Oh, you don't know? Taylor Swift can bust a sick flow.

The singer has partnered with Apple Music for their new ad campaign, and the first glimpse is quite the memorable one. In the video titled "Taylor vs. Treadmill," Swift ditches her usual angelic vocals to spit some bars.

In the hilarious ad, Swift jumps on the treadmill to get ready for her workout, and decides to listen to Drake and Future's "Jumpman" for cardio motivation. However, T.Swift gets so caught up with the beat and rapping the verse (flawlessly, we might add) that she ends up losing her step and eating it. Ouch!

For those who may have forgotten, Swift and Apple have an interesting relationship.

Last year, the singer published an impassioned letter to Apple Music that criticized the company for not compensating artists for music that is streamed during the service's three-month free trial period, calling the practice "shocking, disappointing and completely unlike this historically progressive and generous company."

Then, just a few hours after the letter went live, Apple announced that they would in fact start paying artists royalties during the 90-day period. Whoa.

Shortly after that magical moment, after months and months (and months) of withholding her music from streaming services, Taylor announced that she was going to put her album 1989 on Apple Music.

"After the events of this week, I've decided to put 1989 on Apple Music...and happily so," she wrote on Twitter at the time. "This is simply the first time it's felt right in my gut to stream my album. Thank you, Apple, for your change of heart."

And the rest was history a rap.
