The surprise re-release of Taylor Swift’s re-recorded version of “Wildest Dreams” quickly sparked fan interest on Friday. More than four hours after the new rendering of the seven-year-old song was released to DSP on Friday, it passed the 2 million drama mark on Spotify.
That impressive initial number for “Wildest Dream (Taylor’s version)” easily surpassed previous records for the original version of Spotify’s song to be heard the most in one day, which was set and reset this week. On Wednesday, Big Machine-owned recordings have increased dramatically since 2014 as the song racked up 735,000 plays. On Thursday, it still peaked further at 750,000. But these numbers had nothing to do with the thrill of the new version of Swift and the rapid establishment of new margins.
Thanks to Ticket’s sudden popularity of the song, interest in the “Wildest Dreams” – OG version grew earlier this week, regardless of any known plans to release a new version. In that app, one of the users was using a snippet of melody with the “slow zoom” function of a groundswall tick.
Of course, this new version of “Wildest Dreams” has stopped working for the total number of plays for the original, which stands at 395,608,000 on Spotify.
Over the past 12 months, the daily Spotify dramas for Big Machine’s “Wildest Dreams” have hinted at a general ongoing popularity for the melody, which has been hovering below or above 1,000,000,000 dramas per day until recently. The increase of about 700,000 per day as a result of the tick-tock trend, has been fairly sudden.
News of the release of a new recording of the song came as a shock to the Swifties as they woke up on Friday morning, as fans were expecting a teaser track for the “Red (Taylor version)” album to come out anytime soon. Order and come out on the weekends before Thanksgiving. Although it was known that Swift had also worked on a remake of her “1989” album, and may even have the entire project in the can, there was no reason to get the track out of “Red” Redo before then, unless fate intervened. As in the case of “Wildest Dreams” Tiktok.
Seeing the huge wave of streams for recording the song he owned, Swift – who requested fans to sell his Big Machine catalog twice after his input – removed it and released his new “Wildest Dreams” much earlier than likely.
“Hey!” He wrote on Twitter and Instagram. “I saw you got the ticket Wildest Dreams Trending, thought you should have my version.”
He described the ticket himself in more detail with the game. “Some said slow zoom makes you look like the main character; I told him to make it a version of Taylor… it feels cute to be able to skip the whole song later, ”he wrote in a tick-tock caption. Later, in a separate tic-tac-toe video, he posted his footage in non-glam mode in overlays with the caption, “You set a date in November with Red but then someone mentioned 1989.” He impressed with a look of confusion, and then cut the video into more glamorous mode with bright red lipstick and sunglasses, the “1989” image, looking at the camera as the new version of “Wildest Dreams”.

In its original version from seven years ago, “Wildest Dreams” reached number 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 and moved up to No. 1 on the mainstream top 40 and adult top 40 list.
“Red (Taylor’s version)” is set for November 19 release. Although the album is ready for pre-order, no single from that collection has been released yet.
