Sneek Peek at Desire

Been too long not to have a sneeky peak song for our show! So here is one for our Desire show coming up this Saturday!
Taylor Swift - Bad Blood ft. Kendrick Lamar
Here are some song facts for you to enjoy...

(from Wikipedia)
"Bad Blood" is a song by American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift, from her fifth studio album 1989 (2014). Swift co-wrote the song with its producers Max Martin and Shellback, with a remixed version featuring additional writing and guest vocals from American rapper Kendrick Lamar. The Lamar version was released by Republic Records on May 17, 2015 as the fourth single from 1989. The lyrics of "Bad Blood" describe betrayal by a close friend. The album version is the eighth track of 1989.

The song reached number one in Australia, Canada, Israel, New Zealand, Scotland, and the United States, becoming the third song from 1989 to do so. The accompanying music video was directed by Joseph Kahn and features an ensemble cast. The video previously held the 24-Hour Vevo Record with 20.1 million views, before being surpassed by Adele's "Hello". It won Video of the Year and Best Collaboration at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards. The song received a nomination for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance while its music video won Best Music Video at the 58th Grammy Awards.

Swift told Rolling Stone that she hopes the press don't turn the lyrics into a 'gossip-fest'. "Sometimes the lines in a song are lines you wish you could text-message somebody in real life," she explained. "I would just be constantly writing all these zingers ' like, 'Burn. That would really get her.' And I know people are going to obsess over who it's about, because they think they have all my relationships mapped out. But there's a reason there are not any overt call-outs in that song. My intent was not to create some gossip-fest. I wanted people to apply it to a situation where they felt betrayed in their own lives.'"
Despite Taylor's concerns about the song turning into a 'gossip-fest' it did gander a lot of interest in the identity of the female musician who betrayed her. Media speculation centered on Katy Perry:

An interview described how three dancers on Taylor's tour left before it was completed to join Katy's.

Several sites pointed out that Taylor dated John Mayer before his relationship with Katy, which may have added to the friction between the pair.

Katy herself tweeted a Mean Girls-referencing message ("Watch out for the Regina George in sheep's clothing") not long after the Rolling Stone interview hit the net.
