Taylor Swift is marking her latest collaboration with a family proclamation.

“Cancel the DNA test I’m the fourth Haim sister,” she tweeted, along with the announcement from the sisters’ official account of their new “Gasoline” remix that features Swift. “This song is the only proof I need.”

The “Love Story” superstar and her former tour mates linked up again for the remix to a song originally featured on Haim’s “Women in Music Part III” album. "Gasoline" tells the story of two lovers from the perspective of the partner that wants to "go faster." In the new version, Swift comes in on the second verse and then the chorus. Perhaps the highlight is her vocals scratching as she sings, "You did me bad" before confessing, "and I did it back."

Swift joked on Twitter that the latest collaboration proved she was related to Este, Danielle and Alana. She later posted a photo of the four in animal onesies with a couple of pizzas.

“The mood board for the ‘Gasoline’ remix is just this one photo,” Swift captioned it.

Eagle-eyed Swifties were quick to see that something was afoot this week. In the first photo teasing the “Gasoline” remix, the Haim sisters stood by pump number 13 at a gas station. Swift was born on December 13 and considers 13 her lucky number. In a second photo, Swift fans caught the text “T76S0218.” They correctly speculated that the T and S were for her initials, the 7 and 6 added up to 13 and the final four digits were for the date that the song was released.

“Taylor had always told us that ‘Gasoline’ was her favorite,” the sisters said in a release. “So when we were thinking of ways to reimagine some of the tracks from the record, we immediately thought of her.”

The expanded version of “Women in Music Part III” also includes a new cut of “3 AM” featuring multi-genre singer/bassist Thundercat. The LP netted the sisters two Grammy nominations for album of the year and best rock performance. For the first time in the latter category, all of this year's nominees are women.

As for teaming up with Swift, that is not a first for Haim. The sisters appeared on “No Body, No Crime,” from December's “Evermore” and Swift tapped Haim as an opening act for select dates of her “1989 World Tour” in 2015.
