Taylor Swift’s new album announcement — which includes a title, release date, and album art — was not something people embraced with quiet contemplation.
Wednesday was dominated with chatter on social media from overwhelmed fans, healthy skeptics, and others theorizing about the pop singer’s ongoing feud with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian.
Swift announced that Reputation, her sixth studio album, will drop on Nov. 10 and its first single will be unveiled on Friday. The 1989 singer made the news after dropping three video teasers of a hissing snake this week, which many saw as a reference to her beef with West and Kardashian, who in 2016 taunted Swift with snake emoji amid their fallout over West’s song “Famous.”
Fueling suspicions was the black-and-white cover art, which many compared to West’s Life of Pablo album art. “Taylor Swift’s album cover is eerily reminiscent to Kanye’s The Life of Pablo. But y’all have fun lol,” one user tweeted.
