Exclusive: Taylor Swift’s 2017 Album Is All About #BlackLivesMatter

Taylor Swift may have been accused of being racist after her videos for “Shake it Off” and “Wildest Dreams,” but she’s going to prove that she is “down with the bros” on her new album. Pop Music Scandal has learned that Taylor Swift is recording an album with themes related to the Black Lives Matter movement.

Swift doesn’t plan to say “Black Lives Matter” directly, but the themes of the movement cover the album. We are told that the album is similar to Bruce Springsteen’s September 11, 2001-themed The Rising, which didn’t mention the disastrous day directly. Swift plans to recruit a bunch of rappers on the album, including Eminem, Vanilla Ice, Darrell McDaniels (Run DMC), Mike D (Beastie Boys), and even Macklemore. She is seeking help from Jay-Z and Kendrick Lamar as well.

Swift may turn her new album project into a visual album like Beyonce did with Lemonade. Only two song titles have been revealed so far. “Colored People of Color” has something to do with people who use the term “Colored People” to describe people of color. The other song, “Ode To The Repressed” may be the first single. It has a sort of rock vibe to it. So far, there isn’t much of Swift’s country trademark on her new album.

Swift is trying to keep this album as private as possible. We are told that it will come as a surprise release. Swift wants to release the album this summer, but her record company Big Machine Records wants to release it closer to the holiday season to attract more sales. This album could either be a real smash or a real joke.

    How could you possibly even have access to this information? If the writers of Pop Music Scandal ever want to be done reading the comments of people who don’t believe your fabricated stories (and these comments do exist, believe me) then start providing back-up! Seriously how could ever expect to gain credibility without support from real sources? Your kidding yourself and your readers when you can’t even deliver a fact-based and supported story. Not to mention the abusing of talent the writers of this website continue doing. Seriously though, the writers here are insulting themselves as journalists when they reduce their writing talents to writing about things that are downright derogatory, delusional and untrue. SUPPORT, SUPPORT, SUPPORT!! You guys wonder why the mainstream doesn’t support your articles? It’s because they have no support! Also, this article is not okay. Your literally creating lies about a real, prevalent social movement that has real heart and passion behind it. For you to objectify a very meaningful cause and make it the base line for some fake article about what a privileged pop star is doing isn’t okay. It’s disrespectful! Not to mention your suppose song titles sound like your trying to make a joke out of them. Again, this isn’t just some silly Hollywood cause, it’s real life! Seriously you guys should consider cleaning it up!
