Taylor Swift’s “ME!” Sets New YouTube Record and Hints of ‘6+5+2’ Clue?
It comes as little surprise that Taylor Swift’s brand new single “ME!” from upcoming TS7 album set a new record. The surprising fact is that how the exact number of views it amassed on YouTube became a clue of what’s next to come from the new album.
Taylor Swift released the first single off of her upcoming 7th studio album on April 26, 2019. The song, titled “ME!,” is a song about being confident in your own skin and being proud of yourself. “I just want it to be one that makes them feel better about themselves,” told Taylor Swift about the song with ABC news. The song features vocals by Brendon Urie of Panic! At The Disco and has been produced by Joel Little.
According to official reports, “ME” music video, which was released on the same day, managed to gather a staggering 65.2 million views within 24 hours of release on YouTube. This is not all, Amazon Music announced that the single broke two of its records; “most first-day streams” and “on-demand voice requests with Alexa.”
Taylor Swift celebrated these achievements on social media today, thanking her fans. “GUYS!! YOU DID THIS!!!! CANNOT STOP SMILING 💗💗💗💗💗,” captioned Taylor on her celebratory Tweet.
But what caught our attention more is the last part of the Tweet, which says “and 6+5+2=………….”
So, what does ‘6+5+2=’ mean?
In simple mathematics 6+5+2 = 13. Swifties are aware that 13 is a special number for Taylor Swift. Her Twitter handle is @taylorswift13
Taylor Swift’s birthday is on December 13, 1989.
Taylor Swift has also said that most times she has won a major award she was seated “either the 13th seat, the 13th row, the 13th section or row M, which is the 13th letter.”
“I was born on the 13th. I turned 13 on Friday the 13th. My first album went gold in 13 weeks. My first #1 song had a 13-second intro,” says Taylor with MTV. “Basically whenever a 13 comes up in my life, it’s a good thing.”
So, we do know that 13 is Taylor’s special number. Could this have any relation to any upcoming music from TS7?
One possibility is that the 13th track from the upcoming album could be the next release i.e. second single. Another possibility is that 13 could refer to a date on which the next song would be released i.e. May 13th. Or, the next song could be titled “13.”
