Quincy Jones on Baysic Swift: We need more songs, not hooks

Recommended Posts

Did he lie? nat2 Let's face it, it's been a while since this quote from Quincy was true for Tay:

Quote

“a great song can make the worst singer in the world a star”

She had her moment with 1989, which served bops and was covered in its entirety because they were actually strong songs. But Reputation? trash1 She's used the same formula over and over again and exposed herself as a basic singer and songwriter. Not even Ed Sheeran ( jj4 ) could save ha ny1

Taylor is a pretty good songwriter, though. The problem is, she has been focusing on hooks and formulas recently. Working with Max Martin and Jack Antonoff really stunted her songwriting abilities, in my opinion.

He honestly told no lies. I don't really understand the hype over her, but she does have some good songs.

About half of Reputation supports his argument; the other half doesn’t.

Isn’t Jack Antonoff a good songwriter though? Or am I thinking of something else 

nvm I was thinking of someone else rip4

Jessie J can actually sing though. Taylor can't. End of story.

No one cares what Quincy Jones says

Oop I guess the media does seeing as his quotes are being used left-right-and-centre

Idk I mean 1989 and Reputation on a whole are pretty solid to me. I can listen to both without skipping cause they are pretty standout.

Having now listened to Reptilian and Loser at length, I can confirm she has used the same formulas since at least 1989 (inb4 "so has Madge") and most of Loser is tiring because of it lol3

Yes, he lied. 

The best song of the decade doesn't have a hook in it:
