It’s definitely better than “Me” but is far from her strongest songs and also far from the highs of Reputation. The production is the only redeeming quality. Chorus is lazy, some of the lyrics are cringe, and she has the chanting little girl sound to her voice which I hate.
Having said that, if it and it’s parent album are a big hit then yeah it’s a contender in the pop categories. The lyrics do have a social message so could show up in SOTY as well.June 14, 2019 at 5:02 am #1202937276

You Need To Calm Down is a little better than ME. The production is ace, but the lyrics…chile. I’m disappointed because it feels like Taylor is regressing with her songwriting skills. Hopefully it will probably grow on me.
im honestly gonna be more mad if the album comes out and there were better songs that she could release as the singles
We all know this is happening. There’s no way the entire album will be as bad as ME and YNTCD lyrically.June 14, 2019 at 7:23 am #1202937597
This will be her worst album, lol. As saturated as the 1989 era was, as soon as you heard Shake It Off or Blank Space or even Bad Blood, you knew they were instant hits. These songs she’s putting out now AINT IT.
These two new songs are far worse than her previous first/second singles.

I really had high hopes for Taylor’s new album, but so far the songs suck. Maybe she should go back to her country roots.June 14, 2019 at 7:52 am #1202937620
You need to calm down>me!

Just baaaad people…
Thanks to Taylor Swifts and her dedicated fanbase, creative artists like Billy Eilish, Lorde, Carly Rae Jepsen can’t redeem the dying genre of pop music enough!
Taylor Swift is like the Eminem of pop. They do have technical skills, but lately they don’t even try to put their hearts and soul into their music, and thus making it so bland, pretentious and manufactured.June 14, 2019 at 2:04 pm #1202938224
Pitchfork tore her ass UP!June 14, 2019 at 9:30 pm #1202938512
Pitchfork tore her ass UP!
And when she says “shade never made anyone less gay,” she adopts slang with queer black origins in an attempt to create a mic-drop moment, but ends up sounding like another corporation proving they’re “down for the cause” during Pride Month.

Pitchfork sometimes goes out of its way to give harsh reviews to some songs to the point they lose all of their credibility. Most of the time they give bad reviews to almost every song. Literally the only songs I remember them praising this year are Shallow and TUN, probably because their appeal were undeniable at the time of release.
I don’t like this new song, but that review is over-the-top clickbait.June 15, 2019 at 12:38 am #1202938632

Let’s be real dude, Pitchfork gave your most successful album a 2.8/10. If I were you, I wouldn’t even bother to read any other articles.
Don’t even bother to read Pitchfork, it’s one of these rare sites like The Neddle Drops, that will tear these generic pop music apart with no mercy. Pop fans should keep them in the avoid list and continue to suck on to Billboard magazine and Rolling stones.
