Taylor Swift has (finally!) released new music and it’s a lot darker than expected

We knew it was coming, but that doesn't make it is any less exciting. Taylor Swift dropped the first single off her upcoming album Reputation album today and we are getting serious vengeance vibes. Titled 'Look What You Made Me Do' the song heads in a much darker direction to the pop sounds we heard in Swift's 2014 album 1989. Swift viciously sings: "I've got a list of names and yours is in red, underlined" before repeating the chorus: "Look what you made me do." 

The internet has been quick to jump to the (likely accurate) assumption that the track is an open stab at Kanye West. The two have long feuded over West's song 'Famous' where he sings: "I feel like me and Taylor still might have sex / Why? I made that bit*h famous." Swift was quick to deny that she had approved the lyric, until Kim Kardashian posted a video online of West and Swift's phone call seemingly confirming that Swift was aware of and approved the lyric in private.

Perhaps the most obvious reference to Kanye in 'Look What You Made Me Do' is the bridge, where Taylor is speaking on the phone: "I'm sorry, the old Taylor can't come to the phone right now / Why? / Oh, 'cause she's dead!"

Rest in peace old Taylor, this new Taylor is one tough chick. Listen to 'Look What You Made Me Do' below.
