Fans dissected the clues in hopes it would reveal details about her new music, and the pop star finally announced Wednesday that a new song would come this week followed by an album three months later.

It would have been pretty epic. "N--ga sit down. Be Humble", the rapper wrote just hours after T-Swizz released her new single "Look What You Made Me Do".

They're in town, but we're told there's no particular reason for them to trek to The Forum near LAX.

The song is completely different from what Swift has released before.

For most of this week, the entire world (yes, you included) was captivated by speculation as to what Taylor Swift's mysterious social media blackout-cum-snake teaser video stunt would eventually lead to. The song is the first single from her sixth album, "reputation", to be released November 10. Her first public nemesis was Kanye West, who interrupted Swift as she accepted the 2009 MTV Video Music Award for Best Female Video to say that she didn't deserve it.

While she doesn't mention any of the subjects of her various feuds by name, the lyric about the "titled stage" near the beginning of the song seems to be a reference to Kanye West, who used a titled stage on his Saint Pablo tour. "Oh, 'cause she's dead". Following the release of her newest single, the female singer is selling snake-inspired accessories in her online store.


If you listen extremely closely to the chorus where Taylor is singing the lines "look what you made me do", it is actually an interpolation melody from the number 2 hit 1991 song "I'm Too Sexy"!

Right Said Fred took to Twitter to thank Taylor for the song credits and called the song a "marvellous reinvention".

Some fans praised Swift's release, while others were less than complimentary.

Although T.Swift's upcoming performances won't be until 2018, there are already steps you can take to ensure that you can buy tickets to see her shows.

Swift's "reputation" could become the singer's fourth album to sell more than one million albums in its debut week, following "1989", 2012's "Red" and 2010's "Speak Now".
