Last night, Taylor Swift gave us an intimate and memorable concert in our own living rooms! Last September, she performed her album Lover in Paris and filmed the whole thing. Who knew the footage would come in handy during a pandemic? Taylor, obvi. The never before seen footage was released to the world in a 40 minute experience. All I can say is that I wanted an encore!
The concert started off with her performance of “Me!” and “The Archer.” Next, a stripped down version of “Death by a Thousand Cuts,” Cornelia Street,” “The Man,” and “Daylight.” Then she topped the show off with “You Need To Calm Down” and my personal favorite, “Lover.”
We weren’t the only ones who stayed up way past their bedtime to hear her sing!

Not only was the concert experience a great call for viewing purposes, but also marketing purposes. Her album spiked to Top 3 on iTunes charts nine months after it was released. Genius.
If you weren’t able to catch the City of Lover show, it’s now on Disney + and Hulu. Let us know what you think of the show on Twitter!
