The 1989 Era: 1 year after

Today (August 18th, 2015), it marks one year since Taylor Swift hosted a livestream through Yahoo.com, in which she revealed her lead single “Shake It Off”, its music video and announced the release of 1989, her first official and documented pure pop album. Since then, many things have happened, and i thought 1 year into the era would be an amazing time to have a recap of all of it. I hope you enjoy:

Album: 1989 (release date: October 27th, 2014)
