More Chatter About Taylor Swift Recording New “Country” Songs for Upcoming Album
I have to say, I did not anticipate this development at all … if it in fact is a development, which still remains to be seen. Taylor Swift so clearly was broadcasting signals ahead of her full-blown move to pop with her last album 1989, the only thing that was shocking was how long it took the country media to figure it all out. By the time Swift had her little album announcement about 1989 at the Empire State Building or whatever that was, her pop move was already a forgone conclusion.
The major pop star we should be fully expecting to go country right now is not Taylor Swift, but Justin Timberlake. He’s the one now shacking up on a big plot of land just south of Nashville, headlining Pilgrimage Fest in nearby Franklin this fall, and whose producer Timbaland is out there pretty much saying he’s going country. The only question there is, when?
But when Taylor Swift made her move to pop, all indications were her country career was finished, at least for a good long while. Sure she may show back up in her 40’s after she’s had three kids and wants to reignite her career after a long hiatus by “getting back to her roots.” How many times have we seen that card played, and by artists with even less country cred than Taylor Swift, if you can believe that?
Rumors were swirling a few weeks ago that Taylor Swift was spotted in Nashville, and was in the studio working on a new album. Something we don’t need any unnamed sources or celebrity spottings to verify is that Taylor Swift will be releasing a new record in 2017, and it will likely be in late October, or early November to capitalize off of holiday sales, just like her five previous albums. But just because Taylor Swift is in Nashville doesn’t mean she’s making country music.
Nashville isn’t exclusively a country town, and never has been. It has some of the best studios and session players in the world, and non country artists come to Nashville to record all the time. Besides, Swift still owns a place there, and it’s perfectly normal for her to be seen in town. Not to mention that even when Swift was part of “country,” her music wasn’t very country even then. So adding Nashville in the mix doesn’t really assure anything.
But there continues to be smoke about how Swift’s new project will potentially have a few country, or country-oriented tunes on it. That doesn’t mean she’ll make a full-on country album, release singles to country radio, or will even call the material country herself. But the prospects of Taylor Swift re-emerging in the country space makes for all kinds of subsequent narratives to consider for the genre.
The latest bit of information comes from an unnamed source speaking to Broadway of Country 92.5 in Connecticut. Claiming to be a sound engineer in Nashville, the unnamed source says, “Yeah, I definitely see a lot of music come through, and she has been in the studio, and she has, I want to say it’s at least three [songs]. She’s kind of poppy, you know? And these songs definitely have a lot more country music vibe to them.”
“So you’re saying you’ve heard some of the new stuff, you’ve been in the studio with her while she’s recording, and you’re saying that some of her newer stuff is leaning back into the country direction?” Broadway presses.
“The final mix … nothing has been finalized. But as far as her lyrics, her guitar playing … I mean she knows how to mix stuff up, but I would definitely say this has got a real real country vibe to ’em.”
You can listen to the entire exchange below.
Of course this all begs the question of what is your definition of “country” is. If it’s early Taylor Swift, then perhaps you’re not qualified to make a judgement call on how country the new material is or isn’t. But saying it’s “definitely” got a “real real country vibe” is a very interesting prospect.
Taylor Swift hasn’t been totally absent from country music scene since releasing 1989. Little Big Town just had a little big hit with the Taylor Swift-written tune “Better Man.” It was a #1 on both radio and the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. But of course, it wasn’t really country.
And save all the stuff about “Taylor Swift never was country! So how can she come back?” Yeah yeah, that all goes without saying. But we thought we were rid of that argument when we thought country was rid of Taylor Swift. Love her or hate her, it’s hard to not respect that she finally fessed up and started calling her music pop—something many current mainstream “country” artists could learn from, most notably Sam Hunt, who is starting to finally find his own crossover success after previous failed attempts. Oh what a blessing it would be if Sam Hunt made a similar Swift announcement soon and abandoned country altogether himself.
Ultimately, it’s still too early to tell if there’s any fire behind the “Taylor Swift coming back to country” smoke, or to get ahead of ourselves by trying to hash out just what the ramifications of all that might be. But if Swift does release some country songs, there will be ramifications, that is for sure, and potentially big ones. But at the moment, this might all be part of the Taylor Swift pre-release buzz machine getting up and running. One thing we know for sure is Taylor Swift’s footsteps are paved with non-disclosure contracts. If people are chirping, including about Swift potentially going country, there’s a chance it isn’t in spite of Taylor trying to keep it hush hush, but at her behest.
