Swift’s transition to pop proves positive for career
Taylor Swift’s new album, 1989 broke all Swift stereotypes and began her career as a full pop artist, yet her new pop voice does not fail to excite Swifties around the world.
Swift released her new album on Oct. 27, making her the first artist to sell over a million copies in one week for three different albums.
First debuting as a country singer, Swift’s new pop singer image has caused much controversy over the last month. Many say the singer is not being herself by making an album that has no country roots and does not completely revolve around her love life, but this difference brings a refreshing taste to her music.
In the past, Swift’s albums were loaded with sappy songs about ex-boyfriends with slow guitar chords packed with emotion.
This new album lacks the stereotypical Swift country music and is replaced with bubbly electronic beats that fill modern pop music.
Although this is the complete opposite of Swift’s style, these new beats are just what she needs to keep her fans excited for a new album.
The overall quality of the music models the usual style of pop music with an ‘80s touch. The techno sound and catchy beats make the songs more modern. “Welcome to New York” and “Blank Space” are two songs on the album that embody the techno sounds. Their catchy, upbeat tunes make them easy to dance to.
Overall, the music on this album is just what fans needs to keep an upbeat rhythm to our lives, if only fans can accept that Taylor Swift is not the kind of artist she was five years ago.
