No, Taylor Swift Fortnight has nothing to do with Fortnite


    Today, April 19, 2024, could be one of the best days of all time. It’s Friday for starters, and who doesn’t love that? We just got the news that the Amazon Prime series Fallout has been renewed for a second season and, most importantly, Taylor Swift’s new album has just been released.

    The Tortured Poerts Department: The Anthology, in addition to being an absolute album title, is also a hit. Bring the world’s biggest pop star to her most comfortable, conversational style while aiming for old flames. But you’re not here to listen to me try to criticize Swift, you’re here because at least some people seem to think that the title track ‘Fortnight’, featuring Post Malone, has something to do with the Epic Games battle. real game, Fortnite. I’m here to tell you that no, it has nothing to do with that.

    Where does the evidence come from that suggests this is the case? Google Trends, of course. It turns out that people specifically search for ‘Fortnite Taylor Swift.’ Is this just a simple misspelling of the title song? People want to know that T Swift herself loves nothing more than downing a couple of Victory Royales in a night? The jury is out. But fear not, as I have endeavored to analyze a whole two sections of Fortnight’s lyrics to see if these claims have any merit.

    “They were supposed to fire me, but they forgot to come get me, I was a functional alcoholic, until no one noticed my new aesthetic.”

    Ok, then, maybe, maybe Taylor is a secret Avatar fan and is devastated that no one noticed her sickly new Aang skin. Unfortunately, the lyrics above seem to suggest a slightly deeper meaning. Forget it then.

    Perhaps the most important clue you could point to are those first two lines of the chorus.

    “And for fifteen days (Fortnite, obviously), there we were, running forever, until sometimes you ask about the weather.”

    Is this an indication that Taylor and her boyfriend Travis Kelce enjoy nothing more than playing a bit of a duo on a lazy weekend? The world’s most powerful couple racing across the map, Travis nervously asks Taylor if they’re about to meet in the storm’s damaging purple hue. It is an excellent visual image; They are like us; Unfortunately, I don’t think that’s the case.

    As much as you want it to be a thing, it’s not a thing. Taylor’s lyrics don’t reference any fond memory she has of having 10 elims in a hallway. It’s just her usual heartfelt lyrics about real life problems.

    Maybe this was all a big misunderstanding. People may not know how to spell fortnight. Is this what Epic Games’ ever-popular Battle Royale title has done in the minds of today’s kids? I fear that may be the case.

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but it’s been a fun little ride…right?
