My guess is this won’t be the first time you hear the new single from Taylor Swift.
Taylor has been one of the biggest stars in country music and all music the last five or so years. She’s had a huge impact on country music. I feel she’s brought tons of young fans to country music. That’s been good for country music artists and for country music fans.
It always seems like a good thing when more people are exposed to country music. And Taylor has brought a lot to country.
With all that you would think that more people would appreciate what Taylor has done. I do think the majority are thrilled to have Taylor in the country family, but the not-so-silent minority has been critical of the young singer.
And now Taylor announced that her new single and album will be pop-focused and specifically focused on the late ’80s pop music. Now, I look back at that music as really catchy and really timeless. Many of the songs from that era remain favorites today.
I think it’s cool that Taylor is branching out and trying new things. That’s what artists do and she always seems to make music that is really catchy and really good. I don’t know how she does it, but this new song is getting stuck in my head.
It’s about how she’s dealing with all the press about her over the years. She’s just shaking it off. Not only is this a good song, but the message is a strong one for her fans and really for anybody.
It doesn’t matter what people say about you. If you’re enjoying life and not hurting anybody then it doesn’t matter at all what people think about you or what they say about you. Forget them.
It made me smiling seeing the negative reaction to this song. Those people don’t get it. But I guess that’s fine.
I hope you enjoy the new song from Taylor Swift.
