LOOK: Did Taylor Swift just drop a HUGE hint about her new music?

Friday, May 1, 2020


The time has finally come, Swifties! After all of our theories about new music, Taylor Swift might have finally given us the biggest hint about what's to come.

We all know that Swift is notorious in giving riddles, and dropping clues about her new projects. And the internet is convinced that her latest selfie is actually a clue for her new album.

 The "Lover" singer posted a simple selfie on her Twitter with the caption, "Not a lot going on at the moment."

Fans immediately pointed out that the caption alone is a reference to Taylor's "22" music video, in which she wears a statement shirt with the same words.




But that’s not all!


A reddit user noticed that a website with a domain “Notalotgoingonatthemoment.com” was created 4 hours before Taylor Swift’s most recent selfie with the same name as her caption.

The website appears to have lyrics to a new song, it writes “ 22 wrongs (won't make write)” and “It’s a dark day in heaven when Karma comes to bite.”
Notalotgoingonatthemoment.com-Taylor-Swift-metroscenemag
Swift hasn't claimed the website yet, but if you remember, the word “Karma” can also be seen in Swift’s “The Man” music video. Do you think Karma will be the name of the album with all her re-recorded music? Or are going to finally have a reputation 2.0?

13 Underrated Taylor Swift Songs You Forgot That Existed

Wednesday, April 29, 2020

Image result for taylor swift lover photoshoot

I'm 'Feeling All the Feelings' says Taylor Swift in a post as she Celebrates Her 13-Year Career.


Well, Taylor Swift considers number 13 to be her lucky number and with her newest album "Lover" receiving a record of twelve nominations at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards, including Video of the Year and Song of the Year, and winning Video of the Year. Taylor Swift is really the lucky one.

In honor of Taylor Swift, here are some of the best and most overlooked Taylor tracks for your pure enjoyment. 


1. Invisible

Image result for invisible taylor swift gif

I mean, everyone knows about the album, but everyone seems to forget about this heartbreaking song about having a crush. I think it's a cute, painful song with a great melody and a great story to listen to — a significant throwback in 7th grade.

2. A Perfectly Good Heart

Image result for A Perfectly Good Heart  taylor swift gif

Do you remember your first heartbreak? This track was released when Taylor was still in her teenage years, and the song perfectly conveys the feelings a young person goes through  the end of their first serious relationship.

3. I’d Lie


Image result for A Perfectly Good Heart  taylor swift gif

This song was never on a T.S album, and I still wonder why on earth Taylor did not released it. There's something about the song that makes me sad whenever I listen to it. I didn't really understand it when I first heard it, but as I got older, this song just got better and better.

4. The Best Day

I don't know about you but whenever this track comes up in a shuffle play-I cry. "Best day" is a track from the album fearless. It is a heartwarming song about how Taylor's father loved her when she was little and continues to love her. Isn't that sweet?

5. Never Grow Up

Image result for never grow up taylor swift gif

I have always considered this track as a sister song of 'The Best Day' from Fearless. Swifties would probably say that 'Never Grow Up' is a dreamy take on childhood innocence. I personally love this track because it serves as a reminder to cherish every moment of love and joy. 

6. Haunted

The album Speak Now has a lot of underrated songs, and I don't understand why. Haunted, is one of my personal favourite track on this album but apparently, it's also one of the most underrated ones. 

7. Stay Stay Stay

Image result for stay stay stay taylor swift gif

This song  never fail to make me smile whenever I listen to it. It's an ultimate bop from the "RED" album, and for the longest time, it makes me believe that love actually does exist. 

8. I Almost Do


Image result for i almost do  swift gif

I Almost Do is a lyrical masterpiece, and I think everyone deserves to hear it at least once in their lifetime. I have no word for this song. Just Listen to it. Period.

9. Clean

Image result for clean taylor swift gif

Taylor wrote this song with Imogen Heap, and it's one of her most powerful songs. The melody and the beat of the song just take you slowly into a peaceful state of mind while the lyrics guide you and tell you to let all the sadness go. This track is just perfect. 

10. This Love


Related image

"This Love" was the very first song written for 1989 and was recorded shortly before the release of Red. Swift described the song as "Like saying goodbye to the past and the previous four albums". 

11. King Of My Heart

Image result for king of my heart taylor swift gif

I have to be honest, this track from the Reputation album grew on me. It wasn't one of my favourite track on the album when it came out, but as I listen to it, the expressiveness of the main vocal took me to heaven. It's a surreal and dreamy song that everyone should listen to. 


