   Popstar sensation Taylor Swift just dropped her seventh album “Lover” on Aug. 23, and she is here to show fans a side of her music that has never been heard before. Swift’s previous album showed her fierce side with her warning people not to mess with her, while her new album brings light to her life through love and happiness.

   Swift and her boyfriend Joe Alwyn have been dating for over two years, and Taylor is not afraid to open up about their romance throughout the album. Love song after love song plays as Taylor gushes about Joe through the lyrics. Besides Joe, Taylor sings about the experiences she has been through that have showed her true happiness.

   The album starts off with a song titled “I Forgot That You Existed”, which is Taylor’s way of bringing her out of the ‘Reputation’ album era and closing that chapter in her life. This bubbly soundtrack helps Taylor let go of the past and find peace and serenity.

   Swift knows how to perfectly balance the happiness of the album with some sappy, sad songs. One of the most meaningful songs Taylor has ever written was about her mom, and it is titled “Soon You’ll Get Better”.This track shows the thoughts and anxiety she must face as she is in the doctor’s office for her mom, who has been diagnosed with cancer. To match the pastel color aesthetic of her album, Taylor sings about trying to “brighten up the sky” and hide her sad emotions due to her mom. Taylor continues to hope and pray that soon, her mom will get better.

   Along with the sappy songs, Taylor incorporates multiple upbeat and light-hearted songs into the album. One of the most popular songs on the album is “Me!”, which features singer Brendan Urie from Panic! At The Disco. This song is an upbeat anthem portraying self love and having fun with life. Another fun song on the album is “Paper Rings”, which is a song dedicated to Joe Alwyn where Taylor tells him that although she likes shiny things, she would marry him in paper rings if she could.

    Never in Taylor Swift’s history has she talked about living through a relationship, instead she writes about breakups and getting revenge on the men who did not treat her right.  The fresh sound she just released shows a new perspective of her dating life. Swift opening up about her relationship shows how happy and in love she truly is.

   “Lover” has one of the most meaningful and impactful messages Swift has ever written for her albums. Between the self love she portrays, to the love she shares with other people, this album is full of love. It is everywhere. The last lyric on the last song of the album is “You Are What You Love”, which perfectly wraps up the entire idea and meaning behind the album. Taylor Swift has once again crafted a work of art and shared it with the world.
