Taylor Swift went from a 14-year-old girl trying to make it to one of the most influential and powerful stars in the world. With 10 Grammy to her name and having sold more than 40 million albums, with an unbelievable 85.6 million followers on twitter. Love her or hate her, Taylor Swift must have done something right.

Taylor Swift’s family moved to Nashville when she was just fourteen to help her pursue a music career. Inspired by the likes of Shania Twain and Dolly Parton, Swift trained to become the next big country music talent. Learning to play guitar by a local musician, who helped her write her debut hit Lucky You.

Moving away from country music in 2008, pop princess Taylor Swift’s third album Fearless saw her collaborate with John Mayer and Stevie Nicks and the themes of her songs remained that of a teen star, writing songs about fairy tales, such as Love Story.

In 2012, Taylor Swift changed again. Her album Red received mainstream success as she incorporated more upbeat pop music. Red sold 1.2 million in the first week alone, breaking records as the album became the highest US selling figures in a decade. Red included some of Swift’s greatest hits such as I Knew You Were Trouble and 22. Taylor Swift became loved around the world, and became strong female icon.

And then when it seemed Taylor Swift’s success couldn’t become any greater, she released her fifth studio album, 1989, her first official pop album. Swift’s new sound worked for her, the catchy hooks and celebratory lyrics.

The lead single from 1989 was Shake It Off, other hits included Blank Space and Welcome To New York. Taylor Swift ushered in a new era of pop music and after a hugely successful 1989 World Tour, the world waited to see what global star, American superstar, Taylor Swift would do next.

Many we’re surprised when Swift announced a hiatus from music, in fact she disappeared from the public eye for around two years and though Taylor Swift’s fans remained loyal during that time, Swift came under fierce criticism from the general public. No matter how much Swift wished to be “excluded from the narrative” for a while it seemed she was damned regardless.

Then came her return. After her social media accounts we’re wiped and replaced by short clips of an angry digitalised snake, it became quite clear that long gone was the 1989 Swift. Confirmed by her lead single for upcoming album Reputation which contained the lyric “the old Taylor can’t come to the phone anymore” “why?” “Cause she’s dead”.

But the “Old Taylor” may not have completely disappeared, all four of her newly released tracks have gone straight to the top of the charts including Look What You Made Me Do, Ready For It?, Gorgeous and Call It What You Want. Taylor Swift remains as loyal to fans as she ever has been, having hosted an intimate concert in London for her biggest UK fans including a meet and greet. Here at Villiers, we have no doubt that a Taylor Swift 2018 tour will be her biggest one yet.

Taylor Swift has been making surprise appearances in shops selling her album since its release building anticipation for a tour announcement, including a hugely popular pop up booth in the UK.
