- READ MORE: TWICE talk new mini-album ‘Taste Of Love’, its tough recording process and their favourite songs to perform
The Taiwan-born singer stays true to the bubblegum pop sound of Swift’s original version, and even enlisted labelmate Bang Chan of boyband Stray Kids to handle Urie’s parts. “‘Cause one of these things is not like the others / Livin’ in winter, I am your summer / Baby doll, when it comes to a lover / I promise that you’ll never find another like me-e-e,” they sing.
The accompanying music video features Tzuyu performing the song inside a luxurious limousine filled with a balloons, in front of a brightly lit marry-go-round and more. Bang Chan does not appear in the clip.
The cover is the latest addition to the girl group’s ‘Melody Project’ series, where the individual members of TWICE release song covers on the group’s YouTube channel.
Previous ‘Melody Project’ releases include Jihyo’s cover of ‘A Late Night of 1994’ by Jang Hyejin and Nayeon’s cover of Ariana Grande‘s ‘Love Is Everything’. Dahyun and Chaeyoung had also recently contributed to the series with their rendition of Rain and J.Y. Park’s ‘Switch To Me’.
TWICE recently made their first domestic return of 2021 with the ‘Taste of Love’ EP on June 11. The six-track project features title track ‘Alcohol-Free’, which written and composed by JYP Entertainment head J.Y. Park.
TWICE also recently spoke about working with Little Mix member Jade Thirlwall, who co-wrote ‘First Time’, a cut from ‘Taste of Love’. The group said they were “very honoured” to have collaborated with Thirlwall, adding that they were long-time fans of the British girl group.
‘Taste of Love’ also scored the nine-member group their first Billboard 200 top 10 entry earlier this week, with the mini-album debuting at number six. The feat also makes TWICE the second-ever K-pop girl group to enter the top 10, after BLACKPINK made it to number two with the release of ‘THE ALBUM’ last year.
