The uptempo breakup track caught her fans’ attention immediately with its undeniable pop sound that had Swift teaming up with hitmakers Max Martin and Shellback.
Yet, Swift promises that when you listen to Red, nothing else on the album will sound like “Never Ever,” and that’s how she wanted it to be.
“This album is interesting because each song stands on its own,” Swift recently told MTV News. “It’s this patchwork quilt of different sounds and different emotions, and I don’t think anything on the record sounds like ‘Never Ever,’ and I’m really happy about that because each song is its own approach to what that particular emotion sounds like, and it’s a really, really different record from anything else I’ve ever done before.”
One of those sounds that had people talking is Swift’s incorporation of dubstep on the infectious track “I Knew You Were Trouble,” also produced by Martin and Shellback. The song, which Swift admits is her favorite on the album, tells the story of falling for someone you knew was wrong to begin with, and Swift knew that bringing a country-flared dubstep into the mix would bring to life the emotion she was trying to convey with this song.
“I brought in this chorus to Max Martin and Shellback and just kind of played it for them, and it was just piano/vocal, and I was like, ‘At the end of the chorus, I want it to just explode,’ and it ended up having a little bit of a flare to it that is reminiscent of dubstep,” Swift said. “It’s very subtle, but I’m really excited because it actually sounds like the intensity of that emotion that I wrote about.”

See Mr. Divabetic’s nutrition game, Serve, Taste or Trash! You must decide which one you’d serve, which one you’d taste and which one you’d trash.
Before you decide to “trash” a veggie for good, why not try to eat it raw? Raw veggies can be more appetizing than their cooked counterparts to people who aren’t crazy about vegetables. The flavors of raw veggies can be milder than those of cooked ones.
