The Ready Set has some relationship advice for Taylor Swift.
You’ve followed Taylor Swift’s love life a little bit, right? Yeah, we know, despite our best intentions, it’s kind of hard NOT to follow along, especially when it’s as addicting as her records (playing a song-by-song game of “guess the ex” is SO MUCH FUN). That in mind, remember when Taylor tweeted some cryptic portraits of herself in the recording studio after breaking up with One Direction’s Harry Styles? Which we took to mean that she’s currently hard at work writing a scathing new jam about him? Well, The Ready Set’s Jordan Mark Witzigreuter has sort of beat her to it, except in his new song, “For The Better,” he’s got some pointed advice for the “I Knew You Were Trouble.” songstress.
Listen to The Ready Set’s “For The Better” after the jump.
Opening with finger-snaps, gentle chimes, and some well-timed “doo-doo-doos,” Jordan brilliantly recounts Haylor’s breakup without directly naming names. Dude even manages to sneak in a Kanye swipe — genius: “I heard it on a Saturday night/ You hopped on that last minute flight/ I can’t say that I was surprised/ But I’mma let you finish girl, I’m sure you tried.” As the track plays out, Jordan cheerfully tells Taylor how she’s better off: “I know you’re down in the dumps/ But at least you’re rich, and your songs don’t suck/ So take that 13 for luck and find/ That there’s 100 others waiting in line.” Ain’t that the TRUTH?! No more looking sad on boats, lady! Go on with your cleavagy self! You’re way too hot to wallow.
