Lover is really THAT album but y’all hate on it for what?
the 1 has really grown on me in the last few days
content creators should be hired. all of them
“you showed me colours you know i can’t see with anyone else” is such a good lyric woah
The only thing I could see wrong with the folklore long pond SS is that…..
I WASN’T EVEN THERE!! 😭
So when is JA1 going to drop?
seven, part 1
the way taylor called it the “longpond session” probably knowing we would all say we’ve been to a session now and it would make us so happy 🥺🥺🥺
almost that time of the year where i can listen to christmas tree farm again without getting weird looks
i found my first reaction to the folklore sessions in my half asleep and very emotional state the night it came out and frankly i think it’s spot on
Taylor Swift lyric stickers 1/?
I wish Taylor did something like the long pond studio sessions with every album or at least did interviews with her producers. I definitely only knew (and loved) jack antonoff because of Bleachers but without the studio sessions I wouldn’t have known what a cinnamon roll aaron dessner is and I wish I knew more about the rest of her producers.
Lover is the 7th album that Taylor released, came out on August 23rd, 2019, has 18 tracks, and came with four deluxe editions that included diary entries of Taylor’s younger self as well as posters.
The songwriters on it are Taylor, Louis Bell, Frank Dukes, Jack Antonoff, St. Vincent, Joel Little, Cautious Clay, Sounwave, and Brendon Urie.
The singles were ME!, YNTCD, Lover, and The Man, all of which had MVs.
It peaked at #1 on the BB 200 and is certified 2x platinum.
The album had 867K sales in its first week, was the world’s best selling album of 2019, and broke the all-time record for most simultaneous entries on the BB Hot 100 with 18.
Taylor said this album felt like a celebration and something that could make you feel good. In comparison to rep, she said that Lover is more of a singer-songwriter personal journey, and finished the record in Feb. 2019, when she posted the 7 palm tree pic (ah yes, such fond memories of those days. How I miss them 😂)
Besides winning over our hearts, Lover also won Favorite Pop/Rock Album at the 2019 AMAs (see video), Favorite Album of the Year at the 2019 PCAs, and Pop Album of the Year at the 2020 iHeart Radio Music Awards, amongst others.
In September 2019, Tay announced the dates and locations in which she was going to perform songs off the album, including in countries where she hadn’t been in awhile or never performed in. Unfortunately, in April 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, these dates either had to be canceled or postponed. It remains to be seen when and if Taylor will be able to finally perform and make-up these shows.
It’s kinda crazy how we’ve had this album for over 15 months and we still have yet to hear fan-favorites Cruel Summer, ITHK, and MAATHP live. Fingers crossed we eventually will, maybe next year 🤞🏻
My holy trinity off of it is Cornelia Street (aka my all-time fav and the most perfect song to ever exist), Cruel Summer, and Daylight 💗🧡💛
