Nope. I am definitely not "calm" right now and that’s because Taylor Swift’s Lover is officially out now. But what do you know? After listening to Lover on repeat since it came out, I’ve only just realized that Swift sneaked in a few last-minute hints about her album in her "Lover" music video. Oh my gosh, I know! The board games in Taylor Swift’s "Lover" music video were actually clues about her album. Wow, that’s just typical Taylor! Even when her album is literally about to release, she just couldn’t help but give fans a few more easter eggs. Now that Lover is out in full, let’s take a look back at Swift’s music video and see what fans missed.
Swift dropped her music video for the title track just one day before she released her new album. The video is super romantic AF and just so damn aesthetically pleasing. Every single scene is totally gorgeous! I mean, that fish bowl scene was everything, and what about that surprise ending? In my opinion, it’s definitely one of Swift’s best music videos. Of course, fans payed really close attention to every detail in the music video, because, well this is a Taylor Swift music video and nothing is a coincidence.
About a minute into the music video, fans saw quick shots of a couple of board games. Since the board games looked Lover-themed, fans thought the games’ titles could give possible clues about Swift’s new album. The album obviously wasn’t out yet, so fans didn’t know what the board games could be hinting at.
But that’s all in the past now since the album is here and fans, including myself, have been listening to the album non-stop and analyzing each and every lyric. So, what did the board games represent? Lyrics, duh!
Let’s start with the board game that says, "Devils roll the dice, Angels roll their eyes." Those lyrics are from Swift’s song, "Cruel Summer." Before the chorus kicks in, Swift sings, "Killing me slow, out the window/ I’m always waiting for you to be waiting below/ Devils roll the dice, angels roll their eyes/ What doesn’t kill me makes me want you more."