Yes, it’s all very interesting and stirring the pot quite nicely. We’ll just have to wait and see if anything’s really cooking, and what it tastes like when it’s done.

Taylor swifts early stuff straddled the border between pop and country. Plenty of county pple didn’t consider it country, but plenty of pop pple would have (& did) & didn’t consider it pop. If you talk to pop programmers, they all consider body like a back road country (but popular, so they’re willing to play it).
Million reasons, and a couple of other songs on Gage’s last album definitely had an Americana influence. It wouldn’t surprise me at all if we saw the same from Swift. You can only make edm albums for so long, & she’s a very smart business person.
April 14, 2017 @ 7:50 am
Shoot me now. !!!! Can’t we ever get away from the pop tween singer? UGH
April 14, 2017 @ 3:03 pm
Amen!!!!!!!!!!!! Sick of this BS infiltrating my favorite genre!
April 15, 2017 @ 3:07 pm
No, you will never get away from her brilliance.
April 17, 2017 @ 10:07 am
April 14, 2017 @ 8:24 am
What difference does it make at this point? You can listen to 5 hours of today’s “country” radio, and not hear a single song more country than even her poppiest bullshit… It’s all the same at this point… 🙁
April 14, 2017 @ 8:25 am
It is weird of me, but I’ve always been fond of Swift.
You may not like her music, but she sure the hell is talented.
I guess so much respect for her being a songwriter and a musician…
She is at a point where she can record whatever the hell she feels like..
April 15, 2017 @ 2:45 pm
Talented, driven, and in charge. I think you have to give her credit for that regardless.
Cool Lester Smooth
April 14, 2017 @ 8:25 am
I’m intrigued. I think her songwriting and voice fit best with a singer-songwriter, pop/rock/country sound, and I genuinely enjoy a bunch of her more country-leaning songs, from a lyrical perspective.
April 14, 2017 @ 8:51 am
No thanks, Taylor. Go do whatever it is that you do, and I’ll just keep listening to artists that can name more than three Waylon Jennings songs without using Google. Please take Sam Hunt with you when you go back to pop music, and don’t forget to lock the door on the way out. Leave the key.
April 14, 2017 @ 8:56 am
Every Taylor Swift song released to country radio (except “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together”) was more country than anything played on “country” radio nowadays, so if she really came back (but I don’t reckon she will, look at the big success that 1989 was) it wouldn’t be so bad.
Moreover, she’s not under 20 anymore, I think she could really send to country radio very solid songs with good songwriting.
April 14, 2017 @ 10:49 am
As long as Max Martin and Shellback aren’t involved you could very well be right.
April 14, 2017 @ 9:24 am
Yet Nashville hates Tom Petty on his comments about country radio. Time changes. You say this person is 100% country. Yet do they ride a horse to work? Have electricity? Use a cell phone? Then they ain’t country. Real country. Like back in the 40’s for example. The genre has changed. Like all of them. Buddy Holly was a rock artist. So was Bryan Adams. So was Elvis and Metallica. But they all sounded different. 70’s and 80’s country music don’t sound that much different than todays if you take out that bro country crap.
They say Miranda is more country than Carrie. She is only cause she has more twang in her voice. But in the music, its the same. But most artists even big names don’t have that twang. Taylor’s first album is pretty much her only country sounding album. Based on the instruments used. I didn’t like much of her pop music. I like the genre. But not really today’s pop music. 80’s is my favorite. Talent was needed back then. Today anyone can be a pop star thanks to auto tune. I hope Taylor does come back to country music like her first album. She has alot of jealous haters in pop. She’s taken their spotlight when she just all of a sudden exploded onto the scene. And she’s not a stuck up tramp that needs to dress half naked and perform sexual acts to sell records.

Underwood’s production has been significantly more country than Underwood’s, over the last few years.
Cool Lester Smooth
April 14, 2017 @ 10:03 am
Ugh, *Lambert’s production.
April 14, 2017 @ 10:08 am
er Platinum aside? Also WotW had very little traditional country instrumentation, and I don’t think her live band even includes a fiddler anymore. Doesn’t mean it’s not good music.
