Midnight Red covered AND made a video for Taylor Swift’s “I Knew You Were Trouble”!
Remember Midnight Red? They’re basically what would happen if Far East Movement, Taio Cruz, and LMFAO came together to form One Direction! Or, in other words, they’re a totally crush-worthy boy band who, as luck would have it, covered Taylor Swift’s “I Knew You Were Trouble.” Because all of those things are related, right? Well, even if they’re not related, they’re important.
Watch Midnight Red’s cover of Taylor Swift’s “I Knew You Were Trouble” after the jump.
The “Hell Yeah” singers lent their sparkling vocals to Taylor’s Red jam without forgoing the track’s original melody. The boys each took turns on the verse but came together on the dubstep-y chorus. And did we mention there’s a video?? And that all five Midnight Red men are styled to perfection in it? And that it primarily consists of the bros standing in an abandoned lot looking totally impassioned while singing a song Taylor wrote about one of her many suitors? Because that’s a thing you can watch right now, and it contains some serious boy band magic. You’ve done Taylor — and us, if it’s worth anything — proud, guys.
