King of My Heart is the tenth track of Taylor Swift's sixth album reputation. It was released on November 10, 2017.
Meaning and Background
The song describes a romantic relationship. It was influenced by the relationship between Khal Drogo and Daenerys and the drums were influenced by the drums played by the Dothraki clan from Game of Thrones.
“There seem to be these very definitive phases [in love stories]. It doesn’t matter how long that phase lasts, there seems to be a moment where you know it transitioned to the next phase. I always wanted to structure the song where each individual section of the song sounded like a move forward in the relationship, while still being listenable. I wanted the verse to seem like its own phase of a relationship, the pre-chorus to sound like its own phase of a relationship, and the chorus to sound like its own phase of a relationship. I wanted them to all have their own identity but seem like they were getting deeper and more fast paced as the song went on.”Taylor about King of My Heart
Taylor recorded the making of the song and released it for Taylor Swift NOW.
