I never liked Taylor in Pop but I still believe her Grammy days aren’t over yet. I still wish that the album is really lyrically great like she’s saying it is.
I hope someday Taylor makes a great return to her country roots. With great country music and her popularity she could easily win quite a few Grammys in Country genre since it’s a lot easier and way less competition there.
We Want Yee-Haw Taylor Swift BackApril 26, 2019 at 2:50 pm #1202868465

Her lead singles ranked: 1. Mine (A+) 2. Love Story (A) 3. Look What You Made Me Do (C+) 4. We Are Never Getting Back Together (C) 5. Shake It Off (F) 6. Tim McGraw (F) 7. ME! (F)
The worst ranking in the world!</p>
It’s like that
1. Love Story
3. Tim McGraw
4. We Are Never Getting Back Together
5. Shake It Off
7. Look What You Made Me DoApril 26, 2019 at 1:37 pm #1202868383
Btw, Taylor just went live and said she wanted to just have fun and create something catchy and upbeat and the bridge was actually Brendon’s idea with spelling and everything…I think this was probably the most upbeat and catchy song on the album that’s why she released it. But I think the real Grammy contender is going to be the second single which will be probably be more adult-oriented but denying Me!’s chances in Pop Duo/Group is also delusionalApril 26, 2019 at 1:05 pm #1202868357
Time will tell. Obviously if it becomes an enduring (key word) hit, it will be a general field contender. But the Grammys’ love affair with Taylor has died down considerably over the last few years and those early reviews aren’t helping.
The reviews are quite good considering the song’s qualityApril 26, 2019 at 11:06 am #1202868219

It’s fine, but I was expecting something more mature from Taylor. This sounds like something that would be on the soundtrack on a Disney movie.
Agree but so is kinda Shake It Off and Happy by Pharrel, same with Can’t Stop the Feeling. Shake It Off was mostly liked by kids, teenagers and soccer moms, so it’s not like Taylor went in a complete new direction.</p>April 26, 2019 at 11:03 am #1202868217
Toni Braxton’s last nomination before her win with Babyface for R&B Album was 10-14 years prior. Anything can happen. Mariah has rebuilt her reputation as a songwriter within the industry. “Caution” received some of the best reviews of her career this decade. And she’s staying visible. Performing, receiving accolades, and releasing singles/visuals. She’s never been a huge favorite at the Grammys, but she’s still respected.
I think at this point in her career Mariah gives zero fucks about Grammys. She’s shading them A LOT. And when you are the definition of 90s (an awesome songwriter, incredible singer and performer, a cultural icon) and the Grammys give you 2 Grammys for the entire decade, I think it would be a disgrace to nominate her in her 50s for irrelevant material compared to 90s. Award the talent when you have the chance, not 20 years too lateApril 26, 2019 at 10:51 am #1202868211

I like Taylor Swift a lot and was really, really rooting for her to make a great comeback after the lackluster Reputation (from a sales and critical perspective – I actually thought the album was pretty good). Swift is a fantastic songwriter and I’ll continue to root for her to succeed. That said, “ME!” is horrific. Absolutely horrible. I read one review that called it the “sonic equivalent of a Live, Laugh, Love sign” and I agree – this is just bad. “Taylor Swift’s ME! Is Everything Wrong With Pop Music” https://www.theatlantic.com/entertainment/archive/2019/04/taylor-swift-me-song-review/588118/ “Taylor Swift’s message of self-acceptance can’t reach beyond the superficial” https://www.nme.com/blogs/nme-blogs/taylor-swift-brendon-urie-me-review-2481135 “The song is a showcase for the worst and weakest aspects of Swift’s work, the syrupy kitsch and occasional over-reliance on wordless vocal fillers” https://pitchfork.com/reviews/tracks/taylor-swift-me/ I hope the Grammy’s stay far away from this. Swift is very talented, and I hope the voters can pass on this and wait for something better from her to reward.
I agree with you but overall reception is way way better than for Look what you made me do. I saw a lot of great critic reviews and the GP is really on board and I think it will be quite a hit but yeah based on quality I am really surprised it’s doing that good! But still the song isn’t that bad (for me) and I am still excited for 2nd and 3rd single and of course the album. Maybe she won’t even push Me! to the General Field so we’ll see. She certainly has a chance with another SOLO single (if the hype doesn’t die) that will probably be more acclaimed (Shake It Off–>Blank Space) since she is still a great songwriter so I am not ruling her out! The Grammys nowadays don’t usually care for the lyrics and if this becomes a hit I could see it as a contender in Pop Duo/Group.</p>
Btw at least I am happy that this song is a duet- Brendon kinda saved the song a little, otherwise it would be even more boring and genericApril 26, 2019 at 7:34 am #1202867880
Frontrunner, I don’t think so If it gets in (which it may only because is taylor) I doubt it would come anywhere near winning. SORRY but I can see p!nk and Khalid winning before this ME! Track.. IF theRe is a frontrunner for Duo/Pop it belongs to either Dancing With/Stranger/Sucker/Sunflower.
Dancing with a stranger is 100% out- maybe a nomination but nothing moreApril 26, 2019 at 6:41 am #1202867789
What Kids Bop nonsense is this new single?? The video is a pretty cool psychedelic trip meets Alice in Wonderland, but damn this song sucks.
What’s wrong with all of you? You have extreme expectations for Taylor. This song is as catchy and good as Shake It Off or We Are Never Getting Back Together. It’s hugee!April 26, 2019 at 6:33 am #1202867779
What the fuck!
The song is extremely catchy and their voices are great together!
General Public and everyone I know likes it, it’s breaking records! Shake It Off has also a cringe bridge but still it was huge and nominated for 3 Grammys in a competitive year with 5 nominees. If Me! becomes a hit (It will!) I can see it getting at least ROTY (and of course pop duo/group and music video), hell maybe even SOTY. If Ariana submits 7 Rings, Me! has a better chance of getting in so please just relax and don’t be so uptight- everybody likes it on twitter and instagram- you people are seriously the worst. But we are getting at least 2 more singled from taylor before eligibility closes so maybe she will just send Me! to best pop duo/group.
Plus the critics like it too!
As Taylor once said, just Shake It OffApril 18, 2019 at 5:25 am #1202857704
Taylor has a really good chance this year- this year is so weak and also shorter (it ends in August) and we don’t have any like real SOTY/ROTY material, if she releases a successful acclaimed single she can easily become one of the frontrunners if not the frontrunner- with a successful era Taylor can beat Ariana at the Grammys especially since Ariana hype will fade slowly until the next year while Taylor’s album is gonna be fresher and new with more hype, but that is only IF Taylor is successful and if she promotes and goes back to her Red/1989 pop songwriting!April 14, 2019 at 3:03 pm #1202852808
imagine thinking this
Kendrick Lamar doesnt even really write his songs- I mean he always works with a lot of songwriters who create the beat and flow- Taylor is a great songwriter and everyone knows that- Her catalogue of more than 100 songs can easily prove that
