First and foremost, we want to give a HUGE congratulations to Taylor for shattering all predictions with 1.28 million copies of 1989 sold in the first week!!! She is now the first artist EVER to have had three separate weeks of selling over a million copies! If you haven't bought the album yet, stop reading this and go buy it right now so we can help Taylor break even more records!

In other mind-blowing news, Taylor made the official announcement for the 1989 WORLD TOUR last week! It will kick off in May and some tickets are already on sale. Visit TaylorSwift.com for all the latest info and we'll continue to update you on tour news each week. We can't wait!!!!!!
The CMA Awards aired last week, and though Taylor was nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year, she unfortunately did not win. We discuss the CMA's interesting choice to bring in Megan Trainor and Ariana Grande to perform, in what appeared to be an attempt to fill Taylor's absence. If you watched the award show, tweet us your thoughts!
Blank Space Discussion: Because 1989 as a whole is so amazing, the only way we could possibly attempt to review it is by tackling one song per episode. We decided to start with Blank Space this week since it's Taylor's latest single. Funny story, we recorded this on Sunday 11/9 and predicted on the episode that Taylor would be dropping the music video this week. The next morning, she did! So tune in next week for our discussion of the sassy, hilarious, epic video for Blank Space.
