Yes! Two great young talented singer-songwriters, Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran, on a very catchy pop tune.
And finally, a solid mature single from Taylor!
This is one of my favorite tracks from Taylor Swift’s album, Red, and a solid song with Ed Sheeran. And good music video too… really like the reveal at the end. Good call!
I’m glad she released this as the next single… her album has so many great and mature songs, and most are very radio friendly. But thus far, she’s released the “fun” and “young” pop hits (which is her market and target demo), but I really enjoy her more mature sounding songs. That being said, I completely understand the reasoning and they’re all fantastically fun pop songs. “I Knew You Were Trouble” is a solid tune.
There’s not doubt she’s talented and a great singer-songwriter. As is Ed Sheeran, and this is the perfect collaboration. The best of both worlds.
And I like it. I like it a lot.
