Malone covered all his tattoos for this new collaboration to play Swift’s star-crossed lover.

In the music video, replicas of Malone’s facial tattoos appear on Swift’s face as she sings.

The video features an intimate scene between Post Malone and Taylor Swift, with Malone tenderly holding Swift’s face and the two clasping hands. Later, they work on typewriters across from each other.

Streams of pink and blue emerge from their typewriters, creating a bright spark. Swift reads to Malone as they lie in the middle of an empty road, with his facial tattoos now absent.
