Calvin Harris has found himself brushed aside as his girlfriend Taylor Swift gets steamy with another man in her latest music video. In addition to releasing a teaser for her new single Wildest Dreams, the pop star announced that the visuals will premiere at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards.
Interspersed with quick shots of galloping horses and zebras, Swift, 25, shares an intimate moment with a male love interest whom she passionately embraces in the rain. The scene bares a striking resemblance to the iconic kiss between actors Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams in the 2003 rom-com The Notebook.
Fans will not have long to wait for the full length video as Swift revealed it will debut at the MTV VMAs on 30 August. Alongside the teaser clip, Swift tweeted to her 62.5m followers: "Revealing when the full video will be shown, Swift wrote: "Wildest Dreams music video preview. Full video debuts VMA night. Get ready. #WildestDreamsMusicVideo."

Wildest Dreams is the fifth single to be released from Swift's chart-topping studio album, 1989, following on from Shake It Off, Blank Space, Style, and Bad Blood. The latter smashed records by becoming the most viewed music video in 24 hours on VEVO after clocking up more than 20.1m views in May 2015.
Opening up about the inspiration and lyrics behind her new ballad, Swift told NPR in October 2014: "That's actually a really good example of the way I go into relationships now. If I meet someone who I feel I have a connection with, the first thought I have is: 'When this ends, I hope it ends well. I hope you remember me well'. Which is not anything close to the way I used to think about relationships. It's that realisation that it's the anomaly if something works out; it's not a given."
The MTV VMAs will be a huge night for the Grammy-winning singer who has received nine nominations, including video of the year for Bad Blood and best female video and pop video for Blank Space. The awards ceremony will be hosted by singer Miley Cyrus at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles.
