Taylor Swift - You Need To Calm Down (Lyric Video)

Speaking about her new single, Taylor said: "I wanted to talk about my new single, You Need to Calm Down. I've observed a lot of people in our society who put a lot of effort in negativity and I was like, 'You need to just calm down, like you're stressing yourself out. This seems like it's more about you than what you're going off about. Like, just calm down.' I really hope you like it!" Speaking about the positive vibe of the album, one person commented: "The positivity, self-love and empowerment of the #Lover era is so refreshing and needed. There’s no room for negativity here." Another person wrote: "The words have such a beautiful meaning it was so easy to memorise them." Some fans were also quick to point out that Brandon Urie hinted at the title of Taylor's new single in the Me! video, as he tells her that she needs to calm down in French.
