Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn have come out of their purple cloud. Many sources claim the couple has broken up after six years of dating. Where did it all start? They had their first encounter in 2016.
Taylor and Joe have been mum about the specific date they first met. But fans had speculated that it was at the 2016 Met Gala after hearing the words “Flashback when you met me/ Your buzzcut and my hair bleached/ Even in my worst times, you could see the best in me” in the song “Dress.”
A Newfound Love for the Couple
Considering the lyrical shift in her “September” cover, we may estimate that Taylor, 33, and Joe, 32, made their relationship public on September 28, 2016. Taylor resolved then and there to keep her newfound love a secret.
With time, she revealed snippets of information about their romance. Their public display of affection has increased in recent years. They have even worked together (as his pen name is William Bowery) on her 2020 album Folklore and its companion album Evermore, which allowed them to indulge their shared love of moving songwriting.
What Did She Say In The Interview?
During an interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music in December 2020, the singer said, “Joe and I adore sad tunes.” “Music is how we first became close. Well, then… We are the most depressing writers around. Sad tunes really truly speak to us. What else can I say?”
Working together was not a sad tale; by 2020, they had won a Grammy for Album of the Year. Taylor mentioned at the time that they shared a common interest in music. “I say it was a surprise that we started working together, but it wasn’t since we’ve always bonded through music and had similar musical tastes,” she explained.
“He’s always the one playing me music by new artists, and I end up loving all of them because of him.” Joe is also listed as a writer on her more recent Midnights song “Sweet Nothing,” in which she sings, “I found myself running home to your sweet nothings/Outside they’re pushing and shoving/You’re in the kitchen humming/All you ever wanted from me was sweet nothing.”
Fans have maintained a close eye on all of their sweetest times together, even after their sweet nothings have ended. For more insights, catch up with Business Magazine.