April 14, 2017 @ 7:13 pm
I would disagree. WOTW might have been 24 songs but it had more steel than just about any mainstream record in awhile
April 14, 2017 @ 10:20 am
Miranda’s latest album moved heavily towards Americana (as a lot of smart artists are currently doing). Personally though, I don’t think an album existing btwn country and americana is any more (or less!) country then an album existing btwn country and pop.
Cool Lester Smooth
April 14, 2017 @ 10:21 am
“More country than Underwood’s” isn’t the same thing as being country, haha.
April 14, 2017 @ 11:23 am
HAH! Ok, I would put both Miranda and Carrie on the scale of what is country. Although neither is as country as say Cody Jinks. I think it’s perhaps better to think of it as a scale though, rather then a box.
April 14, 2017 @ 3:46 pm
Ryan Adams or Bryan Adams? I thought Ryan Adams was someone who constantly switches between doing country and rock. Taylor Swift said Ryan Adams was one of her biggest influences, maybe that’s why she switches between country and pop constantly. (Of course I do have to admit Ryan Adams early stuff in the band Whiskeytown and his first album are some really great country albums)
April 16, 2017 @ 6:32 pm
Interesting when she made that move to pop she appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone in jeans and a wet T-shirt. I think she was saying VERY MUCH that she can also tart it up for that masses. Which is essentially what she did on 1989.
April 14, 2017 @ 9:34 am
Side note on the Nashville recording: way nicer to record in Nashville, and not have paparazzi chasing around the studio, or following you to get a cup of coffee, or chasing you around in cars. If Taylor and Justin really do start spending more time in Nashville though, the paparazzi will follow them.
April 14, 2017 @ 9:37 am
An ARTIST doesn’t ‘go country ‘ or ‘ go back to country ‘ . An ARTIST IS country or ISN’T .
TS is a manufactured music commodity ….not an ARTIST in any way and was NEVER country . I wish we could put THAT posit to rest . She sang pop songs -occasionally with a fiddle and banjo- and was promoted ( shoved down our throats ) successfully as just that …a commodity . A marketable musical commodity . She was launched in a country market ….so were FGL , Sam Hunt and a whole bunch of other posers who are NOT and NEVER WERE ‘artists ‘ or country . The “ARTISTRY” about all of these ‘products’ , if there is or ever was any , is in the ear candy of the productions ….certainly not in trad country narratives or ‘talent’ inherent in the acts because there is so little of that it hurts to use the words Sam Hunt and talent in the same sentence . THE WOMAN CANNOT SING !!!! SHE CANNOT SING .
Kellie Pickler , Loretta Lynn , Lee Ann Rimes/Womack , Trisha Yearwood , Martina , Reba , Dolly , Miranda Lambert , Carrie Underwood …..on and on and on …..THESE WOMEN CAN SING and for me , and I expect many ,many other fans , it is disrespectful to even call TS a singer when so many other woman CAN sing and put their heart and soul into doing so . ” Soul ” …there’s another word TS would not know the meaning of . Look ……I know she has her fan following . So does Big Bird on Sesame Street .A fan following has NOTHING whatsoever to do with talented , visionary, COMMITTED artistry Can we please stop confusing ” successful pop commodities ” with talented , passionate committed ARTISTS who have something unique and timeless and meaningful to offer music ?
AJ sang it best with the the Bob McDill classic ” Gone Country ” That lyric is as dead on now as it ever was . Posers are everywhere ……and so are people they can market their product to .

My first thought when I heard rumors about Taylor considering a return to the “country” genre was, oh God no.
I think the challenge she faces is how she can maintain a distinct musical identity as she gets older. Her first three albums she focused on the “teen country” genre. Teen country is basically pop music with an occasional fiddle mixed in, where 18 year old white females portray themselves as naive, innocent 15 year olds. And Taylor completely dominated teen country for years. But it was a niche, and a temporary one.
So before she aged out of the teen country genre, she made a conscious decision to expand her market by officially releasing a full on pop album. “1989” sold more copies than her previous albums, mainly because mainstream pop is a much bigger market with far greater international appeal. But the challenge she faces now is that in hiring Max Martin to produce many of her songs and in adopting a more generic pop sound, she risks losing what differentiated her from most of the other pop artists and diluting her brand. She risks spreading herself too thin, as Shania Twain did with “Up”. I think Taylor is good at learning from the mistakes of her predecessors and is trying to find a way to avoid repeating those mistakes. She needs to reestablish her own identity, distinct from the rest of the pop acts that have recorded songs produced by Max Martin. She probably knows that if she continues to record the Max Martin kind of pop songs for a few more years, someone else will become the next big thing and her career will decline. She is too old now to go back to teen country. So the question is, what will be her musical identity for the next few years? I think it will continue to be somewhere in the mainstream pop market, since that is a bigger market than country. But I’m not sure what it will be.
