FRIDAY afternoon felt so right for all the Swifties in the Philippines as singer-songwriter Taylor Swift released the music video for her dreamy song “Lavender Haze.”
On the other hand, Swifties in western countries were still up at midnight, probably watching and vibing to the newly released video.
Taylor published the music video just after she told her followers to “meet me at midnight” on her Instagram account.
“Lavender Haze” is the first track in her recent “Midnights” album, and she said it was a phrase that was sometimes used in the 1950s describing the feeling of being in love.
After releasing the video, she shared a follow up post for her fans on Instagram.
“This was the first video I wrote out of the 3 that have been released, and this one really helped me conceptualize the world and mood of Midnights, like a sultry sleepless 70’s fever dream,” she said.
Taylor wrote and directed this music video.
She released the “Lavender Haze” music video on the single’s 13th week on the Billboard Hot 100. Her birthday falls on the 13th and she considers 13 her lucky number.
The video also featured the constellations of Taylor and her boyfriend Joe Alwyn’s zodiac signs, which are Sagittarius and Pisces. Swift earlier confirmed that the song is inspired by her romance with boyfriend Joe Alwyn.
Laith Ashley, a transman, was featured in the music video as Taylor’s love interest.
Swifties clearly couldn’t contain how thrilled they were over the newly released music video, as it hit almost 2 million views on Youtube just 3 hours after its release.
It also became one of the top trending topics on Twitter a few hours after the release.
Fans on Twitterverse couldn’t contain their happiness right after the video was released.
A fan expressed her admiration for the visuals, makeup and effects of the new video.
Another fan expressed almost similar thoughts.
Just three months ago, the singer released the music video for “Bejeweled.” It became a hit on TikTok, with people using the song as a background while they strutted their stuff and showed off their moves.
