Remember that time Taylor Swift made history when she became the first woman to win the Album of the Year Grammy not once, not twice, but three times? Well, now the starlet gets to share that honor with her partner in crime (and music). While the annual awards show took place back in March, Joe Alwyn recently became a recipient of the coveted trophy for being a part of the team that contributed to Folklore. Read on for all of the times Tay gave her bae some well-deserved shout-outs.
Swifties noticed the 30-year-old actor was recently added to the accolade on the official Grammy website, alongside Taylor and music producers Aaron Dessner and Jack Antonoff. But Swift made his contributions public long before the addition. "I want to thank all of my collaborators," Tay said during her Album of the Year acceptance speech before giving a special thank you to the boyf. "Joe, who is the first person that I play every single song that I write, and I had the best time writing songs with you in quarantine."
We first found out the lovebugs collaborated on the album when Disney+ released Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions. "There's been a lot of discussion about William Bowery and his identity because it's not a real person," Taylor said in the documentary. "So William Bowery is Joe, as we know... And Joe plays piano beautifully, and he's always just playing and making things up and kind of creating things."
So which tracks exactly did Alwyn contribute to? The multi-talented star co-wrote Exile and Betty, co-produced Exile, Betty, My Tears Ricochet, August, This Is Me Trying, and Illicit Affairs. He also co-created some hit songs on Tay's Evermore album, including Champagne Problems and Coney Island. Talk about relationship goals! While the power couple usually keeps details about their romance under wraps, Swift briefly talked about their music dynamic with Apple Music. Spoiler alert: they can, apparently, get even cuter.
"I say it was a surprise that we started writing together, but in a way, it wasn't because we have always bonded over music and had the same musical tastes," Tay shared. "He's always the person showing me songs by artists; then they become my favorite songs." BRB, we'll just be over here dreaming about having a love affair like Swift and Alwyn's.
