Another single from Taylor Swift’s massively popular 1989 has been named, so it’s safe to say it’ll be impossible to drive anywhere without hearing the song, Wildest Dreams, on the radio soon. The big reveal came Wednesday on Twitter with Swift building as much suspense as one possibly can in 140 characters or less.
Of the four singles Taylor Swift’s 1989 has spawned so far, only Style has failed to hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart; Shake It Off, Blank Space, and Bad Blood have all sat at the top spot, according to Billboard, with Blank Space occupying that position for seven weeks and Shake It Off for four. Wildest Dreams will now have its chance to vie for the honor.
Swift’s 1989 singles have covered topics ranging from ignoring the haters to acknowledging betrayal, and her latest single will delve into the anticipation of a relationship’s end. It’s one of Swift’s most mature songs to date. Lyrics include, “I said, ‘No one has to know what we do’ / His hands are in my hair, his clothes are in my room” and “You see me in hindsight / Tangled up with you all night / Burning it down.”
Swift named her latest single on Twitter on Aug. 5.
Just wanted to let you know that the next single from 1989 will be……….. Wildest Dreams.
