Fan-Girl Discussion: ‘ME!’ Welcomes the TS7 Era!

April 26, 2019 Rissi JC 5 Comments

Earlier this week, I published a little fangirl discussion about Taylor Swift, and the rumors that her newly pastel hued Instagram page hid clues about new music. On April 26 at midnight, she released new music in the form of the collaborative (with Brendon Urie of Panic! at the Disco) pop effort ‘ME!’

With this new single (??), Taylor proves what headlines allude to; the old Taylor is, in fact, “not dead.” (Not that I ever really thought she was.) This new tune is catchy, and pop heavy, colorful and strange (in the typical Taylor-Swift-makes-it-work-fashion), and makes me hope this new music will return to her lighter or ballad driven fare.

Here’s what we see in the new music video and learn from the song; let’s chat about ‘ME!’ and Taylor’s foray into her new music.

Fan-Girl Discussion: ‘ME!’ Welcomes the TS7 Era!


1: Taylor is going to make pastels trend

2: The music video is vibrant

3: The song reminds us and is (thankfully), with exception to a moment or two, a return to the Taylor fans met and connected with (referring to the light hearted “girly” nature)

4: Swifties put on their detecting skills to seek out all those Easter Eggs; here’s a few headline and fan sightings:

  • There’s more than one nod to prior Swift videos
  • There’s nods to past Swift song lyrics
  • The video smashes the dark era that was Reputation; not just in the opening, but throughout the opening sequence
  • Plus, said opening sequence features a variation on the LWYMMD video
  • In all likelihood, the word “Lover” is revealing, but of what?
  • Also, Taylor says the next album title is in the video: what do you think it is?
  • Oh yeah, and though not an Easter Egg, the video smashes Swift’s prior record

Fan-Girl Discussion: Is the #TS7 Era on its Way?

The song itself is catchy and let’s be real, it’s been in my head all day (and yes I did wait up to watch the video and buy the song). That said, I think it’s a song, same as some of Reputation’s tracks have, that will grow on me more with time. According to Swift the song is all about embracing  “…individuality and really owning it,” and she further says; “with a pop song, we have an ability to get a melody stuck in people’s heads, and I just want it to be one that makes them feel better about themselves, not worse.” I love any song that is feel good (still love ‘Shake it Off,’ ‘Mine,’ and ’22’) because they do instantly put a smile on the listener’s face.

All this to say, on April 26th, Taylor’s surprise and countdown is what we expected: the launch of new music, and the return to the Taylor of before. (Also, who else things some of the once upon a time theories of this day are weird!!)

I promise that you’ll never find another like me / I know that I’m a handful baby, uh / I know I never think before I jump / And you’re the kind of guy the ladies want

(And there’s a lot of cool chicks out there)

But one of these things is not like the others / Like a rainbow with all of the colors / Baby doll when it comes to a lover / I promise that you’ll never find another like

Me

Taylor Swift, “ME!”

    Yes yes yes! I got so excited! I can’t wait for her new album. While I’m a MAJOR fan of Reputation (big time), I’m glad to see she’s going back to the old Taylor. I missed it!
    I blasted out 22 when I turned 22 LOL And still do 😂

    I think it might take me a little bit to get used to her new music, like you said, such as with Reputation. I am really excited for this new TS era though. I think it’s going to be awesome. I did find it interesting that her first single was featuring another artist though. I’m not sure she’s done that before. I also loved all the colors in the video!

    I’m a new follower. :)

      I really liked the colorful and playful nature of her video, too! And yes, it was interesting to see her lead single featured a collaboration. Makes me curious to see what else is to come. :)
