Debuting number 1 on the U.S. Billboard 200 and selling a whopping 1.287 million copies in the first week, Taylor Swift is back with her sixth studio album “1989.” Venturing away from her country sound and transitioning into full-blown pop, “1989” is a refreshing change for Swift. The album does not include any features, showing Swift transitioning into her new sound on her own.
The overall production on the album is crafted very well, executively produced by pop hit-maker Max Martin. The album includes the lead single “Shake It Off,” the newly announced second single “Blank Space,” “Wildest Dreams,” and “Bad Blood”—a song rumored to be about fellow pop artist Katy Perry.
Overall, I’m pleased with the album and thoroughly enjoyed her new sound. This album receives four and a half stars.
