LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Taylor Swift and rapper B.o.B. had a rough day at the office when it came to shooting the music video for their new song, “Both of Us.”
The Nashville countryside, where the two chart-topping artists filmed the new video, was filled with quite a few creatures to contend with.
“There’s bugs on people, there are bugs crawling on people, there are bugs trying to bite people,” Taylor said in behind the scenes footage.
The set nearly became deadly at one point.
“At one point I looked over on B.o.B.‘s shoulder and there is this giant spider!” Taylor explained. “It looked like a bird! It was that big.
“It was just hanging out there ready to kill him and I saved his life pointing it out, I’ll point that out!” she continued.
In addition to a few of nature’s beasts, the B.o.B. said being out in rural Tennessee helped show off his song partner’s beauty.
“It brings out the most enchanting side of Taylor Swift,” the hip-hop star said of the video.
Adding, “The song is more like a project, this is bigger than just B.o.B. and Taylor Swift. This is about all walks of life, all classes of society. It’s about everybody really.”

The video premieres on MTV on June 27. The single is from B.o.B.‘s album, “Strange Clouds.”
