I LOVE new music Friday's!! This one is is especially awesome thanks in large part to Taylor Swift, because she released her 8th studio album, 'Folklore!' Upon hearing the album title I wasn't sure what to expect from her, but she had delivered once again! This album has less of pop sound and more of an indie feel to it and I am here for it! Is there nothing that Taylor can't do!? NOPE. She a gem and so is this new album. She gets takes us on an emotional journey with her as she shares her heart with us in way we have;t seen from her before, so raw, open and real. I ate up ever word of each song.
She released the official music video for the second track of the album 'Cardigan' that she herself directed. I've always admired how hands on she is. The shot the video under the supervision of a medical examiner and was in compliance with COVID-19 safety standards. Way to set an example, Taylor! (Mask up y'all)
You can check out he video to 'Cardigan' below. She also released all the official lyric videos for all the songs on the album too. They're all amazing but my favorite songs so far are 'The Last Great American Dynasty,' 'This is Me Trying,' 'Invisible String,' and 'Mad Woman.'
P.S. I may have bought the cardigan she has on her website, same one she wears in the video! I needed a new white cardigan anyways so that was convenient ;P I treated myself to that instead of one of the 8 deluxe versions of her album. I'm still temped to buy the cassette copy though. lol
In addition to the amazing surprise album drop by Taylor we have a new song from Maroon 5 too! I've been anticipating this one for weeks, 'Nobody's Love' and yes, I LOVE it! I knew i would though Maroon 5 is always pumping out bangers. It's cute bop and the video features a bearded but bald headed Adam Levine, and ya'll I don't hate that look him, in fact, I'm feeling it. Just when I thought I was over my lil crush on Adam, it's back! haha!
We also go new music from the beautiful and talented J. Balvin! Featuring one of my faves, yes that's right, Dua Lipa! Plus Bad Bunny and Tainy! This on is called 'Un Dia (One Day)' and its a freaking bop! Enjoy!
And for my country loving friends out there this new one by Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani is super cute!!
