Taylor Swift drops sexy new single- …Ready For It?

We didn’t have to wait long for the Queen to drop yet anther track off her upcoming 6th studio album- Reputation due out November 10th!

Ready for it

 

After her big music video premiere for her first single- Look What You Made Do at this year’s Video Music Awards- Taylor strikes again just a week later! After teasing new music last night, today, Sunday September 3 she dropped a sexy new track- …Ready For It? 

This song is FIRE! Is it not? Yet again, Ms. Queen proves she is here to stay. Sampling some Bad Blood Vibes there, we get to hear Taylor sing a sexy serenade to a “new love.” (I’m not getting into comparing the lyrics to who she’s dating now…no drama, just music.) I feel like these lyrics are more mature and in your face. It’s almost a Taylor Swift version of a rap song, and I’m with it! She speaks about how this current love interest is above all those from her past. And that in her dreams they have quite the scandalous relationship. She’s basically asking him if he’s ready for it? Ready for her- in all her crazy Taylor glory! 😉 I have to say although the track sounds like a “nicer” Taylor Swift with remnants of her old sounds, I still think it fits well into her new image. It’s still very different. I love the ending, how it’s very chanty and very audience sing-a-long friendly. “Baby, let the games begin…” 😉

FAVORITE LYRICS:

From Verse 1:

Some boys are trying too hard
He don’t try at all though
Younger than my exes but he acts like such a man, though
I see nothing better
Keeping him forever

From Verse 2:

Knew I was a robber
First time that he saw me
Stealing hearts and running off and never saying sorry

But if I’m a thief then
He can join the heist and
We’ll move into an island

Every lover known in comparison is a failure
I forget their names now
I’m so very tame now
I’ll never be the same now

***

Pre-Chorus
I-I-I see how this is gonna go
Touch me, and you’ll never be alone
I-Island breeze and lights down low
No one has to know

Chorus:
In the middle of the night, in my dreams
You should see the things we do, baby, mmm…
In the middle of the night in my dreams
I know I’m gonna be with you
So I take my time
(Are you ready for it?)
(Ooh, are you ready for it?)

Post-Chorus:
Baby, let the games begin
Let the games begin

I’m sure we’ll be getting a music video for this one shortly too! Fingers Crossed!

Until her next move.

Taylor Swift- “Look What You Made Me Do” Video Premiere

Taylor Swift made tongues start talking once again, after premiering her Music Video for her latest single Look What You Made Me Do at the 2017 Video Music Awards this past Sunday.

Although Swift was not there to present it, (definitely a strategic move on her part #LetTheMusicDoTheTalking) her presence was largely felt in the strong images on the screen.

The video opens up in a cemetery with a zombified Taylor clawing her way out of her grave which reads “Here Lies Taylor Swift’s Reputation.” And the dark levels of imagery do not stop there, as Zombie Taylor proceeds to shovel dirt on top of her more “nice girl” self, lying there peaceful, arms crossed.

There’s a massive car crash scene, a scene where Taylor swings on a swing literally inside of a gold cage, robs a bank, lifts motorcycles with her bare hands, builds a squad of robots, and then dominates a dance routine in a sexy black number. Seriously though, my fav look of hers from the video. When I heard this song, this is the look I pictured her in.

Needless to say, Taylor GOES ALL IN for this video. She calls out EVERYONE! Even herself.

At the 2:21 mark in the video, where Taylor begins singing the Bridge-

I don’t trust nobody and nobody trusts me
I’ll be the actress starring in your bad dreams

and then hitting us with the infamous line-

“I’m sorry, the old Taylor can’t come to the phone right now.”
“Why?”
“Oh, ’cause she’s dead!” (ohh!)

the hair on my arms stood up as I got the chills as we see current Taylor standing on a pyramid of past versions of herself- the fallen Taylors if you will, all clawing to stay alive as they battle it out for the top spot- eventually losing their grip.

As if that visual wasn’t enough to convince us that Taylor has completely transformed into a “Give No Fucks” kinda girl, we then get a real treat at the end of the video as we see all the different versions of Taylor cat fighting, so to speak. We see sweet country singer Taylor calling everybody ya’ll and trying to keep the peace, we see circus ring leader Taylor bully her and call her fake, biker Taylor call her out for “playing the victim,” “snake lover Taylor” hissing, and many others who some may say call out the disses made about her by other famous celebs. It’s as if a tell all and a satire had a baby and this was the result. It is dynamite and ballsy as all hell. Hats off girl, speak your truth. #WEWILLLISTEN  

And yes there are tons of countless little references and hidden/not so hidden Easter eggs that point directly to the many people who have contributed to the down fall of the old, nice girl Taylor Swift. I won’t go into speculations, because let’s face it the internet is already going into overdrive with theories. Watch that video a ton of times and you won’t be able to unseen them! But girl damn. I am so intrigued by the route she is taking. I feel like she is pretty much a genius strategist. I don’t think she has really spoken out about anything publically regarding her new material and quite frankly I don’t see her doing so for this record. She’s lost all faith in the media to tell her story and do it justice.

In one of her latest social media posts, Taylor announced that her new album Reputation will be sold in partnership with Target. And with the album, fans will be able to purchase two collector magazines, which give them an insight into her creative process. Kind of like the personal voicemails she released on 1989 regarding how she wrote some of her lyrics, but more visual. The caption of the cover art for the magazine reading… There will be no further explanation. There will just be reputation.

All of her posts have been quiet formal, very commercial. Almost a disconnect there. I think she is done with sharing her personal life, because somehow the media always spins it and she ends up adding fuel to the fire that others have taken and burned her with. I look forward to seeing more of THIS Taylor’s journey. It may be scaring the living daylights out of me, but I am in it and ready to see what you got for us TS.

