Taylor Swift's new album literally crashed iTunes

Swift also mentions his British roots in Gorgeous when she sings, "You should take it as a compliment that I got drunk and made fun of the way you talk", calling herself his "American queen" on King Of My Heart and teasing, "Do the girls back home touch you like I do?" on Delicate.

iHeartRadio is streaming Swift's new album-but only as part of a curated reputation radio station.

The man in question nearly certainly is British actor Joe Alwyn, whose blue eyes are a recurring motif throughout Reputation. There's still the Future and Ed Sheeran-featuring "End Game" to endlessly dissect, among others!

With lyrics like "I wanted to leave him, I needed a reason" and "With three of us, honey, it's a sideshow", the song seems to reference the several months in 2016 when Swift parted ways with Calvin Harris and dated Tom Hiddleston immediately after, before eventually splitting with him too. The album contains more songs intended for the bedroom than the rest of her releases combined.

The singer kept her last album, "1989", off of Spotify upon its release in 2014, when she removed her entire back catalog from the service. The final track, New Year's Day, provides a tearjerker of an epilogue and the album's most Swiftian refrain: "Hold on to the memories / They will hold onto you / And I will hold onto you".

Maybe for Swift's next album, Reynolds and Lively's younger daughter, Ines, will get to have a crack at backing vocals. Well, first of all, yes, we can assume there will definitely be a tour thanks to her collaboration with Ticketmaster #VerifiedFan, which aims to give fans better access to tickets.

We've already been talking about this one for many moons, and that's been without having even heard most of it. But there's still one way to listen to reputation online legally without buying a copy. The kicker is her explicit reference to the speakerphone call during which Kim recorded her, as Swift continues, "And therein lies the issue/Friends don't try to trick you/Get you on the phone and mind-twist you/And so I took an ax to a mended fence". And that private reputation, she proves, is more important to her than all the headlines in the world.
