Taylor Swift

Taylor Alison Swift (born December 13, 1989) is an American singer-songwriter. Her discography spans multiple genres, and her narrative songwriting, which is often inspired by her personal life, has received widespread media coverage and critical praise. Born in West Reading, Pennsylvania, Swift relocated to Nashville, Tennessee, at the age of 14 to pursue a career in country music. She signed a songwriting deal with Sony/ATV Music Publishing in 2004 and a recording deal with Big Machine Records in 2005, and released her eponymous debut studio album in 2006. Swift explored country pop on the albums Fearless (2008) and Speak Now (2010); the success of the singles "Love Story" and "You Belong with Me" on both country and pop radio established her as a leading crossover artist. Swift experimented with pop, rock, and electronic genres on her fourth studio album, Red (2012), supported by the successful singles "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" and "I Knew You Were Trouble". With her synth-pop fifth studio album 1989 (2014) and its chart-topping singles "Shake It Off", "Blank Space", and "Bad Blood", she shed her country image and transitioned to pop completely. The media scrutiny on Swift's personal life influenced her sixth album Reputation (2017), which delved into urban sounds, led by the single "Look What You Made Me Do". Parting ways with Big Machine to sign with Republic Records in 2018, Swift released her seventh studio album, Lover, in 2019. Inspired by escapism during the COVID-19 pandemic, she ventured into indie folk and alternative rock on her 2020 studio albums, Folklore and Evermore, receiving acclaim for their nuanced storytelling.

1989 (Taylor Swift album)

1989 is the fifth studio album by American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift. It was released on October 27, 2014, by Big Machine Records. Following the release of her genre-spanning fourth studio album Red (2012), noted for its pop hooks and electronic accents, the media questioned the validity of Swift's status as a country artist. Inspired by 1980s synth-pop to create a record that shifted her sound and image from country to mainstream pop, Swift enlisted Max Martin as co-executive producer, and titled her fifth album after her birth year as a symbolic rebirth of her artistry. The album's synth-pop sound is characterized by heavy synthesizers, programmed drums, and processed backing vocals. Swift wrote the songs inspired by her personal relationships, which had been a trademark of her songwriting. The songs on 1989 express lighthearted perspectives, departing from her previous hostile attitude towards failed romance. Swift and Big Machine promoted the album extensively through product endorsements, television, radio appearances and social media. They pulled 1989 from free streaming services such as Spotify, prompting an industry discourse on the impact of streaming on music sales.After the album's release, Swift embarked on the 1989 World Tour, which was the highest-grossing tour of 2015. The album was supported by seven singles, including three US Billboard Hot 100 number ones: "Shake It Off", "Blank Space", and "Bad Blood".

Bad Blood (Taylor Swift song)

"Bad Blood" is a song by American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift, taken from her fifth studio album 1989 (2014). Swift wrote the song with its producers Max Martin and Shellback. The album track is a pop song with stomping drums talking about betrayal by a close friend. A remixed version of "Bad Blood" featuring American rapper Kendrick Lamar was released as the fourth single from 1989 on May 17, 2015, by Big Machine and Republic Records. Upon release of the album, critics expressed mixed opinions about "Bad Blood", with some criticizing its production and repetitive lyrics, while others considered the song one of the album's highlights. The remixed single was praised for the reworked instrumentation and Lamar's verses, which some considered out of place on a pop song. "Bad Blood" was supported by a high-budget music video directed by Joseph Kahn and produced by Swift. It featured an ensemble cast consisting of many singers and fashion models, and received media coverage for its futuristic visuals inspired by neo-noir styles. It won a Grammy Award for Best Music Video, and two MTV Video Music Awards for Video of the Year and Best Collaboration. Commercially, "Bad Blood" was a chart success, reaching number one on record charts in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Scotland, as well as the United States, where it peaked atop the Billboard Hot 100 and two Billboard airplay charts, Adult Top 40 and Mainstream Top 40.

