Stephen A. Smith is singing Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce's praises — again!

In a guest spot on The Howard Stern Show Tuesday, the ESPN personality shared his take on the superstar’s relationship with Kansas City Chiefs tight end, and whether he thinks it will go the distance.

“She’s an incredible artist,” Smith, 56, said about Swift. “I went to her concert with my daughter. Man, Howard, it was off the chain. I loved it. I couldn’t believe how much I loved it. She was phenomenal.”

And the broadcaster was impressed with the Grammy winner's popularity — where every concert-goer “knows every song,” he said.

Smith added that he can understand the appeal of her boyfriend as well, after the radio host remarked that they should get married.

“He is a two-time Super Bowl champion, he’s on the verge of potentially being a three-time Super Bowl champion,” the First Take co-host said about Kelce. “He’s universally recognized as one of the greatest tight ends in the history of football. Good looking dude, got style, got flair. He’s got skills. He’s got a future in [broadcasting] once he retires from football.”

It’s not the first time that the outspoken sportscaster has gone to bat for the couple.

Earlier this month on an episode of his ESPN show, Smith defended the “Anti-Hero” singer while addressing the criticism she has faced for attending Chiefs games.

"I have to take a moment to come to the defense of Taylor Swift," he said. "Everybody's sitting up there and acting like she's some kind of impediment, and, excuse me, she did her job. That Eras Tour? Off the chain, [it] generated billions."

Smith continued, arguing that it “ain’t her fault” that Swift gets so much attention during NFL broadcasts.

"It's not like she used the games to bump up the concerts,” he said. “Oh no! Those kids were going to her concerts whether the NFL was promoting her or not.”

He added, “Taylor Swift is that girl. Let's show some respect. She probably is gonna have a positive impact on Travis Kelce's performance, okay? I'm not trying to disrespect Taylor Swift."
