Taylor Swift‘s The Eras Tour is set to kick off in Brazil on November 18 and the South American country just honored her with an impressive art projection! Just a few days before the 33-year-old is set to take the stage in Rio de Janeiro, the city welcomed her by projecting a t-shirt onto the iconic Christ the Redeemer statue. “Welcome to Brasil Rio de Janeiro,” the white t-shirt projection read on the statue.

The now viral t-shirt projected onto the iconic landmark seemingly referenced a t-shirt that Taylor rocked in the “You Belong With Me” music video. Her shirt originally read “Junior Jewels” and featured a hand-drawn smiley face along with a plethora of names. The projection seemed to channel the t-shirt and also featured names of states in Brazil. There were a few nods to Taylor as well, including a scarf from her “All Too Well” music video and a bow and arrow for her song “The Archer.”

Eduardo Paes, 54, who is the mayor of Rio de Janeiro took to X (Twitter) to confirm the projection was for Taylor on November 16. “We will properly honor Taylor Swift and her arrival to carioca territory tonight,” he said in the clip, per NBC News. “Welcome, Taylor Swift.” He also reportedly compared Taylor’s stardom to that of the late Michael Jackson and Madonna. The “Anti-Hero” hitmaker is set to perform at Nilton Santos stadium this weekend, followed by three more shows in São Paulo through the weekend of November 24.

Soon after photos of the art projection on the statue landed on social media, many Swifties took to the comments to react. “BRASIL LOVES TAYLOR! She deserves this,” one admirer penned, while another added, “Wow this is so iconic!” Meanwhile, a third fan couldn’t help but gush over the states on the t-shirt. “Love how all of our 26 states (and federal district) are represented, O BRASIL TE AMA TAYLOR,” they tweeted. This is not the first time art has been projected onto the statue, as the city often displays messages in support of local and global causes on the landmark.

Taylor kicked off the South American leg of her famous tour on November 9 when she performed in Buenos Aires, Argentina. That weekend, Taylor’s new beau, Travis Kelce, 34, made sure to support her by attending one of her shows alongside the pop star’s dad, Scott Swift, 71. During the concert, Taylor sent fans into a frenzy when she leaped into the NFL star’s arms and shared a passionate kiss with him. The couple are reportedly taking their romance to the next level and have plans to introduce their parents to each other when the Kansas City Chiefs play against the Philadelphia Eagles on November 20.