Until we meet her next move.

A look back on Taylor’s Swift’s edgiest fashion choices

Taylor Swift has experimented with edgier fashion over the years but in 2016 she dyed her hair bleach blonde and began rocking more unique pieces. Definitely a stray away from her old Hollywood vibes of polka dotted bikinis, skips, and cardigans. 

It’s no secret that Taylor’s newest album Reputation due out this November, is set to be a clap back at those who have wronged her, just listen to her latest single- Look What You Made Me Do.

Swift dawns a sleek- slicked back hair style, loose torn clothing, a tight chain choker, and a dark lip that contrasts her flawless porcelain skin, in her new album’s cover art. Very rebel, rocker-esque. Let’s take a look at some of Taylor’s edgiest looks.

I love the cut of this dress, it’s so visually stunning. And I love how the bleach blonde hair and deep purple lip compliment each other, and those shoes! Such a cool look on her!

I cannot wait to see the evolution of Taylor’s style throughout the release of this new album. I’m confident she’ll SLAY it!

Taylor Swift Goes Dark

It’s no secret that the world has been in a whirlwind ever since Taylor Swift apparently deleted all of her social media posts. To be honest I didn’t think much of it, I thought oh maybe she was hacked, maybe she’s looking for a clean slate.

But then I heard she posted some images of a snake and low and behold the speculation amongst the media beast began.

Who is the snake?

Is she referring to the obvious choices- Kanye? Kim? Katy?

I’m not even going to go there. There are plenty of fans who have their theories- Google it if you must. I’ll let Taylor’s music do the talking.

FYI that snake image is actually quite terrifying.Screen-Shot-2017-08-23-at-12.48.24-PM-1503507325[1]

Taylor’s following social media posts included the announcement of her single which dropped at midnight on Thursday, and the release date of her 6th studio album. Along with those announcements Taylor also released her album title and artwork.

0823-taylor-swift-cover-1[1]

EDGY, huh?

The album is entitled Reputation and is set to be released on November 10th! I am so ready! I didn’t realize how long it’s been, until now. Man I’ve missed T-Swift!

Something tells me this is going to be a whole new Taylor.

Not to segway, but I recently was checking in on Miley Cyrus (I know her album should be coming out soon too and she’s got new music out- Malibu, Younger Now) and in a recent interview on Jimmy Fallon she said something that really resonated with me and I am sure rings true here in Taylor’s case too. Wait Demi Lovato has new music out too and her album is coming out September 29th, damn the trifecta is coming! 

“With Bangerz too, I never tried to prove anything or not be myself. Anytime I say I’m being myself, whether I look like this, or I look completely different or I’m [dressed as] a panda, that is myself. I’m always being myself. It just depends what that is.”Miley Cyrus

And I think her saying that makes absolute sense. Everyone goes through different parts of their lives, and we all change, we all grow, we all adapt. We all feel emotions and some of those emotions can lift us up, or tear us down, or help us write kick ass revenge anthems. Cue-the single. #LookWhatYouMadeMeDo

I totally dig this lyric video, the visuals are super cool and eerie, and the black, red, white, gray, color scheme, is GOLD when you hear the lyrics it all just goes.

In this song Taylor bites back at someone for making her change into a harder, more untrusting person. She does not make herself a victim, she does not act innocent. She owns up to her wrong doing, but also throws on the shade to this person (or people) that have stinted her once caring and generous ways. Basically saying that she tried with this person, gave them an inch and they took a yard.

Some lyrics that really have a bite include:

[Pre-Chorus]
But I got smarter, I got harder in the nick of time
Honey, I rose up from the dead, I do it all the time
I’ve got a list of names and yours is in red underlined
I check it once, then I check it twice, oh!

***

The world goes on, another day, another drama, drama
But not for me, not for me, all I think about is karma
And then the world moves on, but one thing’s for sure
Maybe I got mine, but you’ll all get yours

***

[Bridge]
I don’t trust nobody and nobody trusts me
I’ll be the actress, starring in your bad dreams

(Look what you made me do)
(Look what you made me do)
I’m sorry, the old Taylor can’t come to the phone right now.”
“Why?”
“Oh ’cause she’s dead!”

***

That last lyric mentioned is actually now, Taylor’s new twitter/instagram bio-

Bio

If you ask me, Taylor’s return to music (after three years since releasing the epic 1989) is highly calculated. She has a master plan here. Wiping her social media clean. Her edgy new look. The snake imagery. The new bio. She’s putting out a new vibe. She’s saying that all of this drama has caused her to change drastically. The old Taylor is gone, and we’re about to meet her evil twin sister. It’s a straight up telenovela. And I don’t hate it!

This is where she’s at now. And it looks like she’s ready to kick some ass. We got a taste of this boss lady in 1989’s Bad Blood…but I think this new album will be an entirely heightened level of calculated revenge. Shit’s been stirring for three years.

If we thought Dear John, and Better Than Revenge were intense because it shaded some of her famous exes…just wait! 

Everyone reinvents themselves- artists especially. With everything that she has been through- publically being shaded my Kanye and Kim and her recent assault case, it’s no wonder Taylor has been keeping a low profile and has gone a little edgy when it comes to expressing herself through music. Her reputation has been tested. Her life exploited. This is the new Taylor Swift. Fan or not, I know you’ll learn to love it. You just have no chance here. This song is going to be EVERYWHERE.

I’m super intrigued to see how this new Taylor Swift Era plays out, and I’m eager to hear what the rest of her album will sound like. I know I’ll be getting my tickets, when she goes on tour! I’m already planning an edgy outfit in my head, #ShesOnMyConcertBucketList

 

Look out for a full album review COMING SOON!
