Taylor Swift recently announced her move to the pop genre, leaving her country roots behind. This is evident in her latest album, 1989, which has a more mature and edgy sound than her previous releases. “Blank Space”, with its strong beats, catchy lyrics, and accompanying music video emulates this transition. The video especially shows this evolution because it is not fun and upbeat like her previous videos. Instead, Swift portrays an insane girlfriend with rather intense mood swings who can be a danger to herself and others, creating a dark and erratic tone for this video. It is an immense change for Swift’s music, demonstrating her growth as an artist.
