New Taylor Swift Song Previewed By Kelsea Ballerini?

(Radio.com) Country singer and #Squad member Kelsea Ballerini shared a video on Snapchat over the weekend that previewed a new song. But here's the thing, the voice sounded much more like Taylor Swift's than Ballerini's.

The brief video showed a man working on a song. "We didn't know it, thought we could grow it / beautiful for a moment / we were roses, yeah," a woman's voice can be heard singing. Considering her brief, whirlwind relationship with actor Tom Hiddleston, is this new Swift music?

That Ballerini would be teasing it doesn't seem so far-fetched considering that the two are good friends. Ballerini joined Swift in Nashville when she brought her 1989 Tour to the city. And then in June, Swift and Hiddleston went on a double date with Ballerini and her man (via Bustle). Read more here.

(Radio.com) It's good to be one of Beyonce's backup dancers. You get to travel the world, contribute to intricate pieces of choreography, and participate in iconic routines like the "Single Ladies" dance. If all that weren't enough, your fearless leader steps in to meddle in your personal life, in the name of putting-a-ring-on-it.

During a show in St. Louis on Saturday (Sept. 10) at the America Center Stadium, Beyonce orchestrated a proposal between her choreographer (John Silver) and one of her backup dancers (Ashley Everett).

She interrupted "Single Ladies" to welcome Silver onstage, who popped the question before tens of thousands of fans. Everett said yes, and Beyonce benevolently asked if she was able to continue dancing in the evening's show. (Spoiler alert: She was).

Watch Beyonce play Cupid among her creative team here.
