Taylor Swift is back to promoting Red (Taylor’s Version). She had to change the album’s release date because Adele is staging her big comeback. The British songstress dropped her lead single “Easy On Me,” which is already burning up the music charts. Aside from Swift, Adele is a singer who can sell out albums like no other.
Since the singer’s return, the pop star has been quiet. Fans wondered why Swift hasn’t been promoting Red (Taylor’s Version). She has even released a lead single. On the ninth anniversary of the original 2013 album, Swift took to social media to remind them that the revised version is coming out in three weeks.
