Swift Power

Taylor Swift plays a significant role in women’s empowerment in the music industry. Taylor Swift has faced many challenges, including conflicts with her record label and fundamental societal problems.

First, some of Taylor’s first hit albums have been sold off to men multiple times. For example, Scooter Braun bought some albums for 300 million dollars, giving him the rights to Taylor’s first six recordings. Later on, in 2020, Scooter Braun sold 100% of the rights to Shamrock Holdings. Both sold off without Taylor’s acceptance, nor did she make any money from these sales. Taylor Swift had begged many times for her rights, though she couldn’t do much about the situation. Instead of being caught up in the case, Swift demonstrated resilience and worked her way around this problem. She re-recorded her six stolen albums with “Taylor’s Version” to emphasize it’s her work.

Taylor Swift’s lyrics hold powerful meanings, fighting negative topics and everyday problems. Not only does Taylor emphasize women’s empowerment, but she also spreads awareness about other themes such as LGBTQ+, social, race, and gender equality. Her lyrics from the song “You Need to Calm Down” read, “I rose from the dead, I do it all the time,” show self priority and encourage others never to let someone get in their way. The song “Look What You Made Me Do” is from the Reputation album. In her song “You Need to Calm Down,” her lyrics state “Like can you just not step on our gowns,” as in women are strong and are resilient to men. “We all know now, we all got crowns, you need to calm down” means that everyone is equal and should be accepted.

In conclusion, Taylor is an inspiring figure for everyone, especially young girls. Despite the fact she is loved by most, people still make comments like, “You date too many people; you’re only using men for inspiration for songs,” or “All you write about is men,” she stays strong and resilient, which teaches many young people a valuable lesson. Taylor has also won various awards such as best female artists, best pop albums, and best country albums.
