The old Taylor may not be dead after all, but Taylor Swift‘s new track, “…Ready For It?” isn’t the shining star she needs to win round critics.
Say what you (we) will about Swift, her new era is off to a good start after claiming her first U.K number one with “Look What You Made Me Do,” even if it wasn’t deserved – maybe the world love New Taylor.
But not we’re well on the road to the release of her upcoming album, Reputation, it’s clear we’re going for an electro-style banger album compared to her country roots and pretty pop collection of 1989.
“…Ready For It?” is an aggressive track with thumping electro-pop beats that return back to an old topic for her, exes; “Younger than my exes but he act like such a man, so I see nothing better\I keep him forever.”
While the aggressive nature and disjointed nature of the track doesn’t always hit the mark, we can’t knock the chorus, where the production turns more dreamlike and Swift’s high pitch takes over and it really is one of the best melodies (however short) of the year!
We might not be Swift’s biggest fan, and like half of the other critics out there, we’re not feeling her new music – but we can’t help but be excited for what she’s going to drop next.
