Grammy Award winner and American singer and songwriter, Taylor Swift turns 31 today! Whether it’s country, pop, or rock, Taylor Swift has always had our hearts and put into words feelings we couldn’t express. Five months after the release of Folklore in 2020, Taylor Swift blessed her fans with Evermore, a sister record to Folklore on December 11, 2020! On her birthday, let’s take a look at 5 of her all-time hits:
I Knew You Were Trouble When You Walked In (2012):
From the album Red, the song that is allegedly about Harry Styles was an instant hit. With some elements of dubstep to go along with her pop music, Taylor Swift absolutely nailed the 2012 hit. The song was at the third position of the Billboards Hot 100 in October and then eventually moved to No.2.

Love Story (2009):
The fairy-tale love melody became the favourite of many since the moment it dropped in 2009. The lead single was No.4 on the Billboard 100! The song about a love that was difficult, and a love that you needed to hide struck a chord with many.

Blank Space (2014):
The classic break up anthem spread like wildfire the minute it dropped. With iconic lyrics like “Darling, I’m a nightmare dressed like a daydream” and music, the song made Taylor Swift the first woman to be replaced by herself at No.1 on the Billboard. Blank Space surpassed Shake It Off from the album 1989.
