Taylor Swift definitely knows how to shake off a breakup.

Just a few weeks after splitting from deejay and music producer Calvin Harris, 32, the pop star, 26, has seemingly moved on with actor Tom Hiddleston, 35. On Wednesday, photographs of the singer getting cozy with the Thor star in Rhode Island were released by UK newspaper The Sun.

While a source tells PEOPLE the deejay was unaware of his ex-girlfriend’s budding romance, a Harris pal adds that the Scottish star is “happy and has moved on.”

Here’s everything you need to know that led up to Swift and Hiddleston’s surprise romance:

The singer was a co-chair for the event and attended sans her then-boyfriend Harris. Never one to shy away from a dance floor, Swift and Hiddleston were captured in an Instagram video showing off their best moves to T.I.’s 2004 hit “Bring Em Out.”

While they definitely appeared to be having a blast in the video, the pair also kept a friendly distance while breaking it down.
