Are you ready for another video from the *new* and not-dead Taylor Swift? Following the release of the videos for “Look What You Made Me Do” and “…Ready For It?” it’s time to say hello to the latest addition. Taylor Swift has just dropped her video for “End Game” — aka, the song featuring Future and a rapping Ed Sheeran.
The song, her now third single off of Reputation, features Swift singing about wanting to be someone’s “end game,” which is yes, a sports allusion! It also has Swift singing about her flaws, coming together with someone who also happens to have a “big reputation” and looking to be their final fling — wherever they might be in the world, on a beach, in a bar, in a hotel room, hanging out with cats, etc. The song also includes one of my favorite verses off of all of Reputation: 🎶”Reputation precedes me / they told you I’m crazy / I swear I don’t love the drama / it loves me” 🎶.
As for the video, we have Swift gallivanting all over the world — Miami, Tokyo, and London — in fancy, shiny cars (and a few yachts). And once again, this video only seems to reinforce the idea that Taylor Swift’s world is very much inspired by Blade Runner — or, at least the overuse of neon lights and futuristic things implies that. Now add in Swift on a motorbike, and we’ve got some Tron vibes, too.
But that’s not the real *big thing* about this video — guys, Swift busts out some dance moves.
No, it’s not a huge choreographed dance number (at least…not yet) but we’re seeing Swift dance more and more with Reputation. She had a few steps during the “Look What You Made Me Do” video, and now we’ve got her swaying back and forth on a yacht! She also does a little Dance Dance Revolution, so, baby steps.
Check out the video, and start planning your own jet-setting adventure across the world. Rapping Ed Sheeran not included.
