Gracie Abrams shares video of Taylor Swift putting out a fire: ‘I think we’re going to die’

The room is on fire! There’s visible smoke!

Darling, everything’s on fire — but Taylor Swift can put it out.

In a video shared by Gracie Abrams commemorating their new collaboration “Us,” the “Down Bad” singer fumbles around with a fire extinguisher before successfully dousing the flames. As far as she’s concerned, it’s not a worthwhile kitchen to burn.

“Writing this entire song from 2am to 6am is some of the most fun I’ve ever had in my life,” Abrams wrote on Instagram. “Now we know how to use a fire extinguisher.”

The video sees Swift perplexed by a small flame on a countertop in a kitchen. “What do I do about this?” she asks while holding a fire extinguisher. “I think we’re gonna die!” she jokes.

Swift finally gets the extinguisher to erupt with a stream of retardant, and she and Abrams are both surprised by the sudden force of the device, which sprays everywhere. “Our purses are ruined, and my shoes, and the whole room I think,” Swift says of the objects that sat on the counter.

Fittingly, “Us” features lyrical fire that reflects the duo’s late-night mishap (as in, they literally sing about flames — whether the song itself is fire is for you to decide). “And if history's clear, the flames always end up in ashes/And what seemed like fate, give it ten months and you'll be past,” Swift and Abrams sing on the song’s chorus.

“Us” is the fifth track on Abrams’ sophomore album The Secrets of Us (no relation to Swift’s “The Story of Us”), which released Friday. Both of the singer’s LPs are almost entirely produced and co-written by Aaron Dessner, the National instrumentalist who collaborated with Swift on Folklore, Evermore, and The Tortured Poets Department. Fellow Swift collaborator Jack Antonoff also contributed to “Us” as a producer.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Abrams noted her enthusiasm for working with Swift. “When I was little, I used to pretend that [writing with Swift] was happening, like imaginary-friend-style in my head,” she said. “[The fact] we have something tangible that we made together that I personally f---ing love so much is beyond me.”

Abrams, who is the daughter of filmmaker J.J. Abrams, opened for Swift at 17 shows during the North American leg of the Eras Tour last year, and will double that number when the “Fortnight” singer returns to the states at the end of 2024.

Abrams also told EW that the impending return to the Eras stage helped motivate her to perfect her second album. “I think knowing that we had more Eras dates this year, that was also a real driving force behind wanting to make something that just had the chance to explode a bit more for the audience,” she said. “I really wanted to make them feel more electrified by my set.”
