Taylor Swift Praises YUNGBLUD's 'Cardigan' Cover


Taylor Swift on Tuesday praised YUNGBLUD for his version of her folklore track “Cardigan.”

“This took my breath away,” Swift captioned a retweet of YUNGBLUD’s link to a video of the performance for BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge.

YUNGBLUD, accompanying himself on acoustic guitar and backed by a string trio, mashed up “Cardigan” with Canadian singer Avril Lavigne’s 2002 hit “I’m With You.”
