been around an artist who’s so prepared and curious and focused on what she wants.’
Ice Spice, 23, then joined her wearing a coordinated black leather bra top with a metallic toned trim that crossed her toned torso and buckled in the back.
She wore a lacy bolero jacket and a matching pleated mini skirt and her trademark Ice Spice necklace.
The Munch (Feelin’ U) artist styled her red hair in natural curls and walked across the stage in black leather boots and stockings with black lace in the front and a black back seam.
Taylor told a similar story in an audio clip shared by Spotify.
‘Collaborating with Ice Spice was one of the most natural things,’ she said.
‘So I immediately got her number and said, “Hey, would you want to do your version of Karma? Do you relate to this?”‘
Taylor said her new pal jumped in ‘head first.’
‘Getting to know her has been so special because I’m blown away by her,’ she said.
