Taylor Swift – The Man (Music Video) | Lover Album

The nature of the music video: A dance choreography.

“The Man” is the fourth track from Taylor’s seventh studio album, Lover. It was first announced in Swift’s September 2019 Vogue interview.

Lover is the seventh studio album by American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift. It was released on August 23, 2019, by Republic Records. As the executive producer, Swift worked with producers Jack Antonoff, Joel Little, Louis Bell, Frank Dukes, and Sounwave on the album. Described by Swift as a “love letter to love”, Lover celebrates the ups and downs of love and incorporates brighter, more cheerful tones, departing from the dark sounds of its predecessor, Reputation (2017). Musically, it is a pop rock, electropop and synth-pop record that contains influences of country, dream pop, bubblegum pop, funk and R&B.

Lover features collaborations with the Dixie Chicks and Brendon Urie of Panic! at the Disco. It was preceded by three singles, the international top-five singles “Me!” and “You Need to Calm Down”, and the title track, all of which reached the top ten on the US Billboard Hot 100. The album received positive reviews from critics, who commended Swift’s songwriting conveying emotional maturity and honesty. A few commentators, however, found the album lengthy and inconsistent in places.

Lover sold three million album-equivalent units within its first week of release, and debuted at number one in countries including Australia, Canada, Ireland, Spain, the UK, and the US.

Lyrics of the song “The Man”:

[Verse 1]
I would be complex, I would be cool
They’d say I played the field before I found someone to commit to
And that would be okay for me to do
Every conquest I had made would make me more of a boss to you
[Pre-chorus]
I’d be a fearless leader
I’d be an alpha type
When everyone believes ya:
What’s that like?
[Chorus]
I’m so sick of running as fast as I can
Wondering if I’d get there quicker if I was a man
And I’m so sick of them coming at me again
‘Cause if I was a man, then I’d be the man
I’d be the man
I’d be the man
[Verse 2]
They’d say I hustled, put in the work
They wouldn’t shake their heads and question how much of this I deserve
What I was wearing, if I was rude
Could all be separated from my good ideas and power moves
[Pre-chorus]
And they would toast to me, oh, let the players play
I’d be just like Leo in Saint-Tropez
[Chorus]
I’m so sick of running as fast as I can
Wondering if I’d get there quicker if I was a man
And I’m so sick of them coming at me again
‘Cause if I was a man, then I’d be the man
I’d be the man
I’d be the man
[Bridge]
What’s it like to brag about raking in dollars
And getting bitches and models?
And it’s all good if you’re bad
And it’s okay if you’re mad
If I was out flashing my dollars
I’d be a bitch, not a baller
They’d paint me out to be bad
So, it’s okay that I’m mad
[Chorus]
I’m so sick of running as fast as I can
Wondering if I’d get there quicker if I was a man (you know that)
And I’m so sick of them coming at me again (coming at me again)
‘Cause if I was a man (if I was a man)
Then I’d be the man (then I’d be the man)
I’m so sick of running as fast as I can (as fast as I can)
Wondering if I’d get there quicker if I was a man (hey)
And I’m so sick of them coming at me again (coming at me again)
‘Cause if I was a man (if I was a man), then I’d be the man
I’d be the man
I’d be the man (oh)
I’d be the man (yeah)
I’d be the man (I’d be the man)
[Outro]
If I was a man, then I’d be the man
