  1. Her store already has a listing for it so an announcement will come soon I imagine. https://store.taylorswift.com/products/digital-album
  2. Taylor Swift has not given up on the full-length album as an indicator of success as well as art form, and judging from pre-release sales for “Lover,” which comes out Friday, her belief in the ongoing viability of the format is not in vain. “The anticipation of this album is extraordinary, with pre-sales quickly approaching one million copies globally,” Monte Lipman, founder and chairman of Republic Records, tells Variety. Swift’s previous album, 2017’s “Reputation,” was the last album to sell a million copies in the U.S. in its opening week, and all eyes are on “Lover” — her first release since signing with Republic — to reveal whether that’s still an attainable goal this late into the streaming era. The international pre-release tally suggests that it might well be. X
  3. People always seem to forgot that Shawn was birthed via Magcon which was a group of some of the most obnoxious, racist, [etc etc etc] white teenagers ever. His PR team has done such a great job at making him appear to be a sweet boy who has never done anything wrong. Wish more people would have already seen through that before eating Zzzenorita up, but I’m glad the GP is slowly but surely catching on to it.
  4. It has to be real since it came directly from the label CEO but I’m not holding my breath for her to outdo 1989 or something. Regardless, it looks like Lover has her biggest pre-order numbers yet so even if the album sells less than Reputation on release week (like, new non-preorder sales) she’ll probably do the 1m+ again
  5. I mean she does way more than the bare minimum so... your point? The first two singles were questionable but Archer and Lover are highly acclaimed. We have to stan at her quality getting rewarded
  6. Holy... shit???? Reputation did 400k pre-orders in the US and I highly doubt she did more pre-orders outside the US than in it, so looks like she has 500k+ US pre-orders

  9. I'm actually quite positive this is what will happen. Give her older music great scores (since we all know it was her quality peak, fingers crossed for Lover...) only to rate her two newest releases (Rep: 6.5) and Lover (probably no higher than 6) her lowest... if they're that petty.
  10. https://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/taylor-swift-taylor-swift/ Debut 6.7 https://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/taylor-swift-1989/ 1989 7.7 https://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/taylor-swift-fearless/ Fearless 8.1 https://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/taylor-swift-speak-now/ Speak Now 8.2 https://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/taylor-swift-red/ Red 9.0 They already reviewed Reputation in 2017 (6.2), so this brings her average score by Pitchfork to 7.65 (and for reference, they gave Red a higher score than the likes of Lemonade, Dirty Computer, Golden Hour, Melodrama, etc - legit shocked to filth at that )
  11. So 700k pure and probably 100-150k SEA/TEA Yeah I’m sticking with my 800-850k prediction
  12. But she... didn’t make more noise? Perhaps it’s because you follow people who care about Normani and not Taylor — but everyone was talking about Lover as well (see: the fact that it trended right alongside Motivation), not to mention Lover has received pretty much unanimous acclaim from music critics, maybe even more than Motivation did tbh. You can easily see that Taylor’s tweets in the past couple days have 2-3x the engagement of Normani’s + Lover pulled bigger numbers on every platform, and numbers don’t lie. But anyway I’m not really sure how this is shocking lol, Taylor is basically a veteran at this point (who has a massive fanbase) and Normani is just starting out. It’s pretty normal for people to hype up a new artist, doesn’t mean they’re going to smash out of the gate — it doesn’t work like that. Motivation will surely grow as she has essentially nowhere to go from here but up, which is already being seen as Motivation is pulling bigger numbers today than it did on its first day. So, I don’t really think you can compare the debut of a promotional single by a music veteran to a newcomer who just released their solo debut.
  13. Both Ariana and Taylor previously held the record together, then Boyfriend broke it, now Lover put them right back at the same place (not sure where they rank overall, Drake and his other counterparts surely have more) But both Taylor and Ari have 6 — Lover, YNTCD, ME!, ...RFI?, LWYMMD and Shake It Off are Taylor’s #1s there
  14. Jack confirmed Lover was written entirely solo by Taylor, making it her first since This Love and her 44th entirely solo-written song overall — most of her tracks since 1989 have had around 1-2 co-writers (actually, there weren’t any solo-writes on reputation) According to sessioners there are 4 entirely solo-written songs on the album in total
  15. Yes! Here is a list I was actually wrong and Lover is her 44th entirely solo-written song But Stale is not one of them, This Love is the only solo-written song on 1989 - thank god Stale is not her best!

    It’s a new original track - basically about when she met Joe and kept the relationship a secret that entire summer (2017)

    If only Daddy Yankee had featured on it!
  18. She announced it at the TCAs () and news outlets are referring to it as her new single already but I’m pretty sure it’s just a promo single. Will update when we know more!
  19. Doesn’t exist This is allegedly her first entirely solo-written track since This Love (43rd overall)... can’t wait

    I saw a tweet from one of the big pop culture accounts (like MusicNewsFacts or something) claiming she confirmed these are indeed for a full project. I think on her Instagram live?
  21. Lover


    Well... as I expected I didn’t like it It just sounds bland, like, it’s not very Katy Perry-ish. And it’s not what I expected tbh especially for a Charlie-produced song so idk what happened... also, it definitely is a Prism reject imo (could easily fit on there) I think the lyric video is cool though and I’m excited for the video! She confirmed these are indeed for an upcoming album so hopefully it comes out this year
  22. The lyric video looks nice Idk how I feel about the snippet but I'm sure the song will build similar to how NRO did

    No it’s not This is a popular styling shot - white shirts, black and white because it’s vintage. Gaga did not invent that and the only reason you’re commenting this is to stir something up so take it to Battlegrounds, babe.

    Lmao literally where? I didn’t know she invented black and white shots - besides that there’s no similarity. Get out OT: She looks amazing
