Scott Borchetta: Taylor Swift Made a Pop Record

We might finally have an end to the Taylor Swift debate after all. During a backstage interview with Billboard Magazine at iheartradio in Las Vegas on the weekend, Big Machine Records CEO Scott Borchetta admitted that Taylor’s new record “RED” is a “pop record.” In fact, the country mix of “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” won’t even make the record, he says.

He said:

“There was a really specific moment that she and Max Martin and Shellback created and it’s very much a pop record. We’ve never hidden behind what it is.”

Taylor released a more-country leaning song to iTunes last night from “RED” titled “Begin Again.” It quickly found its way to the top of the iTunes charts. Do you think Taylor should go back to country, or are you happy with her “pop” record?
