In “Snow On the Beach” Taylor Swift and Lana Del Rey sing about the rare phenomenon of two lovers simultaneously falling in love with each other. The song’s heart-warming lyrics are part of a light and dreamy track that compliment the duo’s heavenly vocals.
Ahead of its release, Swift explained the meaning behind “Snow On the Beach” on Instagram, and also expressed feeling “grateful for life” to get to collaborate for the first time with Del Rey, whom she called “one of the best musical artists ever” and admitted being a “massive fan” of hers, although not the first the time, since Taylor had already voiced her admiration for Lana’s work in the past.
“Snow on the Beach” was the final Midnights track to be announced on Midnights Mayhem with Me. Swift revealed the title of the song, and Lana Del Rey being featured on it, during the final episode of her TikTok series.
Rumors of the duo’s highly-anticipated collaboration first sparked in April 2022, after Lana Del Rey shared a picture of her next to Swift and producer Jack Antonoff, a mutual collaborator of both singers, presumed to be the link between them working together.
Upon “Snow On the Beach”’s release, Swift received criticism from fans and the media for continuing to relegate female artists featured in her songs, and not meeting the expectations of a duet with Del Rey, one of the biggest female artists of 2022.
“Snow On The Beach,” featuring Lana Del Rey, is track 4 on Midnights, and I can not get through that sentence without grinning because I am such a massive fan of Lana Del Rey, more on that later. The song is about falling in love with someone at the same time as they’re falling in love with you, in this sort of in this cataclysmic, faded moment where you realize someone feels exactly the same way that you feel, at the same moment, and you’re kind of looking around going, “Wait, is this real? Is this a dream? Is this for real? Is it really happening? Kinda like it would be if you were to see snow falling on a beach. And Lana Del Rey is, in my opinion, one of the best musical artists ever, the fact that I get to exist at the same time as her is an honor and a privilege, and the fact that she would be so generous as to collaborate with us on this song is something I’m gonna be grateful for life. Absolutely love her and I really hope you love this song as much as I do.
During the week ending November 5, 2022, the song debuted at #4 on the Hot 100. The song marked both Swift and Del Rey’s first appearance on the chart together. The song also marked Del Rey’s first appearance on the chart since “Don’t Call Me Angel (Charlie’s Angels)” with Ariana Grande and Miley Cyrus peaked at #13 in 2019.