April 16, 2017 @ 6:41 pm
Oh God Shania Twain… isn’t she supposed to have a come back.
Also I thought she was waiting out the whole Trump vote scandal or non scandal. I don’t care who she voted for but was there not some heat about that and the women’s march that turned people off, many of them in her fan base.
I guess we’ll see.
But ultimately as with Beyonce everything with Swift is too calculated and mamicured to feel authentic. As I mentioned above when 1989 came out she did that wet t-shirt cover for Rolling Stone it wasn’t Britney Level photo shoot because was so carefully trying to say she could be sexy without alienating the more conservative base. It’s like she is trying to please everybody instead of being her authentic self.
April 19, 2017 @ 8:47 am
Shania’s “comeback” is starting to look ridiculous. It has been talked about for years and years, and she has not released a new album in well over 10 years. I haven’t even heard a Shania song on my local pop country station in recent months. Perhaps there isn’t any gas left in that tank (or in that tank top, um). For the sake of country music I hope the comeback gets postponed permanently.
I think the “Trump vote scandal” is a non issue. As far as I’m aware there is no evidence that Taylor voted for Trump. I don’t think the controversy about the women’s march would have much effect on her core fan base either. I think a bigger challenge for her is figuring out what her musical identity and persona will be in her next album. You have a point that she is too calculated, like a politician trying to triangulate and split the difference (and no, I don’t think she’s sexy at all). Her music and persona in “1989” in particular seems very contrived and artificial. Whereas with her first three albums at least her young and naive fans bought into her “authenticity”.
April 14, 2017 @ 6:39 pm
April 14, 2017 @ 9:56 am
How many people think this is a marketing ploy to stir up interest in her coming album?
April 16, 2017 @ 2:38 pm
It seems early to crank up the public relations machine if the plan is to release a new album in October. But Taylor is a master at public relations and mass marketing so it would not surprise me.
Sometimes leaked rumors may be used as an unscientific form of market research, to gauge the public’s reaction before a celebrity or business makes a marketing decision. Or perhaps it might be her way of saying “How do you like me now?” to the country music industry, seeing that Kelsea and the younger girls haven’t been able to recreate her commercial success, and Little Big Town needed one of her songs to get a #1 single.

April 14, 2017 @ 9:59 am
Yeah rumor has it ol Tay is ditching the girl next door image altogether. A leaked album cover concept features her sporting dreads, a biker vest and a cigarette! Apparently she’s been spotted lately in a couple casinos in Talladega hanging out with one David Allan Coe! Who knew?
Apparently the new record was produced by Rob Zombie and will feature some classic country covers including I’m the only Hell my mama ever raised, Colorado Kool Aid, and What this world needs is a few more Rednecks , a duet with Hank 3 and a cover of I’ve Always been Crazy sung with Lil’ Wayne and Coe!
And my sources are very credible…uh huh…oh yeah.
April 14, 2017 @ 12:14 pm
Taylor Swift can write circles around most contemporary country artists and has more balls than all of them. The subject matter isn’t always my cup of tea and the pop stuff was mind-numbingly repetitive in cases, but the talent is undeniable. I’m excited to see how she matures as an artist. Some part of me believes that she’s going to dial it back some day and release an amazing real country album… just because she’s been told that she can’t do it.
April 14, 2017 @ 1:23 pm
Her face makes me want to defecate.
April 17, 2017 @ 10:44 pm
I second that defecation sir.i suspect there is a line at the outhouse where ol’ Swifty is concerned.
April 14, 2017 @ 2:37 pm
I doubt this means she is going full blown country, but as long as she starts making full use of her songwriting talents I will be happy. I didn’t like 1989 at all. Obviously, the headache-inducing electropop production was terrible, but the lazy, repetitive songwriting was what really made me upset. Personally, I think she should go the singer/songwriter route. It would put her songwriting at the forefront, and since she doesn’t have the strongest voice (most singer/songwriters don’t) it would be better for her singing softer songs than the loud belty stuff from 1989.
