As you’ve probably heard (because who hasn’t?) Taylor Swift released an album in July, which she only announced the day before it dropped. Since its release, Folklore has been breaking records. It had the biggest first-week sales of 2020, making Taylor the first artist in history to debut a song and album at #1 simultaneously. It has been applauded for its lyrics, with Rolling Stone claiming, “she dreams up a host of characters to keep her company, and stepping into their lives brings out her deepest wit, compassion, and empathy.”
The possibilities are endless, but in honor of one of the best songwriters making music today, here are 52 ideas for when you need the perfect Instagram caption.
