The new single, apparently a Kanye West diss song, is part of Taylor Swift‘s highly anticipated sixth album, Reputation.
“The role you made me play: of the fool. No, I don’t like you.”
Jack Antonoff, who worked with Swift on her last album, 1989, co-wrote and co-produced the dance-pop song, which includes an interpolation of Right Said Fred’s “I’m Too Sexy. ”
The whole thing started just last week, when Swift wiped her social media accounts clean and then cryptically began posting videos of snakes. Shortly thereafter, she dropped the cover art and release date for the album.
Meanwhile, the beef betweent the two was revived last year after West’s song “Famous” included the lyric: “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. Why? I made that bitch famous.” West’s accompanying video feature Swift’s likeness naked in bed with other naked celebrities.
Swift denounced the song upon its release, taking issue with being called a “bitch” and West taking credit for her success. Months later, West’s wife Kim Kardashian leaked video and audio of West and Swift’s phone conversation, seemingly confirming that Swift was aware of some of West’s lyrics about her in private. There was no recording, however, of Swift listening to and approving “I made that bitch famous.”
Oooooh! Looks like there’s still some ‘Bad Blood’ between the two…
