For decades, artists have teased fans and played with their emotions by uttering three simple words, “To Be Continued.” Unfortunately, there are hundreds, if not thousands, of videos and storytelling tracks that are just left unfinished. “Roc Boys” by Jay-Z and “Icy” by Gucci Mane are just a few of the videos that come to mind when discussing this topic in the world of Rap and R&B. The world of Pop is no different in this regard, but there are two major stars taking a step toward changing that. Thanks Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift.
Eight years ago, Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift delivered a video for a song called “Everything Has Changed” that featured a story about a young boy falling in love with a young girl. To start the year off right, Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift revisited that video from 2013 and they actually continued something that was meant to be continued. The duo’s new track is called “The Joker and The Queen” and it “captures the coming-of-age story of the now 18-year-olds, Ava and Jack, as they head to university and embark on new adventures.”
Find out how the story of Ava and Jack plays out below in the newly-released “The Joker and The Queen” video.
