Who’s ready for a twist?

.

Superstar pop sensation Taylor Swift has broken record after record with the release of her sixth studio album Reputation in October, skyrocketing to number one across the world. Her second single …Ready for It? has just been re-released as a remix in collaboration with American music producer BloodPop®. Swift has already claimed the 2017 pop scene with her number one hit single Look What You Made Me Do, which served as the first single from her latest album. BloodPop® has also created waves this year with his release Friends in collaboration with Justin Bieber.

The instrumental of this remix gives the track a completely new face. As the original version consists of an upbeat, and at times mellow tempo, which includes comparisons to Kanye West’s Yeezus album, the new remix is fresh new take on Swift’s sound. Both versions create suspenseful build-ups throughout the track. However, the remix has a strong EDM undertone, with heavy drum kit use, which gives the track a club vibe. If I were asked to pick a version based on the instrumental, I would have to say I love the original a bit more, as the melody grabs you entirely in conjunction with the lyrics.

“Knew he was a killer first time that I saw him,

Wondered how many girls he had loved and left haunted”

.

The lyrics to this track are truly enticing. It focuses on themes of love, lust and fantasy. The nature of the lyrics show a resemblance from previous hit song Wildest Dreams, where the songstress sings about finding the love of her life only within her dreams. However, …Ready for It? proves to be more dark and luscious as the starlet sings about a man who projects a bad reputation in love, making her desire him more. She pokes fun at the media’s perception of her being quite “wild” when it comes to men and she brutally makes evident that she’s just as bad as this man and that she could perfectly burden him, once again showing resemblance to her message in previous hit Blank Space from 1989.

The one thing I’ll always respect about Swift is that she’s not afraid to make fun of her past and push the boundaries through her music. …Ready for It? is just another one of her tracks added to a string of past hits that throw major hints to her famous ex-boyfriends, therefore showcasing her strategic, yet masterful talents in creating music the whole world is eager to listen to. Collaborating with BloodPop® for the remix has definitely given fans a different side to the story of this track as the original feels more sensual and serious. If there’s one thing Swift is brilliant at, it’s reinventing and moulding herself to new sounds that people fall for each time. If you’re …Ready for It?, watch the music video below if you’re ready to enter Taylor’s alternate universe.
