“ME!” is about the story of a person who just broke up. Even though Taylor admitted being hard to comprehend, she assured that her exes would not find someone who loves them as sincerely as she used to.

 

“It’s about not feeling like you’re replaceable. We’ve sent so many messages that there’s a better version of us on a social media app, with better abs, in a better vacation spot. You’re the only one of you — that’s it. There’s just you,” the blonde Grammy winner said.

 

“The 29-year-old pop star thanked fans on Twitter for helping the footage to break the record.

The Codes Behind The Song “ME!”

 

Taylor Swift’s loyal fans wondered the code ‘4.26’ on the singer’s social media. The numbers referred to the release date of “ME!” Clip.

 

    A pink telephone: The scene showing the singer picking up the pink phone reminds Swifties of the clip “Look What You Make Me Do.” We may see the diva full of cheerfulness

 

    Lover: Taylor Swift looks girly in the clip. But there is a neon sign saying ‘lover’ in one of the clip’s scenes. Some Swifties assume that word can be either Swift’s next song or album.

 

    Dixie Chicks: In one of the clip’s scenes, you can see a room full of paintings. One of them is a picture of three women in black. That’s the painting of Dixie Chicks, one of the most popular country groups.

 

Does the picture in the clip indicate the upcoming collaboration between the group and Taylor Swift? Or the pop star will return to country music that paved the way for her fame?
