Taylor Swift released he sixth studio album, reputation, and the world went crazy over it. So much so that the album sold two million copies in its first week. That’s typical of a Taylor Swift album.
What’s also typical is Taylor likes to take fans on a creative journey through the album. reputation contains 15 tracks all co-written by Taylor. So while the album is being sold as Christmas gifts for young girls and boys everywhere, Taylor is continuing the journey with a look behind-the-scenes of each track.
The most recent track Taylor takes us through is “I Did Something Bad,” written by Taylor, Max Martin and Shellback. The video has Taylor in the studio banging on the piano as she sings verses to the song and it also finds the 28-year-old during writing sessions, tossing around ideas to enhance the song.
“They say I did something bad / Then why’s it feel so good? / They say I did something bad / But why’s it feel so good? / Most fun I ever had / And I’d do it over and over and over again if I could / It just felt so good, good,” Taylor sings in the chorus.
“We have just recorded an idea I got in the middle of the night. It is so stupid,” Taylor says before playing a clip of the sound. “It’s literally straight from my phone.”
And just like that it becomes part of the song.