April 14, 2017 @ 3:05 pm
The chatter out there is not that Taylor Swift is going to make a country album or come back to country, though that makes for a good headline. The chatter is that she’s working on some country songs. Whether that means they will actually be “country,” will actually make the record, may be for the record after the upcoming record, who knows. An artist like Swift is going to workshop dozens of songs that may never be finished, or get finished but never end up on an album. A lot is still to be determined.
April 16, 2017 @ 6:47 pm
Yeah but the heyday of that is over, it was the 70s with Carole King, Laura Nyro and Carly Simon. When was the last time we a had a HUGE singer-songwwriter selling millions to the mainstream masses and hitting Billboard charts with regularity.
If you want to rule the world like Beyonce or Madonna you have to put out what sells and well crafted music does not get big returns with the prized 14-25 demo. Also if this knew album still markets itself to the young teen audience like most of her music was I will start finding that a little creepy… You gorw up and so should the music and the audience.
April 14, 2017 @ 2:53 pm
By the way, I’m a little surprised you didn’t see this possible move back to country coming. With all the bad publicity she received last year, I had a feeling she would want to be somewhere more stable. Being the biggest pop star in the world and always in the gossip columns isn’t that place. Also, writing a song for Little Big Town and showing up at the CMAs seemed to show signs of wanting to be back in country.
April 14, 2017 @ 3:06 pm
I’ll believe it when I see it. I still think Taylor is set on world domination, and the pop lane is the way to get there. I’ve always fully expected for her to come back to “country,” or at least more singer-songwriter stuff later in her career. She;s said she would like to do that in the future. I just didn’t expect that turn so quickly.
April 15, 2017 @ 5:26 pm
Well, if by world domination one means media attention, then certainly Taylor is as big a magnet for attracting it as the music industry has seen this century (is that hyperbole?).
But that media attention has come about as the result of her attracting and then dumping guys and then writing about it, and by telling off the haters (“Mean”; “Shake It Off”) who question her talents and abilities. At the risk of sounding like a hater (I’m actually a dispassionate observer when it comes to Ms. Swift), I think she still has a lot of work to do when it comes to talent and ability, which means not only writing songs that reflect a mature outlook (she is, after all, 27, not still 17), but also (and most especially) really working on gaining range in terms of voice. If there is one thing that Taylor has been hammered on time and time again, it’s that her voice isn’t all that great. She can make it better, but she has to really work at it, and fast.
As for going back to country, continuing into pop (but with some twang), or a combination of the two, perhaps Taylor can take a big cue from one of those women she claims as an influence, Linda Ronstadt, who after all still pretty much owns that gray line between country and pop when it comes to the womenfolk. If Taylor can learn from Linda what a lot of women, such as Trisha Yearwood, have learned, then we can start talking about her as a really great singer of her generation like Linda was to hers.
April 16, 2017 @ 6:55 pm
Linda Ronstadt!!!! Yes!!! Every album she released from Heart Like A Wheel went multi platinum even up into the 90s!!! Of course she also knew ho to pick good songwriters.
And this is exactly where Shania went wrong. She went to much in one direction and lost the original fan base, and also ended up in self-parody with some of her songs. Not that I ever really was that into her, too much punctuation in her song titles.
But you are exactly right this where Swift could go off the rails. And I agree she needs to make time for voice lessons because if she doesn’t Beyonce and Adele are going to crush her long term if she can’t sing. Tepid pop singers don’t last much beyond a decade if that.
The exception being Madonna who somehow managed to get enough lessons for a half decent voice in Evita because normally she has a VERY bland vocal ability even if her phrasing in fun and fitted to the music. Also she totally owned everything she did in the 80s and 80s whereas today stars always seem to have some excuse or response for the tabloid stuff they get involved in.
April 14, 2017 @ 3:21 pm
Well, we’ll see. In the meantime, I’m not holding my breath.
April 14, 2017 @ 3:56 pm
“The major pop star we should be fully expecting to go country right now is not Taylor Swift, but Justin Timberlake”
Saw him perform with Chris Stapleton.
