Taylor Swift – I Knew You Were Trouble Review
Taylor Swift seems bent on changing gears with the release of the single ‘I Knew You were Trouble.’ The track was the third single released from her fourth CD ‘Red,’ which has been out in the market since 2012. Just like most of her previous singles, the song also easily and quickly climbed music charts.
The song signifies a musical transition for the country music artist. It features pop music style of vocals on top of heavy electronic production. This popstep track was written by Swift in collaboration with Shellback and Max Martin.
The track talks about the rudiments of being frustrated with one’s self due to a heart break. The lyrics describe a situation when a person still proceeded to go on despite warnings from his/her own instincts about how the other person may not do any good romantically. Speculations came out over the possible source of Swift’s inspiration. Could it be because of ex-boyfriends John Mayer or Harry Styles of One Direction?
Interestingly, the song generated positive reviews from music critics. Most of them underlined the piece’s mainstream appeal and the experimental sound of Swift. It is considered as an important track to convey her career into the next level.
