Taylor Swift’s reaction to ‘Swag Surfin’ at Chiefs game has been huge boost to band

There were some tense fourth-quarter moments for the Chiefs and their fans throughout the postseason, with the exception of their Wild Card game win over the Dolphins.

The Chiefs rolled over Miami 26-7 on a frigid night at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium. The party was underway when the Chiefs’ unofficial theme song, “Swag Surfin” was played in the final quarter.

Fans at Arrowhead Stadium began moving to the music, and that included international singing star Taylor Swift, who was on hand to watch her boyfriend, Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce.

That video went viral, and the music group behind “Swag Surfin” said it has seen a spike in interest in the song since then.

Fast Life Yungstaz members iMcFli, Vee and Mook joined the “Ryan Cameron Uncensored” show last week and talked about Swift’s effect.

“She’s a big help, I’ll say that much,” Mook said. “She got our streams up like 700% right now on Spotify, Apple Music. Our YouTube following, we gained over 20,000 followers on YouTube alone, so she got us going crazy.

“Shout out to Tay-Tay, man!”

The reason “Swag Surfin” was played that night was because of Chiefs linebacker Willie Gay Jr. He had requested the song be played at Arrowhead in December when the Chiefs beat the Bengals, and the players were soon dancing on the sideline.

The artist Easton, who collaborated with F.L.Y. on the song, told Fox 4 last month: “Shout out to Willie Gay.”

“Swag Surfin” has become so synonymous with the Chiefs that Spotify is showing a clip of running back Isiah Pacheco when people stream the song.
