Taylor Swift lent her voice to rapper B.o.B’s “Both of Us,” a song about the everyman on his new album, Strange Clouds. The pair teamed up once more for the music video which was directed by Jake Nava and filmed in Nashville.
While the video was filmed in Music City, don’t expect to see the neon lights of Lower Broadway. Instead, the grittier parts of Nashville are featured along with men, women and children living their day-to-day lives. The video begins with B.o.B. at his home and Taylor in a rundown pool hall.

The video sheds light on how the simple things in life, like playing in the sprinklers or the high-flying antics of a dog, can take a person away from their troubles, if only for a moment. As the song ends, Taylor and B.o.B. live out a sort of fantasy life in a rural area of Tennessee, away from the grit and grime of the city.
