AceShowbiz - Taylor Swift may be quietly getting her revenge at Scooter Braun. Following the debut of a cryptic cover of her 2017 hit "Look What You Made Me Do", her fans are speculating that there's a conspiracy behind the song that appeared in the latest episode of "Killing Eve".
The country-turned-pop superstar took to Twitter on Sunday, May 24 to share the cover of her song. "VERY STOKED about this cover of lwymmd on @KillingEve by Jack leopards & the dolphin club!!" so she wrote along with a 30-second opening credits of the hit TV series.
The dark, moody take on the single off "Reputation" is performed by previously unknown band Jack Leopards & The Dolphin Club, but Swifties think that there's more behind it. Fans are convinced that Taylor's brother Austin is providing the male vocal tracks on the song.
According to CNN, Taylor had asked "Killing Eve" creator/producer Phoebe Waller-Bridge if her brother could sing on the show's soundtrack when the two met up at the Golden Globes earlier this year. Some speculators also claimed that Austin once used "The Dolphin Club" as his Twitter display name. Additionally, the single cover appears to be based on a photograph of Austin as a little boy wearing a dolphin club T-shirt.
Another theory pointed out that Jack Antonoff, a co-writer of the original version of "Look What You Made Me Do", is listed in the credits as a producer, along with Nils Sjoberg. Fans may remember that Taylor used the pseudonym Nils Sjoberg when she co-wrote her then-boyfriend Calvin Harris' song "This Is What You Came For" featuring Rihanna.
All of these theories suggest that the cover may come from Taylor herself. Fans think that she's keeping it a secret to outsmart Scooter Braun, following their feud due to his purchase of the master recordings of her first six albums when he acquired Taylor's former label Big Machine last year.
At the time, the 30-year-old singer/songwriter said she felt "sad and grossed out" by the news and called the situation "the worst-case scenario." She later also accused Scooter and Big Machine of trying to block her from performing her old songs at the American Music Awards and in her Netflix documentary "Miss Americana".
