Video of the Month for May 2024

Taylor Swift’s new music video from her album The Tortured Poets Department features Post Malone. She directed the music video herself.

Discussing opening track “Fortnight,” which features Post Malone, Swift told Amazon Music that it “exhibits a lot of the common themes that run throughout this album,” one of the biggest being “fatalism — longing, pining away, lost dreams.”

“I think that it’s a very fatalistic album in that there are lots of very dramatic lines about life or death. ‘I love you, it’s ruining my life.’ These are very hyperbolic, dramatic things to say,” she said. “It’s that kind of album.”
