Remember when Shawn tweeted he wrote a song about someone and then we heard that little snippet of his one night stand song and everyone lost their damn minds? That was wild. I’m so excited for his new album and all the extra fan theories because they’re so entertaining and funny to me.
Oh my god I’m so excited for the new album too! I cannot wait for more Ruin’s and Honest’s and Bad Rep’s and NO PROMISES’S FUCKKKKK
I literally need the album already especially because people are saying its better than red and that taylor is so in love I NEEEED it. I cannot wait any longer how am i going to make it through these 10 days
red was the first album that came out after I started stanning taylor and I have such a connection to that time bc it was so new and exciting for me and I literally cannot believe it was 5 years ago bc I was literally 13 years old and a damn middle schooler and now I’m here waiting for my third album release and I’m 18 and a senior in high school wow
it…literally.,..just hits me at random times that we get a new fucking album next week and like…it doesnt just hit me it fuckin hits me like a god damn bulldozer running me over at 70 miles an hour i…cannot wait i just cant i cant nope
I just wanna thank this man name Min Yoongi a.k.a Suga, for producing some of the best music I have ever heard. You guys don’t even understand how much I love his producing and composing skills. It hits my soul so much, because they are so freakin’ damn amazing! Let Me Know, JUMP, Tomorrow, and their new upcoming song ‘BANGTAN DISS’ is just so fuckin’ amazing! Like bruhh…bae bruhh….SUGAA BEAR…. ;A; <3 XD klkfnlashlkafjklgjfnvlkvhagklad;BANGTAN DISS IS MA JAM RIGHT NOW!CANNOT FREAKIN’ WAIT UNTIL THEIR NEW ALBUM COMES OUT! YASS! SLAY BANGTAN! MIN SUGA (swag) I love you man. <3 Continue on producing some amazing songs for BANGTAN! <3 :D
honestly fly away is such a fucking good song. like it’s a solid 10/10 on all spectrums. vocally it’s astounding, as their harmonies are spot on during the chorus and i know 5sos are always good with their harmonies, but this is grade a level kind of shit. calum and michael made this song their fucking bitch vocally. there’s so much confidence in their voices when they sing the words. which brings me to the lyric content and how amazing it it. literally this song is so fucking positive and it has the right balance of simplicity and profoundness that makes this song one of their better songs lyrically. calum and luke have ALWAYS been good at this, as they wrote beside you and disconnected together (two of their best songs lyrically). and finally, the instrumentals; right off the bat the guitars are so prominent and you can hear them soooo well, but they don’t overshadow the bass or the drums and that’s GOOD because ashton motherfucking irwin is over here fucking KILLING it on the drums. (as per usual tbh). the bass is solid and what people seem to forget is that a band is nothing without a good bassline and percussion. this song is fucking epic and it literally rocks my god damn socks off. i am so proud of this song and i cannot wait to hear the album.
I honestly cannot wait for Ryan to release his album. I know we’ve been waiting for AGES and sometimes I’m like boy u better not be messin with my poor worn heart 😒 But honestly, tell me one fucking time he’s disappointed us with his music??? Like?? I cannot think of anything?? He’s obviously putting a lot of time and effort into this new project. Whenever he’s ready with it, it’ll be a masterpiece and I’ll be damn proud of him. ❤🙌
What the fuck is wrong with people? Literally all Taylor has done is confirm that she wrote a song but now there are headlines asking if she’s really a ‘mean girl’ and people saying she’s horrible and fake and even fans saying they’re not sure about her anymore. Like, what?? I don’t understand how people can be so fickle, so easily swayed by the media and by Calvin Harris, a man who blocked one of his ex-girlfriends from performing the songs they worked on together, but is now acting as though butter wouldn’t melt in his mouth and going on about how you should leave your ex-partners alone (despite the fact that Taylor hasn’t once commented on Calvin since they broke up, while he keeps swinging backwards and forwards in what he says about Taylor). And it’s like any time Taylor does ANYTHING which someone doesn’t like (and that doesn’t mean its a bad thing that she’s done, but simply something that people twist into being bad) everyone forgets all the millions of wonderful things sh does ALL. THE. TIME. They forget the children’s hospitals she visits. They forget the fans – and random people – she helps out. They forget all of the many, MANY people who have met her (including other celebrities) who talk about how lovely and genuine she is in person, how kind, how easy to talk to. They forget all the stories from people who have talked about the wonderful things she’s done specifically avoiding the press. They forget about all the money she’s donated, all the words of encouragement and support she’s given out. They forget who she is.
I honestly can’t wait for Taylor to release another album, because every time she does, everyone suddenly and miraculously remembers how much they love her music, and they see what a wonderful person she is again. I mean frankly the hater’s opinions aren’t worth a damn, but I cannot wait for everyone who’s claiming her career is finished to see her succeed, AGAIN. Because she always does, and it’s the haters who end up bitter, frustrated and jealous, every damn time, while Taylor just soars on to greater heights.
I first have to say that I absolutely love this album. It seriously surpassed all of my expectations. If I weren’t a 1D fan and I heard these songs, I’d be pretty shocked. Every song is so unique and so special. I can see why they are so proud of this album. It truly seems to represent them and who they are now as adults. This album 100% shows off each of their strengths as vocalists. I honestly love it so, so much and I am so incredibly proud. Now onto my initial thoughts on the tunes:
*This doesn’t include the singles/songs that were officially released early because they each got their own special post when they first came out*
I am so happy with Amber. That girl is doing the damn thing post Glee. I cannot wait to see Lady Marmalade. That was my jam back in the day and to have Patti, Kim, and Amber on the same stage singing that classic is a dream come true. Ad she is on a track with Boyz to Men…These icons know how special her voice is and they are all fans of hers and she them…I cannot wait for that Album to drop….I am so happy about Amber.
