Taylor Swift Is Back (and She’s Furious)

Pop’s sweetheart returns with simmering track that takes square aim at her enemies.

On the back of her sexual assault lawsuit, in which Taylor Swift was vindicated by a jury who determined that Denver DJ David Mueller assaulted the pop star by grabbing her rear-end at a meet-and-greet four years ago, Pop’s most contentious princess returns to claim her throne with new track, Look What You Made Me Do.

Not known for her subtlety, Taylor makes pretty clear in the lyrics that she is riled up, and is in no mood to further suffer fools, spitting lines like: "I got smarter, I got harder in the nick of time," and, "I don't like your little games/ I don't like your tilted stage … no I don’t like you," over a restrained dance beat.

Co-written and co-produced by FUN’s Jack Antonoff, the track is the lead single from Taylor’s upcoming album Reputation, which will be released on November 10. The songstress has partnered with Target to release two 72-page magazines alongside the album that will include "personal poetry and photos, artwork by Taylor, handwritten lyrics, exclusive poster" along with photos from the Look What You Made Me Do video shoot.
