It’s sorta ironic that Taylor Swift’s new album, which dropped this week, is titled Red. Why, you ask? Because money-wise, it’s the furthest thing from being in the red, and will rake in major cash. According to preliminary estimates, the album is on target to sell more than one million copies during its first week. If this happens, Swift will become the first female artist in Soundscan history to have two albums achieve this feat. The 23-year-old is undeniably the most successful pop star in the world right now. Sorry Rihanna, Beyonce, Katy Perry etc…
And if that wasn’t enough to make us mere mortals jealous. The country singer gets to fall in love with a cute Parisian boy in her new music video, “Begin Again“. Filmed in France’s capital, Taylor looks stunning in vintage-inspired clothes Jackie O would be jealous of. She meets her beau at a quaint cafe and before you know it, the two are exploring the cobblestone streets of Paris in their hipster bikes and retro wardrobe. Sigh, why wasn’t my three Paris experiences like this. BOOOO. Check out the music video below.
After Swift’s childish video for “Never Ever Getting Back Together” clip, it’s nice to see a more romantic, mature and picturesque visual. What do you think of the video? Does it suit the song’s lyrics and emotions? Have you purchased Red? If so, what are your favorite tracks? Sound off below.