12. Daylight


Image result for taylor swift gif

In this track, Taylor is like telling us that it's a new day for a new life. It's a new beginning. I feel Daylight is so underrated for bigger ballads in the album overshadow it, but it's one of my favourites so far. In this song Taylor gives the idea of hope that soon, everyone will see their version of Daylight in their lives.

13. It's Nice to Have a Friend

Image result for taylor swift gif

I was so taken aback the first time I heard "It's Nice to Have a Friend." I listened to the album in order, and it was just one of the most emotional experience after following her music for so many years.

Lana Del Rey's spoken poetry album —Everything we know so far

Wednesday, April 15, 2020

Lana Del Rey  - Metroscene Mag

Lana Del Rey planned on releasing a new spoken word album of "freestyle poetry" back in February. But the date has come and gone. Where is the album, Lana? 

Just when we thought she already forgot about it. The alternative pop singer surprisingly shared new details of the project. Lana's book and seventh album is coming, and here's what we know so far.

Here's what we know


The upcoming album entitled 'Violet Bent Backwards Over The Grass'  will be produced and features music by Jack Antonoff, who co-produced Del Rey's Norman F---ing Rockwell! Which received a Grammy nomination for album of the year in 2019.  Meanwhile, the artwork is a close-up painting of orange fruit hanging from a tree.

The singer revealed these details and the artwork of the album on her Instagram, before promptly deleting the post. 



"50% of the proceeds from the album sales will go to "benefit Native American organizations around the country, whether it was for preserving their rights or trying to help keep their land intact," Lana stated alongside her Instagram post when she first revealed the project.

The Strokes: 'The New Abnormal'—The boys are back in better shape

Monday, April 13, 2020

The Stokes New Abnormal  - Metroscene Mag


Seven years have passed since the indie rock connoisseurs released their last album 'ComedownMachine.' But now that 'The New Abnormal' is available worldwide, can we finally say that the latest album is worth the wait?

Let me assure you right now: The Strokes are back, and they’re in better shape than ever. After a decade of experimentation, The Strokes have found their sweet spot. The New Abnormal is a result of band mates working together in harmony. As such, they have produced one of the most  cohesive albums in their discography.

The New Abnormal garners a few bits and pieces from its predecessors: the transformative
change in sound from First Impressions of Earth, 80s new wave influences from Angles, and consistent melody from Comedown Machine. 

Combine every positive attribute of each album, and you'll get a delightful tracklist of ear-pleasers that welcomes old and new fans alike.

You'll even hear a bit of The Voidz in a few tracks, including The Adults Are Talking—thanks to the perfect blend of synths and garage rock riffs.

The album's first track, The Adults Are Talking, is a perfect opener that serves as an
introduction to the band’s newfound maturity in both sound and lyricism.




With lines such as “They've been saying you're sophisticated they're complainin' overeducated” and “Same shit, a different life you'll get it right sometime”, it’s clear that the rock veterans aren’t just singing about New York City anymore.

The band’s maturity is even more evident in the second-to-last track “Not The Same Anymore”,
where Casablancas delivers the lines in a clear-cut manner, “Don't wanna play that game anymore you'd make a better window, than a door.” You could either interpret such lines as The Strokes wanting to move on from their post-punk revival fame or perhaps as a jab to Alex Turner’s opening lyrics in “Star Treatment” saying he “wanted to be one of The Strokes.”

However, The New Abnormal isn’t a perfect album by any means. The second half of the tracklist could benefit from more upbeat songs, similar to “Bad Decisions” or “Brooklyn Bridge To Chorus”—both of which derive from 80 influences with artists such as Modern English, Billy Idol, New Order, and Cutting Crew. 

The good news is that mellow tones of “Why Are Sunday’s So Depressing” and “Ode To The Mets” are more than enough to make up for it.

The Strokes are no longer the early 20s New Yorkers the world has known for almost two
decades. They’re all grown-up, and so is their music. While it may not be their best album (yet), it’s the band’s most thrilling release since Room On Fire.

Listen to The Strokes and their latest album The New Abnormal, now available on Spotify.

Troye Sivan Releases New Quarantine Anthem ‘Take Yourself Home’

Thursday, April 2, 2020




While everyone is currently feeling anxious and bored because of the pandemic, Troye Sivan on the other hand decided to grace us all with a new track.

Troye Sivan’s new track “Take Yourself Home” is our new stay-at-home anthem for this quarantine period and it’s indeed an anthem that helps us get over our quarantine blues. 

Back to the new music, the song is definitely an emotional one. It starts with a  slow and intimate vocal-focused production, but a beat changes the sound as it goes on. 

“I’m tired of the city / Scream if you’re with me / If I’m gonna die / Let’s die somewhere pretty,” goes the opening line, which also doubles as the song’s chorus.
