Taylor Swift's final single from her 7th studio album of the same name is "Lover." The release of the title track made fans from all over the world love-struck and swooning with its dreamy lyrics, slow acoustics, and country-pop feel.

Upon its release at midnight ET of August 16th, the romantic ballad easily reached multiple No 1s on iTunes charts around the world, making it her fourth consecutive song from her "Lover" album to do so.

The lyric video, that seemingly showed scenic clips featuring Taylor Swift and her beau being projected on a white screen, is also trending on YouTube - already gaining more than 2.5 million views in just 12 hours after it premiered. Because of this, the anticipation for the official Music video just keeps getting higher and higher. On its first day, "Lover" became the most pre-saved album on Apple Music.

Multiple hours before and after its release, the internet buzzed with excitement prompting the hashtags #LoverAtMidnight and #LoverOutNow to dominate the trends with more than 130,000 tweets and they were filled with varying reactions about the song.

A hint of the old Taylor

Aside from the warm reception from the general public, 'swifties' who have witnessed the evolution of Taylor Swift's music style were also delighted to listen to "Lover".

Many noticed how the vibes of the song, with its hazy guitar sounds and sweet storytelling, bring nostalgic feelings similar to Swift's old and classic releases such as "White Horse" and "Begin Again".

It was also applauded for its impactful bridge. It is a lyrical masterpiece that's addictive and mesmerizing with a tune that you just can't get out of your head. Some even said it's like being taken to "Bridge City", including the singer-songwriter herself who told Vogue in an interview that the song "has one of my favourite bridges.

I love a bridge, and I was really able to go to Bridge City." Some people also resorted to making quirky memes to show appreciation for it.

It was also noted by some fans that "The Bridge" could be the perfect vows to say in a wedding, all thanks to the lyrics being romantically poetic and earnest.

"With every guitar string scar on my hand, I take this magnetic force of a man to be my lover," Swift sings in "The Bridge." It's truly iconic and felt like the cherry on top of this beautifully-written love song. Buzzfeed reported, "I'm sure you'll hear it at every wedding you attend for the rest of your life, as you should."

With the timeless sound of "Lover", it was said that it could also be a wedding song, perfect for the slow first dance of a bride and groom, or for the walk down the aisle. With such a slow, sweet tune, and lyrics that make one swoon, I really couldn't agree more!

'Lover' MV and full album release

On August, Thursday 22nd at 5 PM eastern standard time, the long wait will be over as the official music video of "Lover" will finally be released during a live Q&A session on YouTube. This will be just a day ahead of the full-album release on August 23rd.
