If you have been living under a rock, you might not know that Taylor Swift released her groundbreaking album reputation. Many critics are saying that this is her best album yet, but most people say that after she releases any new album. Of course, it has a different sound than all of her other albums, with electronic beats and romantic lyrics. Even Eli Sanchez, who is not ashamed to admit that he isn’t the biggest Taylor Swift fan, says that her new songs are “lit.” Personally, I would have to agree.
Her new album is different from anything she has ever done before, with new beats and even a little bit of rapping. She collaborates with Future and Ed Sheeran on one of the album’s hottest tracks, “End Game.” She also finally breaks away from her innocence in this album while throwing shade at some of her enemies, like Kanye West. “This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things” is Swift’s diss track to Kanye. My personal favorite song on the album is “Don’t Blame Me,” although, I had a really hard time choosing which song was my favorite. She ends her album with a dramatic ballad, “New Year’s Day,” which sticks to her traditional slow, love song approach. Overall this album was very good and already became the best selling album of 2017 within a week. Unfortunately, reputation is not available on Apple Music or Spotify yet, but I would definitely recommend spending $13.99 for this album. If that’s not up your alley, you could always just wait until it becomes available. One thing is for sure, Taylor Swift hits another stroke of genius with her latest album.
