Taylor Swift’s ‘Trouble’ Gets Facelift From Selena Gomez, ‘Modern Family’ Star + British Singer
Taylor Swift is No. 1 on the pop airplay charts this week with ‘I Knew You Were Trouble,’ so it was the perfect time for a few notable faces to share their renditions of what looks to become one of the music superstar’s signature tunes.
Swift’s Hollywood BFF Selena Gomez worked ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ into her performance set during her third-annual Acoustic Charity Concert benefiting UNICEF. The cover was rather fitting considering Gomez’s recent split with Justin Bieber — maybe the ‘Naturally’ actress/singer learned a lesson in love from Swift and is grieving her relationship’s demise through music?
‘Modern Family’ star Ariel Winter also tackled the kiss-off tune in what looks to be a home jam session. “Hi, I’m Ariel and I’m doing a cover of Taylor Swift’s ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ and I hope you like it,” the 14-year-old actress shares before diving into surprisingly good cover.
Swift herself pointed fans in the direction of Tom Odell’s gritty copy of the track, which serves as the second crossover single from the country superstar’s triple platinum-selling studio album, ‘Red.’
“So I was already a @tompeterodell superfan… Now I’m just floored. This is so good,” Swift wrote on her official Twitter page. The rising British pop star chose ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ as his obligatory cover tune during a recent in-studio session for BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge.
‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ first debuted big on the charts last year as part of the promotional countdown to ‘Red.’ The track, co-written and produced pop heavyweights Max Martin and Shellback, sold an impressive 416,000 digital downloads in its first week and is now sitting north of double-Platinum. The track reached No. 2 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart and is, right now, the most-played pop song in the country.
