REPUTATION PRECEDES ME…

I WANNA BE YOUR ENDGAME. I WANNA BE YOUR FIRST STRING. I WANNA BE YOUR A TEAM. I WANNA BE YOUR ENDGAME. ENDGAME.

I’ve had that stuck in my head since Taylor’s album came out. It’s been 2 months already and I still can’t get over how perfect Reputation is.

The first track being …Ready For It, I was already conquered by the album. When I have a new album out by an artist I love, what I do, is listen to the whole album from start to finish.
Needless to say that after the banger that was RFI, I was expecting great things from the album. And I wasn’t disappointed. Especially when second song on the album came round, and turned out to be one of my favorite song by Taylor Swift ever: ENDGAME featuring Future and Ed Sheeran.

Now, I’m not gonna say that the fact that Ed Sheeran is on the song influenced me, cause even if he weren’t on it I would love it still, but it sure adds to the effect !

The song talks about how people more often than so believe rumours and what’s being told about someone else. Taylor Swift adresses here everything that’s ever been said about her and also the phase during which everybody was calling her a snake.
In fact, if you look at it closely, in the music video, there are references to the snake as in the snake suit on the bike, the snake stirrer and the snake game when Taylor is on a table at a party.
Of course, take it the way you want, but I like to believe that she never does anything without having thought it through over a 100 times and this is just too perfect to really question it.

I’ve been a fan of Taytay’s music videos forever, always loved how it was directed or the stories behind them.
Take it that that video is actually shot and showing two of my favorite cities: London and Tokyo.

Now, take my favorite singers, put them in my favorite cities, and you got a killer video.

Bonus: Taylor’s part in this song already was my favorite part of any songs ever, but seeing her act to it is definitely MY FAVORITE PART OF THE VIDEO. “I hit you like BANG. We try to forget it but we just couldn’t, and I bury hatchets but I keep maps of where I put them, REPUTATION precedes me, they told you I’m crazy, I swear I don’t love the drama, it loves me”
