Taylor Swift just rereleased "Wildest Dreams," TikTok's latest obsession, and fans are swooning over the pop-country singer's generosity. Ever since the long-awaited Taylor Swift TikTok debut in August 2021, platform users have not looked back. 

Though the singer states, that "this is pretty much just a cat account," she has provided her followers on the app with some gems. Earlier this week, she noticed that "Wildest Dreams" was being used alongside the slow zoom feature while people sang along to the chorus. 

"You'll see me in hindsight
Tangled up with you all night
Burnin' it down
Someday when you leave me"

This gave Swiftie an idea. 

"Someone said slow zoom makes you look like the main character," Taylor wrote on TikTok. "I said make it Taylor's Version pls."

Yep, that meant she had planned to spontaneously share "Wildest Dreams (Taylor's Version)" all thanks to the viral trend. 

"If you guys want to use my version of 'Wildest Dreams' for the slow zoom trend, here she is," she wrote. "Felt cute, might drop the whole song later."

There's plenty for fans to look forward to in the coming months: she'll be dropping the album Red (Taylor's Version) in November with a plethora of goodies. 

"I just couldn’t stop writing. This will be the first time you hear all 30 songs that were meant to go on Red. And hey, one of them is even ten minutes long," the singer stated. 

Since the prolific artist is doing things a little differently now, many are wondering if 1989, the album in which "Wildest Dreams" appears, will also be treated to "Taylor's Version." One could only hope, right? Until then, we'll be watching Ms. Swift's feed very closely.
