AceShowbiz - Taylor Swift's new song "Ready for It" comes out in full. The singer releases the track only hours after a 1-minute snippet of the song was played by ESPN during an intro before the college football game between Alabama and Florida State.
She sings about a man she falls for, "Knew he was a killer, first time that I saw him /Wonder how many girls he had loved and left haunted /But if he's a ghost then I can be a phantom, holdin' him for ransom /Some, some boys are tryin' too hard, he don't try at all though."
The man is unnamed in the song, but she drops a clue with lyrics: "Younger than my exes but he act like such a man, so I see nothing better /I keep him forever Like a vendetta-ta." Some fans claim that the man is her current boyfriend Joe Alwyn, 26, while others suggest it could be about her 23-year-old ex Harry Styles.
The track is among the new materials in the singer's next studio installment "Reputation" which is due September 10. The lead single "Look What You Made Me Do" was released on August 25 and it broke multiple records. It has reached No. 1 in the United Kingdom, marking her first-ever chart topper across the pond. It also set Spotify's global record with eight million streams on its first day.
Taylor also celebrated the most-viewed lyric video on YouTube with more than 19 million views in its first 24 hours, beating Coldplay and The Chainsmokers' "Something Just Like This" which held the previous record with 9 million views. On top of that, the music video shattered YouTube record for the most-viewed music video with 30 million views.
Taylor Swift is rumored to diss her enemies and exes in "Look What You Made Me Do". The "tilted stage" in the lyrics was supposedly a subtle jab at Kanye West who had tilted stage on his recent Saint Pablo tour. The line, "You ask me for a place to sleep / locked me out and threw a feast", supposedly referred to Calvin Harris and Katy Perry. The DJ made up with Katy, who has a single called "Bon Apetit", following his split from Taylor.
