The pop star wrote “Mr. Perfectly Fine (Taylor’s Version)” after Jonas reportedly ended their romance over the phone, and fans insist the song is all about their break-up.
She released her new version of the track on Wednesday (07Apr21), tweeting, “Me in 2020: life is chill, writing songs based in fiction to avoid drama, feeling pretty grown up My 2008 music from the vault, in a goblin voice: ‘REELEEEEEEASE MR PERFECTLY FIIIIIIINE.’ ”
In the song she sings, “Hello Mr. Perfectly Fine /How’s your heart after breaking mine? /Mr. always at the right place at the right time, baby /Hello, Mr. casually cruel /Mr. everything revolves around you /I’ve been Miss Misery since your goodbye /And you’re Mr. Perfectly Fine.”
The re-release hasn’t upset Jonas’ wife Sophie Turner, who posted the Spotify listing of the song, writing, “It’s not NOT a bop @TaylorSwift,” prompting the singer to respond by referencing Sophie’s “Game of Thrones” character and stating, “forever bending the knee for the (queen) of the north.”
Over the weekend, Swift revealed the track listing for the “Fearless” bonus album, explaining it will include 27 tracks from the project’s recording sessions. She has already released two tracks – a reworked “Love Story” and a previously unheard collaboration with Maren Morris, called “You All Over Me” – and previewed a third, “Wildest Dreams (Taylor’s Version)”.
Swift is in the process of re-recording her old hits to thwart the new rights owners’ efforts to make money off the originals.
