Taylor Swift's New Video Didn't Drop as Planned, and Fans Were NOT Friggin' OK
When Taylor Swift goes out of her damn way to post a personal message stating that she's going to drop a new video on Spotify at midnight ET, Taylor Swift had best be dropping a new video on Spotify at midnight ET. Taylor Swift wouldn't mess with us, right?
Well, after a full day of hype, fans were losing their minds when minutes past the supposed release time for the artist's second "Delicate" video, nothing had been posted . . . or had it? Some fans were saying that the video actually was available in certain countries, but we hadn't seen a lot of evidence to support that theory. A few Twitter users posted the link to the place where the video should have been able to be viewed, but no video appeared. Womp, womp.
Of course the video did eventually pop up, thank the music gods, but it wasn't exactly what we were expecting. In the simple, vertically shot video, which appears to be recorded entirely in one take, we get an intimate look at the singer as she gets up close and personal with the camera and shows off her "J" necklace (a nod to boyfriend Joe Alwyn, who the song is rumored to be about). Was it worth the wait? We'll let you reach out to the following impatient Swifties to find out.
