Flashback to a past romance? Taylor Swift Fans are convinced the singer’s Midnights bonus track ‘High Infidelity’ is about her ex-boyfriend CalvinHarris. Read on for more details.
What does April 29 mean in “Hohe Untreue”?
A line in the track references the date April 29, and as expected, Swifties seem to have deciphered its meaning.
“You know there are many different ways / that you can kill the one you love / The slowest way is to never love her enough,” Taylor sings on the track. “Do you really want to know where I was on April 29th? Do I really have to tell you how he brought me back to life?”
According to fans on social media, this date is important because Calvin released the song “This Is What You Came For” on April 29, 2016 rihannain which Taylor was a secret songwriter under her pseudonym Nils Sjoberg.

On the same day, Calvin was interviewed about a possible collaboration with Taylor.
“You know, we haven’t even talked about it. But I can’t imagine that,” he said at the time. “No. She’s about to take a long break.”
While the “One Kiss” musician was talking about his music, Taylor was actually photographed in New York City around the same time. In typical Taylor fashion, she has yet to confirm these fan theories.
How long were Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris together?
Taylor and Calvin first met at the Elle Style Awards in February 2015 and a month later they were spotted together, sparking romance rumors. In May of that year, the couple went public at the Billboard Music Awards and shared photos of their love online over the summer.
They dated for just over a year and news of their split broke in June 2016. “The only truth is that a relationship has ended and what remains is a huge amount of love and respect,” Calvin confirmed in a tweet -Post at that time. Later that month, he threw major shadows at the “Look What You Made Me Do” singer in a series of since-deleted tweets.
“It hurts me at this point that she and her team would try so hard to make ME look bad at this stage. I figured if you’re happy in your new relationship, that’s what you should focus on instead of trying to rip your ex-boyfriend off for something,” he wrote. “Please focus on the positive aspects of your life because you deserve something great.”
However, Calvin later issued a public apology.
“It’s very difficult when something I think is so personal is played very publicly. The aftermath of the relationship was much more publicized than the relationship itself,” he told GQ that same June. “When we were together we were very careful that it didn’t become a media circus. She respected my feelings in that sense. I’m not good at being a star. But when it was over, all hell broke loose.”
