Taylor Swift's Fun, Happy, New Video for "22" - Where The Boys Aren't

Updated on March 14, 2013

When a new video receives over 66,000 likes and over 9,000 shares on Facebook in less than 8 hours, you can safely make two assumptions: 1) It's a really good video, and 2) It's a Taylor Swift video.

"22" is the latest Swift offering off the multi-platinum award winning CD "Red" and it takes a slightly different, and yet somewhat familiar, visual approach to what's certain to be the young country/pop songstress's next number one hit. Following in the footsteps of her previous "Red" videos - "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together, "Begin Again," and "I Knew You Were Trouble" - "22" portrays the Swift that we've come to expect: sweet, pretty, and fun.

Where the new video differs from the previous offerings is in the casting. No boys. No men anywhere. Not a current boyfriend. Nor an ex. Not even a future beau. Nope, this video is just for the girls...and lots of fun, girly stuff. Like cupcakes, heart-shaped sunglasses, 80's t-shirts and hats, sleepovers, sunbathing, and lots and lots of BFFs!

Lyrically the new song and video are up to the high Taylor Swift standard - smart and well-written while maintaining a light-hearted air and fun feeling. There are the expected references to falling in and out of love and ex-boyfriends and hopes and dreams. And from a melody stand-point, "22" dances along that thin line between country and pop which will allow it to soar to the top of both musical charts.

Timing wise, the new video was released to coincide with the launch of Swift's 2013 "Red" tour which will take one of the most popular concert events around the world. Starting in Omaha, Nebraska the latest installment of Taylor on tour will hit all the usual venues from Florida to Washington to Chicago to Los Angeles. The shows will also fill some of the country's biggest NFL stadiums including the football home fields of the Cowboys, Patriots, Steelers, Eagles, Bears, and Giants.

The world is her stage and even though it's been quite a wild ride from singing the national anthem before a Philadelphia 76ers basketball game at the age of 11 to performing in front of millions, there is something well-grounded about the woman who still understands what it's like to be "22."
