So Swish is currently playlisted on Radio 1 and a few other radio stations so it seems that it's finally getting a bit of a push. It definitely has its lovers and haters on here but do we think it could be a smash hit and help sell the album too? Will we ever even get a proper video for it at this rate? How big do we think it could be?

Personally, I just don't foresee it being a massive top 10 hit smash and I think it'll struggle unless it gets a really, really good video. If that happens then I could see it doing a Side to Side perhaps and hopefully that will be the case because this album era needs saving immediately laugh.gif

Top 20 would be nice, I'll predict a peak of #19 when the video drops.

Yeah it seems to be slowly rising on iTunes and I can't see it sneaking top 15ish at least on iTunes with the video, but it's destined to flop unless it gets added back to Hot Hits.

Too far on from the album release to save the entire era. The video will drop in the next week or so - with her presenting at the VMAs it'll be a good chance to capitalise on making an appearance. Eitherway I'm loving the track and it still remains in my top three for the year to date.

No, as it is her worst ever single.

That's subjective though, it initially did better than Bon Appetit and has been steady on streaming / iTunes despite no promo and barely any airplay.

I don't think anything will save the album now, but if the video is good/goes viral then it might save face more than anything.

US time Taylor is supposedly releasing on Thursday.

With that said, it wouldn't surprise me if she did a surprise appearance in the Swift Swift video. Both love the media enough for that to happen.

Not "save" but give it more legs.

It can't really save the era when nothing else on the album sounds anything like it or the other two singles.

At best it will be another minor hit for her and she could swiftly move on... or she could if she hadn't decided to do an international tour for this album. She is snookered. The best she can hope for is to get a good hit remix of one of the album tracks like Florence's Spectrum remix or Lana's Summertime Sadness remix.

I was leaning towards no but seeing its progress up UK iTunes, I really think it might. It's not gonna send Witness stratospheric, but two hits out of three this era won't look as bad as one hit and two flops!
