Taylor Swift Just Released Her New Album and We Are LOVERS

It’s been two years since Taylor Swift released her last album, Reputation, so you can imagine how excited we are that she has just released her new album today! We might just have a Tater Tot pyjama party this weekend, which right now might be liberating with exams and everything else overwhelming us.

This album is very much a celebration of love, in all its complexity, coziness, and chaos. It’s the first album of mine that I’ve ever owned, and I couldn’t be more proud. I’m so excited that #Lover is out NOW:

ME!

Getting to this point has probably taken a lot of hard work from the popstar’s side and we immediately knew that this was going to be a great album when she released ME! on April 26, 2019. The song features Brendon Urie of Panic! at the Disco and the song was co-written by Taylor with Joel Little and Urie. The song broke a Vevo record by amassing 65.2 million views within its first day of release.

Interesting fact: Right before the album was released, Taylor made a crucial change to the song ME!. She removed the lyrics “Hey kids! Spelling is fun!” Fans were highly upset about this change and when someone questioned “omg why”, Tay Tay allegedly responded, “We not in elementary school.”

You Need To Calm Down

On June 14, her second song from the album Lover was released and it made headlines around the world with a very powerful message. You Need to Calm Down carries a big statement about LBGTQ+ rights and the fact that we need to fight the negativity and support the choice of freedom to be who we really are. The music video was definitely a hit and featured the likes of, Ellen DeGeneres, Ryan Reynolds, Laverne Cox, Ciara and many more. The music video even features Katty Perry dressed as a burger, with Taylor dressed as fries, because, you know, nothing goes better together like a burger and fries, RIGHT?

Interesting fact: At the end of her music video of You Need to Calm Down, she asks viewers to sign a petition for Senate support of the Equality Act on Change.org. The message reads: “Let’s show our pride by demanding that, on a national level, our laws truly treat all of our citizens equally.

It goes without saying that the rest of the album is truly complex in that Taylor-Swift-way we all know and love. It speaks of love and has lots of laughter in it too.