Evermore (Taylor Swift album)

Evermore (stylized in all lowercase) is the ninth studio album by American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift. It was released on December 11, 2020, through Republic Records, less than five months after the singer's eighth studio album, Folklore. Evermore was a spontaneous product of Swift's extended collaboration with her Folklore co-producer Aaron Dessner, with whom she developed a creative chemistry. Swift launched Evermore as a surprise album alike Folklore's release, dubbing them as sister records. She described Evermore as an offshoot of "the folklorian woods", which is an escapist, cottagecore-inspired, alternative music direction she first conceived with Folklore in quarantine during the COVID-19 pandemic. Hence, Evermore is an alternative rock, folk-pop, and chamber rock record, carried by wintry compositions of fingerpicked guitars, somber pianos, lavish strings and sparse percussions. Its subject matter is built around impressionist storytelling and mythopoeia, comprising tales of love, marriage, infidelity, and grief, arranged like an anthology. American bands Bon Iver, Haim, and the National contribute guest vocals. Earning widespread acclaim from music critics, Evermore was praised for its character studies, experimental production, and Swift's nuanced, expressive vocal performances. Reviews regarded the album a sequel or a counterpart to Folklore.

Folklore (Taylor Swift album)

Folklore (stylized in all lowercase) is the eighth studio album by American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift. It was a surprise album, released on July 24, 2020, via Republic Records. After the cancellation of her concert tour Lover Fest due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Swift conceived Folklore in quarantine as "a collection of songs and stories that flowed like a stream of consciousness" out of her imagination, and collaborated with producers Aaron Dessner and Jack Antonoff virtually. Departing from the upbeat pop production of its predecessors, Folklore consists of mellow ballads driven by neo-classical instruments, pursuing indie folk, alternative rock, and electroacoustic styles. The album explores themes of escapism, empathy, romanticism, nostalgia, and melancholia in its lyrics, through a set of characters, fictional narratives and story arcs, in contrast to the autobiographical tone of Swift's previous projects. The title was inspired by the singer's desire for the music to have a lasting legacy akin to folk songs, whereas its artworks and aesthetic reflect cottagecore. Upon release, Folklore broke the Guinness World Record for the biggest opening day on Spotify for an album by a female act. Three of its tracks reached the top 10 of the record charts in eight countries, namely "Cardigan", "The 1" and "Exile", the first of which is the album's lead single and marked Swift's sixth number-one song on the US Billboard Hot 100. Folklore topped the charts in Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and various other countries. It was Swift's seventh consecutive number-one album on the US Billboard 200, where it reigned atop for eight weeks and became the best-selling album of 2020.

"Love Story" is a song written and recorded by American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift. It was released on September 15, 2008, by Big Machine Records, as the lead single from Swift's second studio album, Fearless (2008). Inspired by a love interest unpopular to Swift's family and friends, "Love Story" is based on the plot of William Shakespeare's 16th-century tragedy Romeo and Juliet. In the song's narrative, the two characters, Romeo and Juliet, end up in a marriage proposal, contrary to Shakespeare's tragic conclusion.

Red (Taylor Swift album)

Red is the fourth studio album by American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift. It was released on October 22, 2012, by Big Machine Records. The album's title refers to the tumultuous, "red" emotions Swift experienced during the album's conception; its songs discuss the complex and conflicting feelings resulting from fading romance. Hoping to experiment with new sounds that would expand her music beyond its traditional country pop style, Swift engaged new producers such as Dan Huff, Max Martin, Shellback, and Jeff Bhasker, alongside her long-time collaborator Nathan Chapman. The final product was an album coalescing country, pop, and rock with folk and electronic elements, drawing from sub-genres such as arena rock, Britrock, dance-pop, and dubstep. Big Machine promoted Red as a country album but many critics disputed this categorization, calling it a straightforward pop record. The album was supported with seven singles, four of which peaked inside the top 10 of the US Billboard Hot 100; the lead single "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" topped the chart, while "Begin Again", "I Knew You Were Trouble", and "Red" reached numbers eight, two, and six, respectively.
