Earth, Wind & Fire’s classic song “September” is an upbeat anthem and a summer mainstay at black cookouts. Unfortunately, Taylor Swift decided to cover the song and fans are NOT loving it at all.
Swift’s country remake is a dull, banjo-playing rendition that takes the wind (excuse the pun) out the group’s 1978 upbeat funk track. Swift’s rendition almost feels like a heartbreak ballad than a joyous anthem.
Incredulously, Swift even changed Earth, Wind & Fire's opening line, “Do you remember the 21st night September" to “the 28th night September.”
According to Billboard, the tune is part Spotify’s Singles series. But Black Twitter wants the song to be destroy from existence.
When Swift's "September" remake hit the internet, the Twitterverse was up in arms over it.
Some fans were fended that Swift sucked the soul and feel-good vibes out E,W & F's original version. Others are covering their ears and refusing to hear Swift's tarnished version "September."
"If you were curious to hear what unseasoned boiled chicken breast sounded like in song, take a listen to Taylor Swift cover Earth, Wind & Fire," wrote one fan.
Another person tweeted, "Taylor Swift sucked the life and soul out that song."
