AT&T* is debuting Part 1 of Taylor Swift’s performance at the DIRECTV NOW Super Saturday Night concert. View it exclusively on Taylor Swift NOW starting today.
The 3-part special will include Taylor performing her haunting hit “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever (Fifty Shades Darker)” for the first time live – accompanied onely by her acoustic guitar. This never-before-seen series will also feature hits like “Bad Blood” and “Shake It Off.” The second and third parts will be added over the next few weeks.
The concert was filmed live in front of 9,000 people in Houston on Feb. 4, at Club Nomadic, a custom-built 60,000+ square-foot venue. It is part of Taylor’s multi-year, multi-faceted deal with AT&T that includes content and performances.
“The future of entertainment centers on how artists interact with their fans. We’re working with Taylor on new and different ways she can connect with them,” said Brad Bentley, executive vice president and chief marketing officer AT&T Entertainment Group.
Released at midnight, we finally have new Taylor Swift music in the post-1989 era! The track, “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever,” is a duet written specifically for the upcoming Fifty Shades Darker film. Taylor posted song artwork and a short clip to her Instagram and twitter accounts. The song is available on iTunes and other download and streaming services.
Best take a seat for this news: Taylor Swift and Zayn Malik have teamed up on “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” a song from the upcoming Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack.
The pop superstars take turns in delivering their lines. “”Baby, baby, I feel crazy/Up all night, all night and every day/Give me something, oh, but you say nothing/What is happening tonight?” Then her collaborator and former One Direction star takes over: “I don’t wanna live forever/’Cause I know I’ll be living in pain.”
“I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” is Swift’s first new release as a vocalist in 2016 and the first taste of her music post-1989. And it’s the first single from the Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack, which is due to drop Feb. 10 through Republic Records.
The song was written specifically for the feature film by Swift, Jack Antonoff & Sam Dew and produced by Antonoff.

Taylor was named #1 in highest paid woman in music, edging out Adele, Madonna, Rihanna, and Beyonce. Taylor’s $200 million haul from the 1989 Tour also broke previous all-time North American touring record, set by the Rolling Stones in 2005. She also had endorsements with Apple, Keds, Diet Coke, and recently inked a deal with AT&T.
One of the big singles on Taylor Swift’s 1989 is “Wildest Dreams”—a phrase that applies just as well to her recent earnings as the song. Swift pulled in $170 million over the past year, making her the highest-paid woman in music.
The bulk of her career-best haul came from her 1989 Tour, which grossed over a quarter of a billion dollars. More than $200 million of that came in North America, where Swift shattered the Rolling Stones’ record. She padded her total by moving more than 3 million album equivalents during our scoring period and shilling brands including Keds, Diet Coke and Apple.
“She has been building her fan base for years, and that fan base crosses multiple market segments,” says entertainment attorney Lori Landew of Fox Rothschild. “It’s this ability to appeal to younger and older audiences, and those in between, that makes Taylor such a sure bet with both concert promoters and brands who want to affiliate with her and with the community she has cultivated.”
Taylor Swift’s “1989” earns a 6x platinum certification in the United States.
The reigning Grammy winner for Album of the Year has officially reached a new multi-platinum tier in the United States.
According to the RIAA, Taylor Swift’s “1989” reached 6x platinum status on October 19, 2016.
The 6x platinum certification confirms 6 million in US album units. Each unit is equal to 1 sale, 10 track sales or 1500 track streams.
Whereas many newly certified albums are generating the majority of their units from track sales and streams, it is worth noting that “1989” has sold roughly 6 million pure US copies in the United States. Its certification is therefore as much of a “pure sales award” as one should expect to see in 2016.
Taylor will be headlining the DIRECTV Super Saturday Night in Houston before Super Bowl 2017. The 64,000 square-foot venue will be customized for ultimate Taylor Swift fan experience. Tickets will be available through AT&T promos – more details to come!

AT&T will share more details on the new multi-year relationship in the near future.
Taylor Swift, the only woman in Grammy history to ever win Album of the Year twice, will provide fans with the ultimate experience Saturday, Feb. 4, at a custom made 64,000 square foot venue in Houston created especially for this event.

Taylor recently donated $1 million dollars towards Louisiana flood relief. The Red Cross has characterized this as the worst US natural disaster since Sandy. Taylor spoke on how heartbreaking it was hearing that people were forced out of their homes.
“We began The 1989 World Tour in Louisiana, and the wonderful fans there made us feel completely at home.”
Taylor Swift is donating $1 million to Louisiana flood relief after torrential rains caused massive flooding in the state and killed at least 11 people.
Swift told The Associated Press on Tuesday (Aug. 16) that Louisiana residents graciously welcomed her when she kicked off the U.S. dates of her 1989 World Tour in the state last year.
“We began The 1989 World Tour in Louisiana, and the wonderful fans there made us feel completely at home. The fact that so many people in Louisiana have been forced out of their own homes this week is heartbreaking,” the 26-year-old said in a statement.
The flooding is some of the worst in Louisiana history, damaging at least 40,000 homes. More than 60,000 people have registered for disaster aid from the Federal Emergency Management Agency after widespread flooding hit the state, according to Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards’ office.
