Released on Monday, Dec 10 2012

Taylor Swift 'I Knew You Were Trouble' single artwork.
Taylor Swift's decision to embrace a poppier sound has proven a fruitful one. Her latest album Red sold over 1.2 million copies in the US during its first week, while the collection also marked the star's first ever UK chart-topper. Naturally, with 'Never Ever' continuing to ascend into classic hit status, the singer has lined up another radio-friendly offering for her next release.

"'Cause I knew you were trouble when you walked in/ So shame on me," T-Swizz confesses over multi-layered piano chords, before a dubstep wobble drops in the chorus. Like peanut butter and jelly, Taylor Swift and grimy reverb may seem at odds with her angelic image, but the result is surprisingly satisfying.
