The third single from Taylor Swift’s sixth studio dropped in the early hours of Friday morning.
‘Gorgeous’ is a slow tempo track following Swift’s obsession with another mysterious stranger.
The song sounds stripped back, much like ‘Look What You Made Me Do’, with limited melody to a strong beat; very electronic.
Reminiscent of 1989, the song had potential to be another copy cat pop song released by Taylor.
However, Swift narrowly escapes this moniker adding humour to the piece.
Sticking to the theme making fun of her public face, Taylor mentions her cats, an aspect of her life that is regularly brought up on her social media and in interviews.
“There’s nothing I hate more then what I can’t have, guess I’ll just stumble on home to my cats”.
Overall, the song is a fun pop track. It probably won’t make it into the hall of fame, but will definitely linger in the top 40 for a while, seen as it has already made it’s way to number one.
The song has definitely succeeded in sparking fans’ interests just 21 days before the release of Reputation on November 10.