Immediate conclusion: Best skip “going country” Justin.
sweet on stuart
April 14, 2017 @ 4:06 pm
I have nothing but admiration for TS. She drives her own career and does nothing without a plan. But that’s ok. Every artist needs a plan. If she wants to record a tune or two that’s country on an otherwise pop album, she can. She is someone who will become a more mature artist as time goes by and someday when she’s closer to 30-35 she will probably release something that all the pundits and naysayers would never have believed possible.
I think most people are curious to see the trajectory of her career. I know I am.
April 14, 2017 @ 4:51 pm
I guess this all depends on what this sound engineer considers country. If the so called sound engineer thinks Sam Hunt is country then her country sounding songs won’t be very country. I never really considered her country anyways.
April 14, 2017 @ 6:20 pm
Most acts being played on the radio ain’t “country” anyways.
April 15, 2017 @ 4:46 am
I remember fondly the days when the comment section despised her and didn’t compare her favorably to other non-country contemporary singers in a battle of the bad. Frankly, I will take bro country over her. At least, they tried country themes (poorly, of course) over teen pop and themes for precocious white bread teenage girls whose biggest problem in life revolved around a broken fingernail.
Just no. And I won’t give her any credit for finally admitting that she was pop. She admitted it after years of dominating and ravishing country music for massive financial gain. She inflicted a large amount of destruction on my genre. That is like thanking the locusts for not eating the wheat when they already ate the corn and grain. You aren’t thanking them. You are just thankful they are gone.
April 15, 2017 @ 7:02 am
The grass is greener on the other side. People start to forget about her shortcomings now that her songs are not constantly played on country stations. It also helped that she finally acknowledged in 2014 that she is a pop artist and stopped trying to pass off her music as country. And to those folks who have softened their views towards her I say, be careful what you wish for.
I used to browse the Country Weekly forums from around 2000 until they shut down. I saw the same thing happen there regarding Shania Twain. Initially many of the posters there were mainstream traditionalists who listened to guys like Alan Jackson and George Strait, and they despised Shania. Then as the years went on many of them softened their opposition to her, perhaps as a result of not hearing her pop sound and her shitty voice on country stations regularly any more.
Anyway my opinion of Taylor has not changed.
April 16, 2017 @ 7:02 pm
I think in Swift’s case it is a result of her being one the few female voice ever played on country radio now. During Shania’s day you still have Tisha, Patty Loveless, Lorrie Morgan, The DIxie Chicks to counterbalance and say uh…. that is not “real” country… here is “real” country. Taylor does have any push back like that so there is no need for her to change her sound or try and actually be more country. The wolf can wear the sheep’s clothing and people are none the wiser.
Also the mono-genre is growing in mainstream music so all genres are essentially starting to sound the same.
April 16, 2017 @ 6:58 pm
Also she may have in other words admitted she was going pop but I still hold her accountable for not admitting she was always pop in the first place. That is was really peeves me like she didn’t apologize for screwing over the genre to begin with her pop stuff. She just left and acted like the first half of her career never happened or had any effect on the genre she helped destroy further.
April 15, 2017 @ 4:01 pm
She can obviously do whatever she likes. When she writes a great country song, applaud. When she doesn’t, easy enough to ignore. It’s not like radio or the record companies have a lock. She’s a genuine talent, whatever you want to call it, and I agree with everyone who says it’ll be interesting to see how she matures past using her past hook-ups for money-making and moral preening.
April 17, 2017 @ 6:25 am
I think this is a “wait and see.” Remember back in the 1990s that Shania released a double album with the same songs, one album with pop versions and the other with country? She was serving two audiences and the results were fairly decent. It is a “win-win” for Nashville and its musicians if Taylor, Justin or whomever decides to record an album here, whether it is country or pop. I hope with so many superstars and Hollywood moving here that the paparazzi does not follow.
April 17, 2017 @ 3:39 pm
TS is a genius!
Just think, a decade ago she advanced the destruction of country radio like no one before her, paving the way for the bro country plague. The trap was set.
Then she abruptly cut ties and became the biggest thing in poop… err, pop.
Now the lines between country and poop are indistinguishable. The stage is set for her to rule the mono-genre.
And she’s hungry for the souls of all the brainwashed idiots who care neither about the quality nor authenticity of the music they half-listen to.
April 17, 2017 @ 3:47 pm
Yes but she has one thing against here the Beyonce Stans who cry racism at every damn turn, if she starts trump Beyonce there will be some kind of riots on the blogosphere.
