• The re-recording of the song, "Love Story (Taylor's Version)", was released on February 12, 2021.
From the Album
• The original "Love Story", released from Swift's second studio album Fearless (2008), was a huge commercial success, selling over 15 million singles across the globe by 2010. With over 18 million copies worldwide, "Love Story" is one of the best-selling singles of all time.
• Because of the scenario, she related to the plot of William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet (1597) and used it as a source of inspiration to compose the song, but replaced the play's original tragic conclusion with a happy ending.
• Critics praised the re-recording of "Love Story" for its crisper production, nostalgic emotion, and Swift's matured vocals. The song topped the Billboard Digital Songs and Hot Country Songs charts, marking her eighth number-one single on the latter. It made Swift the second artist, after Dolly Parton, to reach number one on the Hot Country Songs with both the original and re-recorded versions of a song.
