It has been a long time since we have mentioned the name of the former “American Idol” season 9 star, but the guy is about to start tearing up the internet courtesy of a video that has some serious viral potential: a preemptive breakup song that he has written about Taylor Swift and Harry Styles. It helps that the lyrics here sound almost exactly like something that the “We Are Never Never Getting Back Together” singer would write for the One Direction member, and it also helps that this song manages to have a pretty great hook behind it, too.
Urban insists that the video is all in good fun, and most of the jabs taken in it (including a joke about Styles being able to keep his accent) are playful rather than mean-spirited. Swift really also just had it coming considering her reputation, along with her penchant for relationships lasting only a small amount of time. She and Styles only started to reportedly date weeks ago, and have still not even confirmed anything. In addition to that, the country music superstar also broke up with her last boyfriend Connor Kennedy in October after a whirlwind relationship.
The pairing of Swift and Styles has not exactly been met well by many One Direction fans, with Swift receiving some hate messages on Twitter; meanwhile, others are doing their best to just deny that the two are together until it is “official” (which could be a while, given that Styles surely wants to avoid having her be flamed online any more than she currently is).
