There is no question that Taylor Swift has transcended from country sweetheart to mainstream pop goddess. Gone are the batting eyelashes, chequered shirts and lightweight sing songs. Taylor Swift is every bit as powerful as any other star on planet pop, her haul at the recent Billboard Music Awards will show you that. 
 
Track of the Day - Taylor Swift - Bad Blood ft. Kendrick Lamar
Now as we all know, timing is very important in music and this is why it is no surprise that Ms Swift swiftly (lol) followed up her massive trophy haul by revealing a brand new video for album track ‘Bad Blood’. All it takes is one watch to realise what Swift went for with this production, namely, Hollywood scale mega brilliance. Long story short, Taylor Swift (with her gang of noble featurettes in tow) have laid a marker down for all artists who operate in-and-amongst the upper echelons of the music world. Sure, you don’t have to go big at all times, an unplugged set here and a polaroid photoshoot there is all good and well, however, when you do go big you MUST GO BIGGER THAN BIG to keep up.
 
Sure, the lyrics may be ever-so-slightly dubious at times and the boxing scene may be one of the most lacklustre fight scenes in the history of film (or music), but let’s not forget that this right here is a pop hit designed to travel the globe, infecting the minds of teenagers everywhere and without a shadow of a doubt this is what it will do. It is brilliant in its over-the-topness; suffice to say we are fans.
 
We also love the fact that Kendrick Lamar’s feature is so much more than a cameo; rather than popping up for a token 16 bar verse, the muchly lauded rapper contributes throughout, it’s more a duet than anything which only adds to the verve. 
 
Bad Blood is lifted from Taylor Swift’s album ‘1989’. Click here to learn more…
